Squad Lead (Former Employee) – Remote – 19 July 2017
Shopify has a work culture that promotes intuitive and creative thinking, a strong work ethic and an ability to be a team player. Being a guru isn't an easy job but it is a good one and there's so much support for you in that role. Being a squad lead gives a kind of autonomy while still being supported by a structure that has confidence in your decisions and helps you feel confident in those decisions too.
Shopify struggles with work life balance - while it promotes it 100% people who succed in Shopify are often the type to sacrifice that balance for work and thus an unspoken expectation has arisen that Shopify must come first above all other things.
