Retail Sales Executive

Toronto, Canada
GTM – Sales
Shopify knows first hand that Retail isn’t dead. Although our roots are in e-commerce, we are working with many of the world’s most innovative brands on the renaissance of in-person commerce, powered by Shopify technology.

Our growing team of Retail Sales Executives works directly with brands to develop their in-person commerce strategies — whether that is starting or expanding their brick & mortar operations, adopting in-store tech (like Shopify POS) that accelerates growth or supporting a temporary retail pop-up. We are merchant obsessed and driven in our goal to see entrepreneurs and brands selling in real life succeed!
