Technical Program Manager - Dev Degree


The Dev Degree team at Shopify combines the best of traditional academic education, industry mentorship, and learning by doing, to engage and support undergraduate students in learning development skills. We need experienced instructors to develop and deliver technical education that will help our students thrive as software developer interns at Shopify.

You’ll work with a team of instructors to create and deliver courses that teach our students industry software development skills alongside their academic degree.

With the team, you will evaluate student progress and provide regular feedback to students. As part of your role, you will build and maintain close relationships with the developer community at Shopify to understand the technologies, tools and techniques we use to build our world-class products. You’ll incorporate this knowledge into your courses to help our students make an impact quickly when they join our dev teams as interns.
