Office Coordinator

Office Coordinator

Location: Toronto

We’re looking for an Office Coordinator to join our Toronto team. If you are a master of organization, have jedi-like problem solving abilities, and are as personable as Ellen DeGeneres, then keep reading.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for someone who can help keep the Toronto office running smoothly with their super organizational skills. We want someone who is known for taking initiative, has great attention to detail, and is outgoing and friendly. You’ll be the first point of contact for anyone entering the Shopify office!

Here’s what your day might look like as Office Coordinator at Shopify:

  • Start your day with a coffee and notice that we’re running low on beans. An under-caffeinated Shopify team is not something you want to envision, so make a note to order more supplies.

  • Go back to the front desk and greet a candidate who is here for an interview. Make sure they feel welcome by offering them a drink, printing out their name tag, and notifying Michael (Toronto Recruiter) that his candidate is here.

  • Join Russell (Office Manager in Toronto) on a google hangout with the Ottawa facilities team to work out the logistics for ordering furniture and equipment for the new office.

  • A few of your colleagues are travelling next week. Get the details and assist them in booking their flights and hotels.

  • Head outside to run some errands for the office - we’re running low on office supplies and need to grab a few gift cards for new employees.

  • Zip back to the office and notice that some new computer hardware is being delivered. Help out with the delivery and notify the appropriate Shopifiers that their new equipment is here.

  • A colleague comes to your desk with a unique issue. Use your jedi-like problem solving skills to come up with a creative solution.

  • It’s almost the end of the day. Finish wrapping up any pressing items and brainstorm what’s in store for tomorrow.

If this sounds like your ideal work day, then please fill in the information below along with a video telling us why you’d be a good fit, and what your favourite place is in Toronto. (Please do not attach your video, best bet is to upload it to Vimeo or Youtube). Keep it to 2 minutes max and make sure to outline how you’d add value in this role. Only those who make a video will be seriously considered.
