How to Become a Freelance Shopify Developer

Do you love helping entrepreneurs launch ecommerce businesses? Do you enjoy knowing that your work will set the tone for future storefronts and brands that may someday work their way into mainline fashion, retail, or CPG? If you do, and you also have expertise with Shopify development, you may be a great fit as a Shopify developer. When you become a freelance Shopify developer, you get the freedom and flexibility to work where you want and create your own schedule.

What does a Shopify developer do?

Shopify developers may work on a variety of tasks that include installing Shopify on their client’s domain, setting up a Shopify store, and customizing the site’s look and feel based on their client’s needs and feedback. PHP, JavaScript, and jQuery are required coding skills for a Shopify developer.

Developers will work with their clients to customize or develop Shopify themes. Shopify developers are able to work in a fully remote environment. This requires excellent written and/or verbal communication skills.

One skill that can set an expert apart from others is an in-depth knowledge of APIs from Shopify and other ecommerce platforms, such as AliExpress and Amazon.

What skills do I need to become a Shopify developer?

Many of the required skills to become a Shopify developer can be acquired through schooling or MOOCs and other online courses such as those offered by Coursera and Udemy and tutorials provided by YouTube creators.

Common skills a Shopify developer should possess include:

  • Knowledge of the most recent standard of HTML (currently HTML5)
  • Knowledge of the most recent standard of CSS (currently CSS3)
  • Understanding of GraphQL, the JavaScript ecosystem, Liquid, and React
  • Understanding of Shopify development tools and Shopify merchant tools

Should I get a Shopify developer certification?

In addition to developing your skills, obtaining a professional certification can help your Upwork profile stand out.

Some examples of popular development certifications for the Shopify platform include:

  • Shopify Development Partner Certification
  • App Development Certification
  • Business Fundamentals Certification
  • Product Fundamentals Certification

Other certifications are available from third parties via sites such as Udemy, Coursera, and edX. However, Employers and clients may not evaluate these and they might not carry the same influence as an official Shopify certification.

What are the job responsibilities of a Shopify developer?

A Shopify developer is generally expected to carry out all technical web development tasks related to Shopify, Shopify integrations, Shopify apps, or Shopify issues. Further, Shopify developers must build, source, customize, or otherwise provide customized Shopify storefronts.

Standard integrations may include Amazon, Alibaba and AliExpress, Oberlo, Dropified, and ActiveCampaign. A Shopify dev must be able to plug-and-play these integrations or build custom integrations as needed. The scope of integration will likely depend on the client, their sales volume, and their niche.

Some expert Shopify developers also offer custom dashboards that enable their clients to see their sales and other KPIs in real time. This service generally increases customer satisfaction by removing steps from their operation to check their ecommerce store’s stats.
