People Analytics - Data Engineer

At our core, Shopify is about people; Merchants, customers, and employees. All we do, from coding, design, engineering, and support, are human endeavours. Understanding people is tremendously important to building a company which lasts 100+ years. This is where the People Analytics comes in. We are the R&D of HR. Shopify is our lab, where we seek to understand how we can drive and build a solid people platform. A platform to nurture, drive, and enable Shopifiers to find and have meaningful impact. This is a chance to change how we work and ultimately how Shopify works.

Not every engineer + developer gets to see everyday how their products get used up close. This is your chance to build systems that will positively impact the people you work with. We are building an HR platform to collect, integrate, and analyze our data. We need to speed up how we discover and respond to trends in engagement, learning, and feedback. We are laying the foundations for a platform that will bring value to every Shopify Employee.

You'll need to have:

  • App and front-end development experience in a production environment
  • Working sysadmin knowledge
  • Experience working within AWS
  • Experience with Ruby or Golang
  • Great organizational and interpersonal skills, with proven success building relationships across all levels
  • Data analysis using Python + Pandas a plus
