Facilities Technician

Waterloo, Canada

At Shopify, we care deeply about our people and offices. We want to create spaces that encourage Shopifolk to do their best work. In this role, you will support the day-to-day operations of our space as a Facilities Technician.

You'll need to:

  • Have experience troubleshooting common facilities problems (i.e. HVAC, plumbing, lighting)
  • Have a solid understanding of construction methods and materials
  • Be extremely organized with great prioritization skills
  • Value dynamic workspaces that have a strong impact on culture
  • Love helping people
  • Enjoy working in a ridiculously fast-paced environment
  • Thrive on change and be comfortable with doing things unconventionally
  • Have an ability to “wear many hats” to get the job done

It'd be great if you have:

  • A transferrable technical skill - think serious woodworking skills or in depth knowledge of Building Automation Systems
  • An artistic eye - the theme of our most recent new space was “Crafting” so each one of us crafted a piece of furniture or art for the space
  • Worked with like-minded companies who value office culture 
  • Experience in Facilities Operations

You'll be working on things like:

  • Repairing and assembling furniture
  • Troubleshooting common facilities problems (i.e. HVAC, plumbing, lighting)
  • Monitoring the #facilities channel (our team chat group) and helping out Shopifolk with their facilities related problems
  • Coordinating deliveries and maintaining stock rooms
  • Executing team moves
  • Reviewing and developing new processes to ensure efficiency
  • Managing records, invoices, payments and document sharing
