About the role

Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standard for how companies of all sizes sell their products and services online and off. With 1,000,000+ merchants in more than 175 different countries, and the most innovative platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while constantly looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets.

Yes, you read that right - in this time of Covid-19, Shopify is still hiring. We're definitely open for business, and we're fighting hard to keep hundreds of thousands of other businesses open as well. If that sounds like something you could get behind, keep reading.

We’re looking to add a Senior Treasury Analyst who is currently located in an Eastern Time (EST/EDT) location to our Ottawa-based Treasury team. Reporting to a Treasury Manager, we’re looking for someone who will bring passion, business acumen, and a get-it-done attitude to the table. You would be powering Shopify’s foreign exchange hedging, insurance programs, and treasury business system improvements to drive outstanding results.

The Shopify Treasury Operations team sits in the centre of the finance organization, linking together different functional groups both strategically and operationally. This person will act as one of the primary sources of context for the team to drive treasury decision-making, support the business in pursuit of growth, and ultimately help our merchants succeed.

Who are we?  

Finance at Shopify is a great place to hone your technical skills and get exposure to the Shopify product, inside and out. The team has grown from 7 members to over 100  in the last 5 years. In that time, the company has successfully completed an IPO, multiple follow on equity offerings, closed several acquisitions resulting in entities around the world, and completed its first year SOX audit. In addition to this, the team has provided more than $1 billion USD in funding to merchants in 3 different countries via Shopify Capital.
