Excellent work environment with room for growth
Squad Lead (Former Employee) –  Remote19 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.

Good place to work at
Software Developer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON31 January 2017
It was a good place to work at. There aren't really any major expectations to work excessive hours, however people who do are often the ones who get rewarded the most.

Work life balance is strongly encouraged, but failure have that isn't necessarily frowned upon.

It's probably the best software employer in Canada.
Pros
Diverse Teams, Travel Opportunities, Growth Opportunities
Cons
Lots of meetings/time sinks, visual distractions are common
