    I have been working at Shopify full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to develop your career. Lots of diverse and interesting things to work on and get involved in. They are very generous with resources and creating a great employee experience.

    Cons

    Seems very hard to move up in salary compared to other companies and they seem to pay below average.

    Social Care

    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. I agree, the people I work with make my day much brighter! I'm sorry to hear you feel the work can be a little repetitive though. The more experience you get in solving problems, the easier your work can get. It's important to challenge yourself if you're feeling complacent, I'm sure if you had a chat with your team lead you could decide on some projects to guide your learning! Thanks again for the review, and for the kind words!

    I have been working at Shopify full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great growth opportunities, and opportunities to mentor and be mentored - Lots of freedom, people treat each other like adults - Fantastic culture, open and transparent, anyone can question decisions - I get to work with smart, nice people every day on interesting problems - The company really cares about getting better

    Cons

    - The experiences that gurus have seems to be very different from that of RnD/ other disciplines. - Things change quickly, you have to get used to that

    I have been working at Shopify full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I moved to Shopify after years at a FAANG company in California. I see a lot of the pros that I liked about my previous company - smart people, focus on impact, transparent and open culture, solving hard problems, etc. I also found a much much better work/life balance here and a greater emphasis on investing in employee development and learning.

    Cons

    Comp is less than you could get at FAANG companies in California, but that's a tradeoff I was okay with for much better quality of life inside and outside of work
