Shopify Development Position

Location: New Zealand

 

If you can create & maintain awesome software applications, and know Shopify inside out, keep reading!

Doubledot Media is a New Zealand-based company that creates online software applications and invests in high-growth eCommerce businesses. This role will be heavily focused on feature development & maintenance for one of our portfolio companies, Bushbuck Outdoors, running on the Shopify platform.

Our projects are generally focused on making large, material changes to our own site or designing and developing new geo-specific sites from the ground up. You'll work closely with the founders, our designer, and marketers, to develop and deploy features and updates that best serve our customers.

We're a small but quickly growing eCommerce company. As one of the early hires, there is an opportunity for this to be a high impact position. An appropriately ambitious individual will have a huge opportunity to lay the groundwork for the company's future.

What would you be doing?

  • Working with teammates to improve our platform
  • Suggesting and developing software improvements
  • Maintaining existing codebases
  • Full Shopify site development
  • Implement designs in CSS/HTML/JS
  • Configuring Shopify third-party apps
  • Integrations with 3rd party APIs

Skills & knowledge important for this role

These are the must-haves. Basically: be a web developer :) 

  • 4–5+ years of industry experience
  • Hands-on programming experience with Shopify and heavy modifications of Liquid
  • Proficient in HTML, CSS, and JS
  • Understand the web—REST, HTTP verbs, basic HTTP status codes, etc.

Cool reasons to work with us:

  • Flexible hours
  • Relaxed, ego-free, family-friendly work culture
  • Novelty coffee mugs (and the coffee to go with them)
  • An extremely comfortable chair 

If you think you have a solid understanding of a decent chunk of our requirements (or similar), at least 4-5 years of commercial experience, have the spark we're looking for and want to show off your skills, we want to hear from you!

This position is open to applicants that can work from our Christchurch office. To start with we are looking at 15-20 hours a week but are open to discussing options around this.

  1. Record a short (2-3 minute) cover letter video and upload it somewhere where we can see it. Tell us a little bit about yourself, and why you think you’d be great for this role. Make sure to include examples of sites and apps you have developed on Shopify.
