I want to work at Shopify because working for Shopify as a customer success guru will blend brilliantly with my lifestyle.
I love surfing, slowly, over the years it has become my ultimate passion!
The Vancouver Island surf season begins in October and I imagine myself getting up in the dark, driving to the beach, putting on my wetsuit and plunging into the frigid waters of the west coast for a surf at first light and then heading back into town and working for Shopify as a success guru in the afternoons.
I want to be able to go surfing in the morning mid week because it’s the best time to go because that’s when most of the surfers are at work.
I built a dropshipping business as a demo site for my application because I have a dream of waking up one morning on my sailboat, the creek of the sailboat, the breaking waves and the birds are the only things I hear, I log into my laptop while I drink my morning coffee and see that I did $10,000 in sales over night. I silently smile and then spend the next 4 hours surfing.
It’s the ultimate dream.
I love that Shopify’s mission is the provide wild dreams and inspired entrepreneurs with the tools to accomplish that! As a customer support guru, I would be stoked to help other dreams and entrepreneurs solve their problems and get their dreams on the fast track.
I have previous experience building WordPress websites, my disapointments with WordPress led me to learning to code. I am currently on chapter 10 of the Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl.
While setting up my demo site, I was blown away at how easy to use and seemless the Shopify experience is! Everything just works and pages load quickly. It’s really nice. If I am chosen to work for Shopify, I will take the opportunity to learn everything I can about the platform, the liquid templating language and how to build great experience.
I am currently doing a Bachelor of Commerce by correspondence at Royal Roads University in Entrepreneurial Management. I have been working on it since March 2016 and I’ve only been on campus for 15 days. I also wrote an accounting final in Yangon, Myanmar this February.
I know how to work remotely and I can get sh*t done.
My classmate Tanya has been working for Shopify as a success guru since the beginning of our program and she loves it. Her passion for Shopify has worn off onto me and now I also want to help Shopify customers succeed at making their dreams come true.
