At Shopify, one of our values is "do things, tell people." Our Engineering team is working hard at the former, and we're adding strong, strategic communicators to our team to support the latter. Engineering communicators at Shopify have a passion and curiosity for technical nitty-gritty and knowledge sharing, and they're comfortable working with Shopifolk to craft smart, engaging communications internally and externally.
