For over a year at Shopify, I worked on a team delivering critical initiatives related to the integrity and governance of Shopify's Partner Platform.
Our team focused on preventing abuse and fraud in the ecosystem. Working closely with operations, data science, and engineering, we selected and shipped several high-impact projects that saved millions of dollars in unrealized profits for Shopify.
In addition to the financial benefits, we helped create a more secure and trustworthy platform for Shopify partners, merchants, and buyers by removing bad actors and implementing solutions that prevented exploitation on the platform.
The team did not have a Product Manager, and it was critical to de-risk solutions, so I led several projects in a PM role.
During my time on the Experts Marketplace, I worked on various projects focused on improving Expert Discovery, improving how Merchants find and connect with Experts to get the help they need. Uncovering the diverse needs of Merchants and how Shopify Partners work with them provided many interesting challenges for myself on the team.
Shopify and Shopify Ecosystem went through several restructurings during my time there. I was impacted by health issues during this time, so I stepped back from a leadership role and worked on the team in a Senior Design role.
I collaborated with UX Research, Content Designers, Product Designers, Front End Developers, and Product Managers on several projects. Due to shifting priorities and team restructurings, most of the projects I worked on did not ship.
