Senior Business Analyst

Shopify is a fast-growing commerce company currently powering over 500,000 stores in more than 175 different countries. Merchants use our software to power their business across multiple sales channels, including web, tablet and mobile storefronts, through social media and marketplaces, and in their brick-and-mortar and pop-up shops. We also support a highly engaged partner community that help drive merchant success through apps, themes, integration, set up, design, development, and marketing. As Shopify continues to expand globally and the volume of our transactions increases, we’re looking to add a Senior Business Analyst to our finance team in Waterloo. You will be working closely with the Shopify Plus team to provide business support as a dedicated finance partner, and you will also support the VP of Partnerships.

You will need to have:

  • 3-4 years experience working in a finance/business support role in a fast-paced environment
  • A professional accounting designation (CA, CMA, CGA, or CPA) or MBA
  • A solid understanding of financial modelling and forecasting concepts
  • Experience working with SQL
  • A proven ability of both building detailed, ground up frameworks as well as “seeing the forest through the trees”
  • A willingness to get your hands dirty and help out where needed
  • The ability to multi-task, work under pressure, meet deadlines, and thrive in a fast-moving, sometimes chaotic work environment
  • An extremely detail-oriented nature with a passion for problem solving

It would be great if you have:

  • A commerce or business degree
  • An understanding of partnerships in a SaaS environment
  • Experience in the hi-tech industry

You will be working on things like:

  • Collaborating with different team leads to help business units better understand their metrics and financial implications
  • Bridge Finance into the rest of the business, including Operations, R&D, Support, and Business Development
  • Analyze business metrics and create monthly reports for business units
  • Work on forward-thinking special projects
