RnD Camp Content Designer

R&D - Development – Engineering

RnD Camp is an education experience for Shopify employees in R&D roles (Data, Engineering, UX, Production Engineering, Product). The initial experience is a two-week program presented once a month. Our goal is to create a space for on-boarding where diversity of thought, being vulnerable, and failing forward is encouraged and celebrated. No imposter syndrome here!

With a hack-days-style project, campers are immersed in current context, real problems, and work in diverse teams using Shopify’s tools to Get Shit Done and make commerce better for everyone!

Subject matter experts and emerging leaders will model the skills, knowledge, and attitudes Shopifolk need to own their own development, make an impact faster, and get their life’s work started at Shopify.

As the RnD Camp Content Designer you will be creating materials and an experience that scales learning at Shopify 🚀

As the RnD Camp Content Designer you will:

    • Have an above-average comfort with technology and coding, meaning that you could code your own games, build your own simple apps, etc.
    • Turn learning outcomes into tangible resources and experiences that people actually want to engage with
    • Deliver the resources and experiences you create to Shopifolk so that you can harness your own feedback and continually improve what you create
    • Put the user at the heart of everything you build. Always asking how will this improve the lives of new Shopifolk in RnD?
    • Be a swiss-army-knife of creativity (The ideal person could lead an improv workshop in the morning, produce a mini doc in the afternoon, and create infographics by night)
    • Thrive on change as our program continues to scale

It would be awesome if you:

    • Are proficient in tools/programs like: Slack, Ai, Sketch, Piktochart, Google Tools, Keynote, Final Cut or iMovie, X Code, Git and GitHub, Ruby, React, Text Editors, etc.
    • Have experience teaching or facilitating in a non-traditional setting
    • Have experience leading content strategy or external communications
    • Are proficient at building/hosting online-experiences (communities of practice, e-learning, meetups, tweet-ups)
    • Speak multiple languages
    • Are comfortable on camera 🎥
