The Candidate Ltd

The Candidate are recruiting for a Senior Shopify Developer to join a bespoke digital agency who have built an outstanding reputation through focusing on their core value; Engineering-Led Digital Transformations. Built on the philosophy of utilising the most modern technology and functionality, the agency has become well known across the eCommerce space for their technical ownership and bespoke Shopify solutions. With further growth planned into the end of 2021, and a variety of exciting projects signed off at major clients, the team are looking to recruit a Senior Shopify Developer who’s able to bring a wealth of technical experience as you grow into a leadership role.

As the Senior Shopify Developer, you will be supporting business stakeholders in creating complex, unique and bespoke solutions to technical issues across the eCommerce space. Joining a wider full stack development team, this role will have a bias towards Front end development with a creative eye for detail being a significant bonus. Since our client is a direct Shopify partner, you’ll have the opportunity to work on brand new features & functionality before most of the tech community. ON a day to day basis, you’ll be collaborating closely with the development team to implement new solutions or introduce ideas on how they can improve their systems & workflows.

This role is fully remote. The team have been fully remote since the agency was founded so there’s no teething issues throughout their globally remote team.

Key Responsibilities of the Senior Shopify Developer:

  • Design, build, and maintain clean, reusable, and reliable Shopify theme codebases.
  • Deliver readable, well-documented, and efficient code.
  • Contribute to the evolution of our development workflows and tooling.
  • Implement software best practices and codebase maintenance, such as refactoring and upgrades of tooling where suitable.
  • Lead a software team when needed, including running sprint planning meetings and leading code review processes.
  • Lead implementation / solution suggestions working with stakeholders on the client side as well as our internal Project Manager.

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Commercially experienced in Shopify development with a proven ability to create bespoke functionality which addresses key eCommerce needs.
  • Knowledge across the Front end technical stack (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) is essential with any exposure to modern javascript frameworks (such as vue, react, angular) being a bonus.
  • Either led development teams in the past, or wanting to move into a role which will offer training on how to move into a Lead role where you are responsible for managing the wider engineering function.
  • Legacy systems have areas of Ruby built into their technical stack, so any exposure to Ruby would be a benefit but not essential. If you were not wanting to get stuck into any Ruby, there’s no need to do so!

What’s In It For You:

  • Salary up to £55K with structured progression to a Lead role (and therefore salary progression too!)
  • Autonomy to introduce creative ideas and work closely with the Directors to manage the technical leadership throughout the development team.
  • Workspace / Equipment Allowances
  • Excellent support function throughout the business with an annual company holiday each year to meet your national & international colleagues.
  • Flexible working hours with the freedom to decide when works best for you.
