Who are we?

The Shopify platform hosts over 325,000 active online stores around the world, ranging from shops run by small entrepreneurs, to big names like Tesla Motors, Herschel, and the LA Lakers. We want to make commerce better for everyone and we’re helping thousands of merchants achieve their dream of running a successful business! 🎉

Shopify is the largest Rails application in the world and we're a big part of the Rails community. We've released lots of open source projects, such as ActiveMerchant, Dashing, Liquid, and a host of other gems used by Rails developers around the world.🌍 We're renowned for our gorgeous UI, our customizable templating system, and our developer API and ecosystem, including our own App and Theme Stores. You can learn more about what our teams are up to on our Eng blog!

Who are we looking for?

Schooling and years of experience are not a requirement here at Shopify. We feel that the best way to learn is not always in the typical classroom, but through practical experience, hard work, and passion.💚 If you love challenging yourself with projects, hacking just for fun or learning new languages and development techniques, then keep reading!

Life at Shopify

If you do, tell us about it in a note or your cover letter. You can address it to Darlene (emojis encouraged).
