Your Role at Bolt

We are witnessing a massive shift of consumer presence from offline to online. With it, there is a need for technologies that enable online businesses to thrive. Bolt is at the center of this universe leading the next generation of ecommerce, having created a best-in-class buying experience from checkout to fraud detection, payments and more. With our help, retailers can successfully compete with the online retail giants that have the means to invest in technology. 

The Merchant Experience (MX) team based out of Toronto is leading the efforts to make Bolt the easiest to setup and highest converting buying experience solution for online retailers. Our team builds the features, APIs and integrations that allow retailers’ systems to communicate with the Bolt ecosystem. In addition, by owning checkout, Bolt sits at a critical junction in the shopper’s interaction with a retailer. This gives us insight into customer behaviour as it relates to merchant’s checkout experience, products, promotions and much more. With this in mind, the MX team is building out an analytics platform that provides retailers with actionable data to better serve their customers.

We are looking for someone who is excited when facing big challenges, thrives when given autonomy to figure out solutions and loves diving deep into complex systems. If this describes you, get in touch with us!
