About the role
Shopify is on a fast-moving mission to make the best products for merchants around the globe. At Shopify Plus, our merchants are some of the biggest and fastest growing businesses in history. The problems we solve are as complex as the stakes are high. Ecobee, Rebecca Minkoff, Nestle, Budweiser, and Leesa are all merchants that have seen the value Shopify Plus brings to their businesses through our understanding of commerce at scale.
Shopify Plus is looking for a Product Director to join our team at Shopify Plus in Waterloo. As our merchants scale and grow, so does the complexity of their business operations.
