About the role
At Shopify, we build products that help entrepreneurs around the world to start and grow their businesses. We’re the world’s fastest growing commerce platform and we have no plans of slowing down. To accelerate our mission to help make commerce better for everyone, we need a strong product manager to take Start’s products to the next level.
We believe that commerce is one of the most defining avenues for entrepreneurs to reach independence, but almost everything about online commerce favours already-large existing companies. This directly impacts the thousands of new hopeful entrepreneurs sign up for Shopify without much or any business experience. The Start product line exists to supercharge aspiring entrepreneurs' abilities to become successful with the best guidance, network, and motivation possible. We'll help our 1 million global merchants and also support new ones as we rapidly grow. Entrepreneurship is a hard but rewarding experience. We want to create more entrepreneurs and make it easier than ever to start a business.
We care about growing creative, collaborative people, and strong, capable teams. Your peers in Shopify's Product Management team have diverse backgrounds, skill sets, and stories but share an established track record of delivering impactful products that merchants love. Come join us to do your life's best work!
