    Shopify - “I like that we prioritize getting out to conference because I’m able to meet new people outside of those I see everyday. The people i meet are always inspiring. Plus, I get to visit other countries that are outside my radar.”
    Shopify - “I chose to join Shopify because I enjoy working on things that matter to a lot of people, and being excited to go to work every day is important to me. You get the sense that everyone here wants to contribute to Shopify in a big way.
    Shopify - “I didn’t go to school for what I’m doing now, I’m self taught.”
    Shopify - “No powerpoints - at other companies I spent weeks creating power points to pitch an idea for a project that would only take two weeks to actually do. Now, I just do that project. We take the act now, beg for forgiveness after rule pretty seriously here.”
