Because Shopify recognizes that everyone works in different ways, the office is built for diversity. The company headquarters are furnished with a games room, quiet nooks and work areas, big meeting spaces, and a yoga studio, among other features. Scheduled events throughout the week provide opportunities for co-workers to build rapport, and Shopify employees appreciate the freedom to pick the projects they want to work on.
Shopify emphasizes the value of mentorship in the workplace and also encourages collaborative work among employees by using open source software. Shopify encourages everyone to own their professional development and provides opportunities for employees to take courses and attend conferences, like Berlin's Beyond Tellerand for designers. The company also offers new hires relocation assistance to build a globally diverse team.
