Job Description

If you are applying from outside the Shopify careers page, please apply through our early careers page ( to ensure you are completing all application components.

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!

Our Data Scientists come from diverse backgrounds: computer science, business, economics, and physics to name a few! We are solving diverse problems in the business and appreciate diverse perspectives. Our product direction is data driven and we’re all working toward one common goal: make commerce better for everyone.

The Data Science & Engineering team acts as the impact multiplier for Shopify’s product teams, putting over 11 petabytes of retail data to work to make our merchants more successful. You’ll make an impact on delivering merchandising insights, optimizing shipping and processing rates, reducing credit card fraud, ad campaign recommendations, and more!

As someone who thrives in a rapidly changing environment, you will develop a deep understanding of our data, tools, and processes by measuring key metrics, promoting new analytical techniques and questioning assumptions. You love to tell the story behind the numbers, and will clean, model, and analyze a wide variety of data sources.

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. Fall internships will start on September 12th, 2022. 

This posting will close on Monday, June 13th, 2022 at 11:59PM EST. Applications will be reviewed and interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis. Applications will not be accepted after the deadline.
