Trust & Security spans a broad scope at Shopify. Regardless of the team we work on, we approach our work with two goals in mind : (1) reducing our teammates’ toil with software and (2) safeguarding our 600K+ merchants’ livelihoods.
Ultimately, we want to enable Shopify to innovate quickly in our default to open culture while maintaining a robust security posture it’s not about creating a perfect solution that will never change or evolve.
We encourage people to push beyond a narrow scope and constantly iterate here, with the freedom and support to try new ideas and approaches.
The thing is, choosing the right role can be really tricky when you don’t know the inner workings of a particular team at a given company.
