Guru (Remote)

Guru (Remote)

Location: Kingston, Ontario

Hey, Kingston, you gave us your best the very first time we knocked on your door. So we're at it again, looking for some more great people to join the Kingston group of Remote Gurus.

The guru team at Shopify supports shop owners around the clock.
We're looking for some more talented people to join our existing remote Guru team in Kingston full or part time.

So, what is a Shopify Guru exactly? Gurus can build an online store with both eyes closed and a backwards keyboard. That's how amazing they know the ins and outs of creating an Shopify store. You'll help Shopify customers get their online shops up and running. With close to 90,000+ Shopify stores worldwide, and 4,000 being launched every month, we are looking to bring on another crew in Kingston right away!

What are we looking for right now?

  • You're an internet wizard and have experience working on cloud based platforms. This includes social media.
  • You're the Sherlock of 2014. You're able to find the best resources to share with customers so they can be successful.
  • You're a warrior. You have a thick skin and your writing skills make Mark Twain envious.
  • You can type like a mad man and have at least 20 hours a week to devote to this role.
  • You've had a customer service role you love and you're all about helping people.

How does this work?

  • Your time will be spent emailing shop owners and helping them be successful using Shopify. It is possible that you will be working on our other support channels as time goes on.
  • Flexible hours, you manage your own time. Expect 20-40 hours per week on your own schedule.
  • Work remotely! Coffee Shop, Patio, the comfort of your dreamy sofa.
  • Constant contact with your team lead to help you grow and develop.
  • Flexible Vacation
  • Perks like an annual fitness allowance, professional development and a MacBook Air to do your awesome work.

Where do I sign up?

  • Send us a unique cover letter. No doubt we'll fall asleep at the sight of "I'm looking for part time employment in a dynamic work environment that will continue to utilize my creative skills" as would our customers. We want to know about you!
  • Show us how you understand the internet and show us how you're going to be a killer Guru (hard work - thick skin - sense of humour)
  • Tell us why you want to work in Kingston and why remote work is best for you.
  • Tell us about your time spent trying out or using the Shopify platform. As a Guru, it is really important to have built a store.
