As an intern at Shopify, you will be fully integrated into your team. In addition, mentorship will be available as you join 7000+ people who are serious about personal growth and learning.
We value high trust and flexibility (it’s always been a part of our culture) and if you’re expecting to be told exactly what to do, Shopify may not be the place for you. We don’t claim to have all the answers, and that’s why we look for independent thinkers, collaborators, and people hungry to grow alongside their team. Find out more about our past interns experiences, watch our Intern Diaries video, and learn more about how we approach mentorship at Shopify. We were also selected as one of WayUp’s Top 100 Intern Employers!
We’re looking for Backend Developers with a passion for solving tough problems with performant code. Shopify is the largest Rails application in the world, we're a big part of the Rails community, and we’re constantly improving our codebase to make it even better. We ship on quality instead of on time, our teams deploy new code many times a day, and our production scale is massive (we’re talking well over a million online stores, and hundreds of millions of requests a day)! Thousands of entrepreneurs will see your work within seconds – a difficult but incredibly rewarding responsibility.
Shopify internships are 3-month, 4-month, or 8-month paid terms, and are open to students, co-ops, recent graduates, and those in the early stage of their engineering/development careers. The summer internships will start in May or June* 2022.
