Job post summary
Location Americas
Team Sales and Account Management

About the role

The world has changed and we’re changing with it! Although our roots are in e-commerce, we are working with many of the world’s most innovative brands on the renaissance of online and in-person commerce, powered by Shopify technology. As our merchants reinvent themselves with courage, ingenuity, and drive, we too are reimagining our future. We are revolutionizing how we work and support our merchants by going “digital by default” and as we build the future of commerce. 

Shopify is looking for quick-thinking, vibrant and naturally curious individuals to join our Global Outbound Sales Team as Sales Development Representatives. In this role, you are responsible for prospecting and qualifying leads to opportunities, including warm and cold outreach via phone, email and text. You will also be responsible for keeping up-to-date with new commerce trends and developing an understanding of our product offerings to help more merchants grow on Shopify. 

At Shopify, there is a unique opportunity for high-impact sales professionals to build a career with a company that will continually provide opportunities for growth. You will be the merchant’s dedicated point of contact during the qualification period and your work will make a direct impact on our goals to make commerce better for everyone.

We are hiring across Canada and all of the United States of America. We can do this because Shopify is now permanently remote, and working towards a future that is digital by design. Learn more about what this can mean for you.

You'll be working on things like:

  • Generate interest in the Shopify platform
  • Create a positive and valuable first impression to merchants by providing an unrivalled merchant experience 
  • Maintain active engagement with new and existing leads through our CRM, Salesforce
  • Generate qualified leads for our Account Executives by conducting high-level qualifying conversations with prospective merchants
  • Contribute to building culture and upholding Shopify values
