Introducing the Shopify Sales Academy

Applications for the January 2019 session will be accepted this summer

No experience? No problem

Get sales training, get experience, and get paid

At Shopify Plus, we’re always looking for hard working, talented individuals eager to get into the working world and make an impact. Our sales team is rapidly growing and looking for new talent but with minimal sales training offered in post secondary school programs, it can be difficult to find new grads that are ready to be a full time member of the team. How do we solve this problem?

As a student of the Shopify Sales Academy, you’ll participate in a paid, six-month training program. Classroom and hands-on experience come together to give you the knowledge and skills needed to join the Shopify Plus sales team … or excel at any future role in your career.

Applications for the January 2019 session will be accepted this summer

Sean Nishimura, Shopify Plus Sales Rep

“Working the full sales cycle is something that I really value about this role. When a deal closes I know it’s because of the hard work I put in to find the brand, get the attention of someone in the right role, create compelling reasons for them to move, and successfully take them through all deal stages. Each deal is almost like a project, and it’s rewarding to see the project through from inception to completion.”

Vanessa Buttinger, Shopify Plus Sales Rep

“What I love most about working in this environment is the flexibility I have. Being on the Outbound team, I choose who I want to target and which brands I want to work with. This unrestrictive environment has helped me learn to manage relationships and create opportunities I would have never realized possible right out of school.”
