About you

You’re a builder. You love to roll up your sleeves, dig into a project, and directly impact growth and success. When faced with limits and ambiguity, you become more — not less — creative. You love this zone.  You bring a highly-entrepreneurial mindset being open for constant learning and growth. You have an idea about what you want to become and are ready to put yourself on that trajectory path

You’re smart, confident, highly competent—and humble enough not to have an ego. You’re a skilled communicator who welcomes honest, candid feedback, and your first instinct is to collaborate with others to challenge and make your ideas even better. You partner with a cross-functional team to help drive the experience from conception to launch (and then some).

As the eCommerce Lead, you'll hire and lead a 10 person team, both remotely and in Toronto, to drive a pivotal strategic product that will propel our platform’s next phase of growth. Together, we will be building a fully integrated headless eCommerce solution from the ground up. This platform integration will not only rival market leaders but will blow past them with a plug-and-play strategy to integrate into CMS platforms and offer true omnichannel solutions for everyone.
