# Things you should know

This is not zero-sum work. Our product enables entrepreneurship to create new value for the world and unlocks unlimited personal growth for the people who build it.
We all get shit done, ship fast, and learn. We operate on low process and high trust, and trade on impact. You have to care deeply about what you’re doing, and commit to continuously developing your craft, to keep pace here. That means Shopify is not the right place for everyone.
If you prefer a prescriptive corporate structure and an in-person office environment, that’s not us. If you’re seeking hypergrowth, can solve complex problems, and can thrive on change (and a bit of chaos), you’ve found the right place. It’s time to find your role.
Everyone here wants to be the world’s best at what they do. Some people who join us are already the world’s best at something: gold-medallist, chess grandmaster, Michelin-star chef. If this is you, hit VIP access at the top to convert your skills into high-performance Shopify roles.


Over the years, we’ve found that commerce can be a force for good, that entrepreneurs drive communities forward, and that small businesses are the backbone of economies. More than that, independent businesses enable incredible change. You vote with your dollars for the things—and changes—you want to see more of in the world.
This is life-defining work that directly impacts people’s lives as much as it transforms your own. This is putting the power of the few in the hands of the many, is a future with more voices rather than fewer, and is creating more choices instead of an elite option.
We’re arming the rebels. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?


Built around a mission, not a headquarters. Office centricity is over. We are digital-first. That means you do your daily work wherever you work best, so we hire you where you are. Most of us then gather in real life several times a year to connect, solve hard problems, and align as a team. We call this way of working Digital by Design, or DxD.


Independent thinkers who seek growth. Shopify has a unique personality and approach to solving problems. It’s hard to work here if you’re not a great match, and we want to ensure those who consider applying can thrive in our unique environment.
Care deeply, but accept the bigger picture
To make commerce better for everyone, we also have to serve and support those who we may not agree with. What does it mean? You need to see the bigger picture, and sometimes leave your personal beliefs outside the room.
Constant learning, constant discomfort
Joining our team means working with the most driven crafters who pursue mastery. But growth isn’t just an opportunity, it’s an expectation. With resources to help you, you’ll be pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
Thrive, not survive, on change and chaos
We’re building products for the long-term to make Shopify a 100-year company, and that requires an unrelenting pace (the week, not the quarter). You need to be resilient to navigate ambiguity and thrive on change rather than endure it.
