In an effort to welcome new Shopifolk, the Montreal office features a centrally-located display that showcases new employees and a fun fact about each of them—allowing people to get to know the new workers and recognize them around the office. Montreal employees are also known to intermingle at lunch time, which helps everyone in the office form connections with people outside of their team.
Shopify’s Montreal office is designed with its team in mind. Complete with a yoga room, comfortable couches, standing desks, and a cozy lounge where Shopifolk can gather to play chess, video games, and ping-pong—or just relax and chat—the office has something for everyone. Unique to Montreal, the decor incorporates the traditional look and feel of the city, and themed conference rooms, like a Lego room, add a distinctive touch.
“I'm not rushing out of the door at 5 PM to go home. The combination of interesting projects and a great office environment makes me happy to come to work and leave when I'm satisfied with what I've accomplished that day.”
“I simply love working in the Montreal office. It's light and spacious, with lots of quiet corners to focus and cozy meeting rooms. It's lovely to hear three to four different languages at lunch time, and I enjoy that the lounge becomes a great social space after work."
