    I have been working at Shopify full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's minimal process and things are really up to your team on how you work. That sentiment is propagated from leadership down as well, to make sure that process doesn't get in the way of writing code quickly and efficiently. The ability to transition into different roles when you feel that you've stagnated in yours or see another interesting opportunity is also great, since you still feel incentivized to stay at the company due to the great culture and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's difficult to unhinge from work since there is a lot going on at once, and being permanent work-from-home introduces challenges around growth and connection with your team. All solveable things, but a challenge none-the-less.

    Shopify is an amazing company to work at especially if you values fit with the company values!! They have tons of ressources for you to grow your skills and learn. They truly care about of their employees which is amazing.

    Being 100% remote can also be a con for some people who rely on being present in a workplace to build work relations.
