Benefit Specialist (New locations added)!

At Shopify, our approach to providing benefits differs from many companies out there. We strive to provide flexible and inclusive benefits and perks that represent and encourage an employee's holistic self while also having strong intent behind them. We like to be data informed, but not data driven, and as we grow globally we want to incorporate a consistent approach across all of our programs while also aligning to not only Shopify’s culture, but the culture in the market within which we operate.

Here’s an article that shows some of our offerings and how we approach them:

As a Benefit Specialist, you will be part of our People Ops team and will contribute by helping grow, execute and administer our programs.
