    I have been working at Shopify full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - great growth mindset: learn, grow as fast as you can. Books, conference, training, etc: you own your own development
    - growth: growing company equal lots of opportunities to improve the platform
    - fast paced environment and hard problems with huge impact: if you like to solve problems, meaningful problems for millions of buyers and merchants this is the place to go!
    - no short term vision: we are here to build a 100 year company not make as much cash as possible. Tu are encouraged to do the right thing

    Cons

    - growth: there is no user manual and things change quickly. Lots of new people and an ever changing environment.
    - self motivated environment: no hard deadlines and there is no end to make commerce better.

    Advice to Management

    - keep the culture of openness and transparence
    - have teams présent their work more often to senior management to show your interest

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shopify.

    Interview

    Unprofessional and chaotic. They were not clear on how many stages are there, and their recruiter had to schedule 5 times one of the interviews as she didn't bother to check with the hiring manager his availability. The hiring manager didn't seem to be interested in me as a candidate and couldn't provide answers to what are the expected sale targets which seems quite bizarre.
