Product Director, Marketplaces (APAC, Remote)
- Region: Asia
- Department: Product Management
Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standard for how companies of all sizes sell their products and services online and off. With 1,000,000+ merchants in more than 175 different countries and the best platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while constantly looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets.
Shopify’s mission is to make commerce better for everyone. From building a new product feature for our commerce platform, to helping a merchant troubleshoot an issue over the phone, we want to empower our ecosystem through our work.
Having a unified vision, a north star, is vitally important to ensure that we are all headed in the same direction. No matter the size or experience, we want to power every merchant’s experience. This is why we’re all here.
Shopify is now permanently remote, and we’re working towards a future that is digital by design. That location you see above? Consider it merely an example of hundreds of potential locations across where Shopify is hiring. Learn more here: https://www.shopify.com/careers/work-anywhere
