Life at Shopify

Culture is the product of strong values and purpose, empathetic leadership, and a place where all people feel they belong.

Marki Sveen — Staff UX Developer


We care about the people we work with. That’s why we offer benefits designed to help you and your family stay healthy. This includes self-directed budgets to support learning and growth, and a home office allowance to personalize your at-home experience.

Conformity kills creativity

Diversity is essential for building great products, and necessary for building a vibrant and inclusive culture. When we appreciate all perspectives, and remove roadblocks for one another, we maximize our collective impact.

Autonomy rules

Magic happens when people are given the freedom to create their own path. We trust you to be resourceful, solve problems as they arise, and define how you want to make an impact.

Scale for impact

Our product helps more than 1,700,000 merchants worldwide do what they love. There are no small problems at Shopify; every project you touch will have a real impact on merchants’ livelihoods, and that makes our work incredibly fulfilling.

Propelled by ambition

We’re growing quickly and, like a rocket ship, we show no signs of slowing down. We want to define the future of entrepreneurship, be a 100 year company, and the global engine that powers commerce.

Learn with the best

Talented people choose to work with us because we provide everything they need to feel challenged, hone their craft, and learn from one another. Surround yourself with a world-class team and level up quickly.
