Careers at Shopify

February 24, 2020

We’ve read a lot of cover letters over the years. Now it’s your turn. We’re applying to you.

Finding the right job is hard work. It takes time and effort to get to know a company – to be sure it’s the kind of place where you can make an impact, somewhere you want to invest your talent and energy, and do your life’s work. We’d like to save you some of that effort by applying to you, first.

We’re Shopify. Our mission is to make commerce better for everyone – but we’re not the workplace for everyone. We thrive on change, operate on trust, and leverage the diverse perspectives of people on our team in everything we do. We solve problems at a rapid pace. In short, we get shit done.

If you’re ambitious, make an impact everywhere you go, and you’re ready to shape the future of commerce with us, check out our resumé or jump straight to jobs.


We build products that help entrepreneurs around the world start and grow their businesses. As a workplace, we challenge and support you to hone your craft and make an impact.
