Our Mission

We’re changing the face of retail

Over the next 10 years, the way retail works will change at a fundamental level. Every store will need an ecommerce website. Customers will expect options of where and how to buy: in-store or online, delivered or for pick-up. It’s an incredibly exciting time for this industry, and we’re going to be right at the centre of it.

The opportunity to shape how retail works all over the world is in our hands. We have a huge playground to work with, and we’ve already proven that we can move faster than anyone else. But right now we’re only part of the way there. To truly change the future of commerce, we need your help.

Life at Shopify

We care about growing great people

Your personal growth is important to us, and we’ll give you everything you need to make it happen: learning budgets, mentorship opportunities, one-on-one coaching, skill development workshops, you name it. We encourage you to experiment, take risks, and pursue the things you care about. And if you make a mistake? That’s ok – learn from it, and share your experience with the team.

We hope you’ll love it here, but we also know that it’s not all about work. We’ll help you maintain a healthy balance with a gym allowance, parental leave, childcare benefits, flexible work hours, and catered meals to give you more time for the things you care about most.

We’re growing quickly, so there are plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. You’ll have the creative freedom to make a real difference in the world of commerce, and the chance to work with some of the best in the business.

Draw the owl. That’s our motto. You get the tools you need to do great things, but it’s up to you to make it happen.

Our offices

Shopify has offices in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Waterloo. We also have employees working remotely in cities across the globe.

Located in the historic Seagram Distillery Museum, Waterloo is the home of Shopify Plus, the Shopify offering aimed at high-volume merchants. With two major universities, 3 colleges and hundreds of innovative companies calling the Kitchener-Waterloo region home, there’s always something exciting happening nearby.

The Toronto office lives in a heritage building at King West and Spadina Avenue. It’s within walking distance of some of the city’s best neighbourhoods and the local startup community. You’ll find a beautiful view of the CN Tower at this fast-growing office, where we focus on marketing, growth, and product development.

Home to the majority of Shopifolk, the new Ottawa office is just a few blocks away from Parliament Hill, Rideau Canal, and the Byward Market where Shopify first started. Our head office focuses on product, platform, support, and operations. Each of its six floors has a theme, and it spans over 100,000 square feet.

Located at Victoria Square, our Montreal office focuses on the end-consumer experience for our Shopify stores. Surrounded by many of the small, diverse businesses that Shopify supports, the office is walking distance from historic Old Montreal. The area is home to some of Montreal’s finest restaurants, festivals, and gathering spots.
