Shopify: Drive positive change. You’re on the ground in Moreland. Our development teams are in Canada. Your job here is to influence change on a network-level. How can we develop a better product in Canada for everyone, based on what you’re seeing in Moreland.

  • Point out areas for improvement, including opportunities for product adoption and implementing new Shopify features
  • Triage technical issues to Shopify’s escalated Support teams

Qualifications

  • Must live in the Moreland, GA area or be willing to relocate to the area

  • Experience in various warehouse functions (i.e. inbound, outbound, returns, VAS, etc)
  • Data driven approach to managing operations performance
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and a relentless attention to detail
  • Experience working with multiple stakeholders. Relationship management is your secret weapon.
  • Understanding of E-commerce best practices. You’ll be the merchant’s main point of contact for all big-picture support.
  • Knowledge of the E-commerce ecosystem. There are many moving parts and you need to see how they fit together.

Bonus experience:

  • Experience running your own business. You know what it means to be an entrepreneur and can share your learnings with our merchants.
  • Exposure to fulfillment industry best practices (Barcoding, EDI, system integrations, etc.)
