Shopify’s Intern Culture

While Shopify’s remote-first internships allow you to design your life around what matters to you most, we know the importance of community. From supplementary learning sessions to virtual workshops and curated in-person experiences, there’s no lack of opportunities to meet and connect with other interns.

One week, you might join a cooking class hosted by our in-house Culinary team, and the next you’re being flown to a new city for in-person development experiences and socials with your intern cohort. Your internship will have the benefit of flexibility in your day, along with the support of your community and relationships to make it about more than just the work.
