Tis' the Season to get a Better Job


Do you want to be a Shopify Guru? Our support services will soon be going 24/7, so we’re hiring more Gurus to help out our merchants around the clock.

While we’re not huge fans of traditional interviews here at Shopify, we are huge fans of parties. So instead of inviting you in for a ho-hum one-on-one, we’re hosting a big bash for potential Shopify Gurus on December 13th from 7-10pm. Specific location is TBA, but it will be in Ottawa, Canada.

You’ll get to hang out with fun people who are interested in working at Shopify, chat about the potential job, have a few laughs – and a few drinks! You can meet the people who might become your colleagues, and get a great feel for the job, the space, and Shopify’s culture.

But wait! Before you jump on the party bus, you should probably know exactly what a Shopify Guru is:

Shopify Guru
[shaw-puh-fahy goo-roo]
1. A rare, interesting character who gets a kick out of helping Shopify’s customers get their stores up and running.  A guru is comfortable on the phone and can type like a maniac. In the wild, gurus are often spotted laughing at or telling a great joke, as they have a naturally keen sense of humour.

Space is limited, so this party is invite-only. If you’re interested in attending, please enter your info in the provided fields at the bottom of one of our 3 Guru job postings: daytime, weekend and evenings and overnight

Mention in your application that you want to attend our Guru party on December 13th, and we’ll be in touch!

    I have been told I am an interesting character … not quite sure if it was meant in a good way? You can find out by inviting me to attend on the 13th :)

    I’m praying that the 9th is a soft deadline. I applied and would love to attend the holiday par-tay.

    I just want to make sure that if I DO wear a tie I won’t get kicked out if I show up pants-less?
    Can you confirm or deny this for me in advance because it would definitely help me out and prevent undo em-bare-ass-ment.

    I just wanted to confirm that I can bring some high kicks and cartwheels along.
