Course Producer, Build a Business

Shopify is on a mission to make commerce better for everyone and spread entrepreneurship across the world. One of the ways we’re doing that is with Build a Business (BAB) - our annual competition for business owners that has them compete for a chance to win an entrepreneurial experience of a lifetime. The competition has been a runaway success, but, we believe the Build a Business brand can be evolved into something much bigger. This is where you come in.

We’re looking for someone to join our Marketing and Communications team to take editorial and strategic ownership of the (yet to be created) Build a Business digital training experience. The online learning experience you produce will be guiding future BAB participants and the ecommerce empires they’re striving to create. Your mission through this new channel will be to make BAB and Shopify synonymous with entrepreneurship.

You’ll be working on:

  • Identifying new course opportunities and applying creative teaching methodologies
  • Developing a systematic approach to course and lesson development
  • Establishing partnerships with subject matter experts and course instructors
  • Guiding creative partners, both internal and external, in the creation of online courses
  • Developing course marketing strategies to increase enrollment and participation among Build-a-Business participants
  • Analyzing the business impact of the online learning you produce

You'll need to have:

  • A proven track record of building and growing digital media properties
  • At least 3 years of editorial experience, managing and setting editorial calendars, as well as managing a team of contributors, both in-house and remote
  • An understanding of effective online learning course design as well as adult learning principles
  • A passion for building big ideas, running with them and challenging the status quo. Ultimately, you’re a self-starter, someone who gets shit done, and is ready to make a big impact
