Shopify is continuing to grow its Waterloo presence, with plans to grow with 300 to 500 new jobs.

“We initially chose to build Shopify’s presence in Waterloo because we knew we would be supported by the tech community in the region,” said Loren Padelford, general manager and VP of Shopify Plus. “With that support, along with world-class local talent, our growth has outpaced our expectations and projections. By continuing to invest in the region, we are helping build a stronger ecosystem, one that employs great local people, and also brings new talent to the region.”

The new positions in Waterloo will focus on growing Shopify Plus, which is dedicated to supporting the company’s enterprise customers. The company is looking for entry-level to senior manager-level roles in engineering, product, UX, sales, and merchant services.

Shopify first set its footprint in Waterloo in September 2016, when it opened its first office and acquired a Waterloo-based company to support Shopify Plus.

Shopify also announced the opening of their second building in Waterloo at 85 Willis Way. The second office is expected to open in the first quarter 2018.
