We’re always on the lookout for people who are excited to work on hard problems at a global scale in a friendly, collaborative environment. If this sounds familiar, we’d love to hear from you.
About the role:
The Senior UX Designer role will be an integral part of evolving and defining how we represent Shopify in Asia Pacific countries. You’ll work directly with a globally distributed, multidisciplinary team of Brand Strategists, Marketing Specialists, Content Strategists and Front-End Developers to help grow the number of customers using Shopify and the reach of Shopify’s brand in APAC.
You and the other members of the team will constantly work to improve how we position Shopify to our merchants in APAC and create compelling content that resonates with our audiences. Working on multiple types of projects at once, you’ll have to be good at managing your time and priorities as well as resourceful and flexible. We are a friendly, collaborative team, who leave their ego at the door, focussed on creating high-quality experiences that grow Shopify above everything else.

You’ll be working with:

    • Product Marketing
    • Communications
    • Growth
    • Social Events & Offline Marketing
    • PR
    • In-country teams

So that you can:

    • Evolve the user experience of Shopify marketing projects in APAC
    • Champion brand standards and guidelines for Shopify in APAC
    • Optimize the effectiveness of our marketing properties & activations
    • Champion projects to ensure that they are progressing at a high quality
    • Improve the effectiveness of the entire team by sharing insights, new tools, and best practices for localization in international markets

You’ll need to have:

    • Proficiency in English and Mandarin at a business level
    • A keen eye for good design, and attention to detail
    • Passion for unpacking and solving complex problems
    • The ability to prioritize simultaneous project requests from various teams
    • A soft spot for the end user – advocating for them in all areas of your work is core to what you do
    • An understanding that great experiences come from collaborative decision-making with front-end developers, engineers, researchers, content strategists, and other disciplines
    • The desire to drive creative through an end to end UX process, including research, ideation, iteration, and validation
    • Experience designing and shipping experiences for international audiences, with a focus on Asia Pacific countries
    • A passion about building tailored experiences across a diverse set of languages and cultures
    • A distaste for lorem ipsum — caring about getting the copy right needs to be a priority
    • Proficiency with design & prototyping tools (Sketch, Photoshop, etc)
    • A passion for solving design problems while wearing multiple hats and owning all facets of design (content strategy, wireframing, art direction, and interaction design)
    • Exceptional UI abilities shown in an extensive portfolio of projects
    • Knowledge and familiarity with a data informed approach to design — you’ve used tools and resources needed to measure success of design decisions (A/B testing tools, Google Analytics, etc.)
    • Adjust quickly to shifting approaches, situations, and priorities
    • Experience solving problems where there are many dependencies and interactions with different systems or areas
How to apply:
If you’re interested in helping us shape the future of commerce around the world, send us a few samples of your work: portfolio, Dribble, Behance, publications, or whatever represents what you do best, along with your CV.
