About the role
At Shopify, we build products that help entrepreneurs around the world to start and grow their businesses. We’re the world’s fastest growing commerce platform and we have no plans of slowing down. To accelerate our mission to help make commerce better for everyone, we need a strong product manager to take Start’s mobile products to the next level.
We believe that online retail is one of the most defining avenues for entrepreneurs to reach independence, but almost everything about the internet favours already-large existing companies. Every day thousands of new hopeful entrepreneurs sign up for Shopify without much or any business experience. The Start product line exists to supercharge aspiring entrepreneurs' abilities to become successful with the best guidance, network, and motivation possible. We'll help our 1 million global merchants and also support new ones as we rapidly grow. Entrepreneurship is a hard but rewarding experience. We want to create more entrepreneurs and make it easier than ever to start a business. Come join us to do your life's best work!
