Shopify to Triple Waterloo Workforce, Deepening Investment in Canada’s Thriving Tech Community

OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Since 2014, Shopify Inc. (NYSE:SHOP) (TSX: SHOP), the leading multi-channel commerce platform, has been steadily building its presence in Waterloo, the cornerstone of Canada’s technology Corridor. Today, the company announced that it plans to grow its full-time, Waterloo-based workforce by 300-500 new jobs over the next couple of years.

“We initially chose to build Shopify’s presence in Waterloo because we knew we would be supported by the tech community in the region,” said Loren Padelford, General Manager and Vice President of Shopify Plus. “With that support, along with world-class local talent, our growth has outpaced our expectations and projections. By continuing to invest in the region, we are helping build a stronger ecosystem, one that employs great local people, and also brings new talent to the region.”

These new positions in Waterloo will focus on growing Shopify Plus, which supports the largest and most complex customers on the Shopify platform. Roles in engineering, product, UX, sales, and merchant services will range from entry-level to senior manager-level, and all will focus on developing innovative solutions capable of scaling for the changing retail landscape.
