Fall 2021 - Content Design Internship
Shopify is now permanently remote and working towards a future that is digital by design. Learn more about what this can mean for you.
Interns at Shopify are fully integrated with their teams and the things you will work on are thoughtfully considered. If your team is working through a tough problem, so are you. If they are travelling to another city, you’ll be joining. There won’t be any latte fetching, there are no “intern projects” and you’ll have access to a wide range of perks based on your individual interests.
Mentorship will be available to you and you’ll join +7000 exceptionally bright people who are serious about personal growth and learning. We build products that support all kinds of entrepreneurs - from the one-product independent business owner to rapidly scaling brands like Allbirds. We’re also the platform for those that haven’t taken the first step toward getting started yet, and we try to level the playing field for anyone with a great idea to start and grow their business.
High trust and flexibility have always been a part of our culture, and if you’re expecting to be told exactly what to do, Shopify may not be the place for you. We don’t claim to have all the answers, and that’s why we look for independent thinkers, collaborators, and people hungry to grow alongside their team. Find out more about our past interns experiences and learn more about how we approach mentorship at Shopify.
Shopify internships are 4 and 8 month paid terms, and are open to students, co-ops, recent graduates and those early on in their development careers. The 4-month Fall Internship will run September 7th - December 17th 2021, and the 8-month Fall/Winter Internship will run September 7th - April 29th 2022.
The posting will close on Monday June 28th 2021 at 11:59PM EST and applications will not be accepted after this date. Applications will be reviewed and interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis.
We're looking for UX-focused Content Strategy Interns to help plan and create interface content for Shopify products. We’re a team of 30 content strategists and our products are used by over 1.7 million merchants every day. Our merchants rely on Shopify to provide them with the tools they need to run their business. Content Strategists work closely with UX researchers and Designers to create products that make commerce better for everyone.
The UX team starts by identifying the right problems to solve for the highest impact, then performs research, prototype solutions, and ships features (sometimes all in the same week!). This isn't a content marketing or social media role. You'll work closely with the content strategy team to learn about and push this discipline forward, while working with a project team that includes UXers, developers, and engineers, to implement solutions that directly affect our merchants and prospective merchants.
Being an intern at Shopify means you get to be impactful, and build for the long term. You'll get to work alongside full-time content strategists on projects that become real features in our software and other digital properties.
