Business Intelligence Developer

Montreal, QC

At Shopify, BI Developers work to clean, model, and analyze a wide variety of data sources. We do this to help business users make better decisions, and power data driven products. We are building a data warehouse capable of answering questions listed below (and many more we haven’t even thought of yet).

BI Developers are mainly responsible for creating and maintaining our ETLs. We’re looking for people who can understand the needs of our users throughout the business, and then manipulate raw data into a useful form to fulfill those needs.

You'll answer questions like:

  • What feature of the platform should we suggest a shop owner use now to grow their business?
  • Is our new checkout system converting customers as effectively as our old system?
  • What new verticals of shops are performing well and how can we market to them?
  • How are our support teams performing? What impact on the business do they make?

You'll need to have:

  • Experience developing software. Excel macros and statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, etc) don’t count, sadly. We code primarily in Python, but you don’t need to know it specifically
  • Passion for data analysis
  • Experience authoring SQL
  • Experience working with databases, Hadoop, and/or Spark
  • Experience interviewing and understanding a variety of business users
  • Interest in collaborating, learning, growing, and eventually mentoring junior team members

It'd be great if you have experience with:

  • Working with an ETL tool like Informatica
  • Database profiling and schema optimization experience
  • Deep software development experience
  • Software as a Service business analysis experience, familiarity with things like churn rates, long term value estimation, cost of acquisition calculation, etc
  • Tableau report authoring experience
