Shopify - Why Work With Us?

The first Shopify store was our own.

More than a decade ago we started an online store to sell snowboard equipment directly to those who loved the sport as much as us.

We could have listed our products on a number of marketplaces, but we wanted to own our brand and build relationships with our customers, along with selling our goods. Such a tool didn’t exist, so we built it for ourselves. We soon realized a number of other stores were in need of a hassle-free platform to build their retail business, and Shopify was born. Since then, it's been our mission to make commerce better for everyone.

We focus on making commerce better for everyone, so businesses can focus on what they do best: building and selling their products. Today, our merchants use our platform to manage every aspect of their business — from products to orders to customers, selling online, in retail stores, and on the go.

The opportunity to shape the future of independent business ownership is in our hands.

    Staff Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portugal
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shopify (Portugal)


    I've applied for a role over a month ago and got feedback from Shopify for an introduction pretty soon. This meeting was booked for the first time with HR 2 weeks later. On the day, the recruiter cancelled and I was asked to book again. I checked the available slots and again, I had to wait, at least, 2 more weeks for the next available time. I asked the recruiter if it would be possible to have a chat sooner and I was told to follow the calendar. After booking the second time and waiting more 2 weeks, I got again the same message cancelling the meeting, (and again!) on the day. I won't book the third time when this process has already shown poor professionalism.

    No questions asked, the introduction never happened.
