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 operating in a fully distributed work-from-home “digital by default” environment as we build the future of commerce. 

Our growing sales teams work directly with notable brands and entrepreneurs to develop their commerce strategies — whether that is starting or expanding their brick & mortar operations with our POS solution, e-commerce business with Plus, adopting our Money solutions, or leveraging the power of Shopify fulfilment to scale.

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.


  • Build and lead a team of diverse and high performing Account Executives

  • Inspire, engage, and excite young professionals to develop themselves and prepare for their career in sales

  • Be accountable for growth and achieving key metrics

  • Forecast sales activity and revenue achievement while creating satisfied merchants

  • Drive Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) and build an environment in which everyone can succeed and belong



  • 3+ years of experience leading Sales or Business Development teams. An emphasis on Cloud, SaaS, Martech and Commerce is preferred

  • Strong people management skills with proven track record of developing talent

  • Proactive, independent thinker with high energy and positive attitude working amongst the chaos of diving into a new market 

  • Proven ability to find unique and efficient approaches to developing and delivering a plan and continually looking for a better way to do things

  • Deep interest in analyzing data and the ability to see beyond the numbers

  • Desire to work in a team environment where you make each other better

  • Have an impact; be involved and do something incredible

  • Fluent spoken and written German and English skills

Our belief is that a strong commitment to diversity & inclusion enables us to truly make commerce better for everyone.
