Jean-Philippe freelanced as a developer while completing his degree in computer science and engineering at the University of Montreal. Joining Shopify immediately after graduation, Jean-Philippe was originally one of 20 employees at the Montreal office, which now boasts over 100. He’s continually astonished by the level of trust, support, and growth he experiences there.
Having joined Shopify right after graduation, Jean-Philippe’s role has grown—he now manages a small team in his quest to constantly improve the purchasing experience for everyone. This means working on pre- and post-checkout, but most importantly, accessibility—with mobile, Facebook, Pinterest, Apple Pay, APIs for the visually impaired, and backwards-compatibility with legacy systems.
