HR Business Partner

Ottawa

We’re looking for someone special to join the Human Relations team at Shopify. HR at Shopify is unique in that we don’t let unnecessary process get in the way of common sense when we’re working with our team.

You will be responsible for supporting the strategy and growth of Shopify’s various business units. You’ll be working on things like planning & hiring, compensation, employee relations, learning & development, and partnering with Leads to support them in their challenges and successes. You’ll also work closely with our Talent Acquisition and Acceleration teams to ensure full support of a business unit.

What we're looking for:

  • Ability to recommend creative solutions to complex situations that you might not have encountered before - even if they go against the grain
  • Ability to embrace chaos and a flexible attitude
  • Experience using insightful data to guide decision making in the area of compensation, performance management, talent management, career development and employee relations
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills with proven ability to understand trends and develop recommendations
  • Rolling up your sleeves to get things done as well as being part of deeply complex strategic discussions

It'd be great if you also had experience with:

  • Working in a product company before
  • Partnering with teams during times of rapid growth
  • 4+ years of human relations experience in a tech, or high-growth company. Ideally 2-3 years of HR Business Partner experience
