Partner Education & FED Advocate

As a Partner Education & FED (Front-end Development) Advocate for the Shopify Partnerships Education & Community team,  your role will be to produce high quality weekly content that helps our expanding Partner ecosystem succeed.

You’ll be working across mediums including articles (on our own blog and third-party publications), screencasts, webinars, and in-person presentations and will be covering topics including Shopify themes, Liquid, front-end tooling, workflows, UX, JavaScript, performance and more.

This role is ideal for a web designer/front-end developer looking for a fresh challenge away from day-to-day design and development. You’ll need to be passionate about connecting with other designers on web design and front-end development topics, as well as having a knack for explaining complex techniques in a simple and understandable way.

You’ll need to have:

  • A demonstrative background in, and passion for, web design and/or development
  • A deep understanding of the Shopify Platform — in particular, Shopify themes and all front-end Platform considerations
  • A proven record of publishing technically-focused articles which explain code-related concepts
  • A deep appreciation and understanding of modern front-end development tools and how they can help designers and front-end developers work with the Shopify Platform
  • A passion for sharing and helping our Partners achieve their best work
  • Excellent written skills in English

It’d be great if you had:

  • Existing relationships with blogs and publications in the web design industry
  • Existing work published on industry blogs and websites
  • An existing audience (even if it’s small)

You’ll be working on things like:

  • Writing clear, accurate, and engaging technical documents and online content for the Partner ecosystem
  • Acting as a bridge between Shopify and our third-party designer and developer community by improving documentation, developing resources, and promoting the benefits of the Shopify platform
  • Planning, creating, hosting, and promoting regular screencasts and webinars for our Partners around the world
  • Researching and advocating the best toolsets for designers and front-end developers using the Shopify platform
  • Promoting your work to our Partners as well as other relevant audiences
  • Work with third-party blogs and publications with the aim of introducing and promoting the Shopify Platform to their readers in an engaging way
  • Tracking the success, engagement, and long-tail of your articles, screencasts, and webinars
