We organize and interpret petabytes of data to provide solutions for our merchants and stakeholders across the organization. From pipelines and schema design to machine learning products and decision support, data science at Shopify is a diverse role with many opportunities to positively impact our success.

  • Apply specialized skills and fundamental data science methods (e.g. regression, survival analysis, segmentation, experimentation, and machine learning when needed) to inform improvements to our business

  • Design and implement end-to-end data pipelines: work closely with stakeholders to build instrumentation and define dimensional models, tables or schemas that support business processes

  • Build actionable KPIs, production-quality dashboards, informative deep dives, and scalable data products

  • Influence leadership to drive more data-informed decisions

  • Define and advance best practices within data science and product teams

Qualifications
  • 3+ years of experience as a Data scientist. Domain experience in e-commerce, marketing or SaaS would be a plus.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Information Technology, Mathematics, Computer Science or equivalent is preferred
  • Extensive experience with Python or Pyspark and software engineering fundamentals
  • Deep understanding of advanced SQL techniques, dimensional modeling and scaling ETL pipelines
  • Experience with applied statistics and quantitative modeling (e.g. regression, survival analysis, segmentation, experimentation, and machine learning when needed)
  • Demonstrated ability to translate analytical insights into clear recommendations and effectively communicate them to technical and non-technical stakeholders; Masterful data storytelling and strategic thinking
  • Strong sense of ownership and growth mindset; self-motivated and able to thrive in a remote environment
