I have been working at Shopify full-time (Less than a year)
I moved to Shopify after years at a FAANG company in California. I see a lot of the pros that I liked about my previous company - smart people, focus on impact, transparent and open culture, solving hard problems, etc.
I also found a much much better work/life balance here and a greater emphasis on investing in employee development and learning.
Comp is less than you could get at FAANG companies in California, but that's a tradeoff I was okay with for much better quality of life inside and outside of work
I applied online. I interviewed at Shopify (Ottawa, ON).
Exactly what they advertise it as, first interview is mainly just asking life style questions, nothing really technical unless you lead the conversation that way. This is alright if the interviewer its talkative. It can be very misleading though, it always seems like it goes well but the offer still may not come.
