Trust & Security spans a broad scope at Shopify. On the Security Tooling Team, we build everything from scanners to detect all manner of nastiness, to tools that increase visibility into our networks, to automated reputation monitoring systems … and that’s a very small subset of what we do! We approach our work with two goals in mind: (1) reducing our teammates’ toil with software and (2) safeguarding our 600K+ merchants’ livelihoods.
We are looking for a Technical Lead to build out security tooling for the wider Trust & Security team. Coming in at this level, you will design and build security tools which the team will leverage to make commerce more secure for everyone. You will work on projects that have a positive impact across the Trust & Security team, and in turn, allow them to respond quickly and with greater accuracy.
To give you an idea of the type of work we do, here’s a talk by Diana Birsan and Steven Scott about a tool developed to protect our Default to Open culture. We also encourage you to check out our Engineering Blogfor more info about engineering at Shopify.
We know that looking for a new role can be both exciting and time-consuming, and we truly appreciate your effort. Krystle is an actual real live person and is looking forward to learning more about you. Tell us why this is the role for you!
