    Great Culture; Sometimes Incremental Work

    Pros

    The human focused culture at Shopify is second-to-none in Canada, in my opinion.

    Cons

    The work that I was doing was relatively incremental and I had to zoom out pretty far in order to understand how it might impact real people which is why I chose not to pursue fulltime.

    Pros

    Most people are nice and friendly to work with which makes the job bearable. Really brilliant folks in some corners of the company that are smart and inspiring. We get some remote benefits but not a lot for a remote company.

    Cons

    Mass exodus of folks who have been here for 3-10 years ever since fall of last year.

They know when it’s gone. Be prepared for constantly changing teams and management structures. No UX Researchers, every team has to do their own research and you can imagine how that is going. Product researchers do research for product directors and not for teams.
