Shopify is on a mission to make commerce better for everyone. Our platform currently powers over 1,700,000 businesses worldwide, with no plans of slowing down.

The team is focussed on creating and maintaining trust with our merchants through strong and personal relationships. 

Data Science plays a crucial part in achieving these goals. We organize and interpret petabytes of data to provide deep, actionable insights for our stakeholders; build out data systems that empower decision-making at scale; and provide recommendations to drive revenue, retention and product adoption in the region.
