Shopify’s mission is to make commerce better for everyone. From building a new product feature for our commerce platform, to helping a merchant troubleshoot an issue over the phone, we want to empower our ecosystem through our work.
Having a unified vision, a north star, is vitally important to ensure that we are all headed in the same direction. No matter the size or experience, we want to power every merchant’s experience. This is why we’re all here.
Shopify is now permanently remote, and we’re working towards a future that is digital by design. That location you see above? Consider it merely an example of hundreds of potential locations across Canada where Shopify is hiring. Learn more here: https://www.shopify.com/careers/work-anywhere
About the role
Note: We are currently hiring people from all over Canada for this role, not just Calgary! If you currently reside in Canada then you're eligible to apply.
Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standard for how companies of all sizes sell their products and services online and offline. With 2 million merchants in more than 175 different countries and the most innovative platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while constantly looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets. Our support team provides the best business guidance, so merchants have the confidence to grow and develop their business and livelihoods.
As a Junior Support Advisor, you will help Shopify merchants start, adapt, and grow their businesses. You will play a crucial role in making the above a reality for our merchants every single day. This work is incredibly rewarding and equally challenging. Our merchants have amazing stories filled with highs and lows, frustrations, and triumphs. It is in these moments and many in between that you will have the opportunity to make an impact.
All Junior Support Advisors will go through an intensive 5-6 week onboarding program where they will learn the ins and outs of ecommerce, the digital economy and what creates a successful business online. After this intensive training our Junior Support Advisors will work directly with businesses to provide guidance in their move to digital and beyond.
Your journey as a JSA at Shopify will begin with a 5 month contract with the possibility of an additional 4 month contract. After completing the contracts, a successful JSA will then transition into a permanent role within the Shopify Support org and beyond. This role will be 40 hours a week on a rotating schedule. To better understand what that means please read through this doc.
Through our program, we’re specifically prioritizing the hiring of groups who face unique barriers to entry into the Canadian workforce.
