My visit at Shopify – 6th trade officially completed

23 06 2011

Today was the big day where I got the chance to visit Shopify‘s head quarter in Ottawa’s Byward Market to finalize my sixth trade to officially seal the deal.

I was greeted by Marketing Manager Mark Hayes and felt completely welcomed. After a quick tour of the office… I have to say that this place looks like an awesome place to work! The open concept office space is absolutely gorgeous. Working at Shopify also has lots of perks – but here are the ones that I witnessed first hand:

– Relaxed but focused atmosphere
– Everyone is equipped with the latest Mac hardware
– Plenty of Nerf and squirt guns around the office… Not sure what they’re for! 🙂
– Need a mental break? Play some PS3 or Xbox360: Walked into a Street Fighter tournament (pic in the slideshow)
– Get your day started off right: Breakfast club with a wide selection of cereal (pic in the slideshow)

I also got to see all the different teams that make up Shopify – The executives, developers, support team and the Shopify gurus. They seem to work extremely well together. No wonder they have been named the fastest growing company in Ottawa two years in a row!

So thanks Mark and Shopify for the amazing trade and the great tour of your office!

Know someone that needs a fully featured online store, or you need one of your own? Head over to my Swapsity portal if your interested in making me an offer for the 12 month enterprise package from Shopify. The specs for the store can be found here and examples of the sites you can build with the software here. You may also want to test the service out with the free, no obligation 30 day trial. If you like the service – you may send me an offer and if I accept, Shopify will apply the 12 month package to your account! It’s that easy!
