I live in Montreal and had an initial interview with the Montreal office several months ago. I was looking for flexible work, specifically the ability to work remotely. I was told it was not really an option, and that I would be required to work in the office most of the time. As a result, it didn't work out for me. I see that you are listing remote work as a possibility. Has your policy changed in that regard?

There are a select few remote positions, in R&D thats mainly in the Data Stores team. Customer support and Merchant Success have remote positions too.

Do you have any opening for Product manager? Looking for a PM role (see my profile https://www.linkedin.com/in/seekgk/)

I'm an international student in US, currently looking for a Fall Internship - are you aware if Shopify provides visa assistance to interns or if there is a Fall/Winter program?

We sure do, its harder for some countries vs others due to regulations.

Here's the fall internship position https://jobs.lever.co/shopify/af6eb818-fe8b-433c-ba5b-d198ef...

winter positions will be posted shortly.

We work with interns to figure out what exact department they will finally land in through the interview process.

Will there be internships in SF during Fall/Winter?

Former intern here: they don't do SF internships as far as I know. The office is made of <10 engineers and can't support an internship program.

For now all the internships are in Canada, but we pay for relocation and housing during the course of the internship.
