Shopify for Computer Science Education
Mentoring high school students to create apps with TechU.me
Ottawa high school students participating in TechU.me learn right in their classrooms how to build apps for kids, working with grade school children as clients. In addition to Shopify mentors sharing technical knowledge, Shopify also sponsors the AppJam competition showcasing the completed apps.
Helping to demystify and diversify tech with Ladies Learning Code
Since 2011, Ladies Learning Code has been running coding workshops across Canada for women and children, helping to close the diversity gap in tech. Shopify is a proud community partner of Ladies Learning Code (including being title sponsor for National Learn to Code Day), contributing to curriculum, hosting events, and spreading awareness of the organization.
Supporting girls to solve community problems with Technovation
The Technovation Challenge is a global technology entrepreneurship program for girls, where teams build a mobile app to address local community problems. Shopify sponsors, hosts, and mentors Ottawa participants and helps provide resources they might need.
Powering our company for the long term
Education at Shopify
Education at Shopify is about creating and promoting a culture of learning and sharing. A fully-stocked library contains books that have energized the exec team. Weekly talks by Shopify employees share lessons and learnings, often work-related, but sometimes not—we’ve heard about travel epiphanies and beekeeping tips too. Hack Days happen quarterly to work on anything we want, even if it’s not related to our everyday role. And Coaches and the Talent Acceleration team provide guidance on reaching career goals.
Internships at Shopify
Shopify interns receive hands-on experience solving problems and provide meaningful impact on real projects. Across our offices in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Waterloo, interns experiment, take ownership, and pursue the things they care about—it all adds up to an awesome opportunity for growth. Check out our Internships page to learn more about upcoming opportunities.
