About the role

Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standards for how businesses of all sizes operate, market, and sell their products and services. With over 1 million merchants in more than 175 different countries, powered by the most innovative platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while continually looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets. Today, Shopify is a $40 billion company, and there are no signs of slowing down. 

We are looking to add a Senior Analyst to Shopify’s finance team to drive some highly visible cross-functional projects.

  • Leading large, cross-functional projects and build consensus with senior leaders across the organization
  • Analyzing large amounts of information and data quickly and effectively; partner with Data Science on innovative approaches to access and analyze Shopify’s rich data set
  • Delivering clear and actionable insights that help Shopify make great decisions quickly
  • Developing analyses on major business opportunities and risks that inform Shopify’s long-range investment planning
  • Note: a moderate amount of travel (10-20%) should be expected as Shopify’s product and service lines span multiple locations. Learn more here


  • Analysis and project execution experience in management consulting, private equity, investment banking or a similar environment
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Clear and effective written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-moving, ambiguous work environment and navigate through change
  • Willingness to take ownership and build the foundation for future financial and operational analysis from the ground up

Bonus experience:

  • Relevant domain experience (e.g., B2B or B2C SaaS, eCommerce, retail)
  • MBA or advanced degree
  • Experience with SQL
