The first Shopify store was our own.

More than a decade ago we started an online store to sell snowboard equipment directly to those who loved the sport as much as us.

We could have listed our products on a number of marketplaces, but we wanted to own our brand and build relationships with our customers, along with selling our goods. Such a tool didn’t exist, so we built it for ourselves. We soon realized a number of other stores were in need of a hassle-free platform to build their retail business, and Shopify was born. Since then, it's been our mission to make commerce better for everyone.

We focus on making commerce better for everyone, so businesses can focus on what they do best: building and selling their products. Today, our merchants use our platform to manage every aspect of their business — from products to orders to customers, selling online, in retail stores, and on the go.

Introducing Shopify Logistics

We are excited to add Shopify Logistics’ open roles to the BlackTies platform!

Shopify Logistics is a newly formed division of Shopify. At Shopify Logistics, our mission is to transform the fragmented and outdated logistics industry, and build an intelligent, asset-lite network that enables any online seller to offer fast, affordable fulfillment. 

How we arrived at Shopify Logistics is different — we are violinists, economists, ex-consultants, journalists, and more.  What unites us is a bias for action, curiosity, and entrepreneurial ownership and we're looking for driven and passionate people to help make our vision a reality.

Our digital-first approach

Design your life according to what matters most to you.

Your day, your way. Maximize your creativity and impact in ways that are sustainable for you on your schedule. We allow for flexibility so people can create a healthy balance of energy throughout their day and be impactful as possible.

Our digital-first approach means you do your daily work wherever you work best, so we hire you where you are. Most of us gather in real life several times a year to connect, solve hard problems, and align as a team. We call this way of working Digital by Design, or DxD.

The opportunity to shape the future of independent business ownership is in our hands.
