Senior Support Intelligence Analyst - Remote, Canada




Shopify Support is a team of over 1500 hard-working and dedicated individuals committed to providing a high quality service that enables Merchants all over the world to fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams. Our mission is to make commerce better for everyone and we are constantly innovating how to do this more effectively. 



The Support Business Insights team is a cross-functional team that connects Shopify, its Merchants, and Support; providing insights that drive outcomes for our business. This requires a deep understanding of Shopify’s business model as well as Support’s role within it.  A strong understanding of statistical and mathematical concepts will be the glue that leads to success within the role as you uncover insights that lead to organizational change. 




As a Senior Analyst you’ll be pairing statistics and empirical research with data analytics to identify: opportunities for value-driven strategic growth, opportunities for Support to become more operationally efficient, and the value of our various services and recommended service levels.



You will work directly with executives and all levels of leadership, support tooling and infrastructure, knowledge management, workforce planning and many other teams to help map out and implement solutions that will improve our business.




You'll love this opportunity if you love solving puzzles and enjoy a high-trust environment with spirited debate (and having a great sense of humour never hurts)! You're naturally curious about technology, business and how things work, and you understand that learning is a lifelong pursuit. You thrive in an environment with high levels of autonomy and flexibility, and you navigate well within a quickly changing and often ambiguous environment. You hold yourself and your coworkers to high professional standards but also understand how to communicate those standards in a productive way. Finally, while you enjoy large scope and long-term projects, you also love scrappy and reactive firefighting. 



If this sounds like you, read on to learn more about the responsibilities and requirements of the role!

    • Review Support team processes to identify opportunities to become more efficient and effective
