Our Mission

We’re changing the face of retail

Over the next 10 years, the retail world will change at a fundamental level. Every store will need an ecommerce website. Customers will expect flexible 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 Shopify is going to be right at the center 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 continue building the future of commerce, we need your help. The strength of our teams is built on an incredible diversity of perspectives, backgrounds, and talents coming together and it’s why we actively seek the brightest minds in the world. For that reason we strongly encourage international applicants to put their hat in the ring and apply!

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.

The freedom remote work offers does wonders for your happiness. Productivity and overall motivation level ties in directly with your mood, which explains why every remote Guru succeeds on a daily basis.

The Best Place to Work in Canada

Shopify was named the #1 Best Place to Work in Canada for 2017 by Glassdoor. Unlike most workplace awards, this award is based solely on feedback from employees over the past year. It's easy to love coming to work every day when you're given flexibility, autonomy, and the ability to have a meaningful impact while honing your craft.
