Company Description

Shopify’s mission is to make commerce better for everyone. From building a new product feature for our commerce platform, to helping a merchant troubleshoot an issue over the phone, we want to empower our ecosystem through our work.

Having a unified vision, a north star, is vitally important to ensure that we are all headed in the same direction. No matter the size or experience, we want to power every merchant’s experience. This is why we're all here.

Shopify is now permanently remote and we're working towards a future that is digital by default. That location you see above? Consider it merely an example of hundreds of potential locations across North America where Shopify is hiring. Learn more here:

Job Description

Shopify's Dev Degree program is a computer science degree unlike any other. Our innovative work-integrated learning model provides hands-on experience across a breadth of disciplines and teams, giving you the confidence to jump-start your future. Throughout your journey, our technical mentors and support team will guide, evaluate, and provide actionable feedback, so you can confidently grow. 

What you’ll do as a Dev Degree Intern:

In your first year, you'll take three university courses and spend ~25 hours/week at Shopify. In year one, you'll focus on learning the tools and technologies that will prepare you to join Shopify development teams.

In year two and onwards, you'll continue to split your time between university and Shopify. Each term, you'll take three university courses and spend ~25 hours/week at Shopify. Throughout these years, you'll spend your time at Shopify working on a development team and learning while doing. We support your growth, so five hours of your weekly Shopify hours are dedicated to personal development.

You can learn more about life as a Dev Degree student and our approach to development and success.
