Great company, highly recommend. Great office, work environment and coworkers. Work is interesting enough, tooling is great, lunch is great. Despite the fact that sometimes I was working on CRUD Ruby on Rails apps, I actually really enjoyed my job. The fundamentals of the work didn't seem to matter when the tools, coworkers and everything else were perfect. One thing I really liked is having the opportunity to be just a normal team member. There's little structure and no sandboxing, you get a lot of autonomy and get to basically be like any other member of your team.

I worked at Shopify in the winter and fall 2016 term. The nice thing about Shopify is that you're treated like any other full-time member. You all do work from the same pot. The culture is also amazing. They give you a lot of flexibility for what team and office you want to be in, if you ask. Also free lunch, amazing office, nice housing, etc.

If you're a UX-er or product designer, Shopify should be on your list. They (are starting to) bring in some top talent from all over the world. Literally, I've got to work with designers from Facebook and Airbnb during my time here. The design work is really starting to get noticed globally, and Shopify is one of those companies who deeply care about their design. You will come out of this co-op feeling as though you became a better designer for sure. - Lots of opportunities for growth. Your lead will take care of that for sure. - They actually give a shit about their design work - Amazing designers to talk to, lots of talent coming in - Intern housing in Ottawa is nice - Projects are super fun and there is lots of transparency so… Show More

While a solid tech company to work for overall, your experience at Shopify is largely dependent on which team you're placed on. Shopify is also a great launchpad is you're looking to coop in the states next.

Definitely one of the best places in Canada to work. Great pay, culture, and development seems pretty well run. Great opportunities for mentorship, but you may need to actively seek it out. Learned a huge amount from the various engineering talks as well as chatting with teammates.

Worked there in Fall 2017. Environment was super hyped and everyone is happy to help you with anything. Company covers your moving cost, and half of your housing. Catered breakfast and lunch are provided, and they are indeed fascinating and tasty. Good: - You'll be assigned with a mentor, and usually have a weekly checkup. - Intern retreats, and sometimes team offsite. - Good working environment where you can make a lot of friends in your field. - Pay is good. Ehhh: - Ottawa is just not for me, I felt kind of bored. But with all the interns it was not that bad. - I joined in a special time when everyone is pressured with releasing date. Do expect some overtime.

I worked for Shopify in the Ottawa office on my first co-op. Overall, it was a great experience, and it was especially exciting to be there during their 2015 IPO. Pros: - Downtown Ottawa, not Kanata - Really fun work environment - Good dev environment/tools - Zero pressure to work long hours - Meet lots of other interns - Snacks, smoothies, espresso bar - Hack Days (internal hackathon) Cons: - Culture is too hipster for my taste - Most likely only use Ruby on Rails

Worked as a front-end developer intern for Fall 2017. The people and environment are really nice and I had a great term here. You get treated like a full time member of the team rather than an intern. Nice office, catered lunches mon-thurs

Free breakfast is pastries and fruit. Free lunch is catered by local restaurants, and is usually really good. The company is really good at accommodating dietary preferences and allergies, too. The company subsidizes housing for interns - I believe they pay 50% of your rent if you're working in Ottawa, not sure if the situation is the same elsewhere. I'm only three weeks in, but really enjoying it so far. Cool problems to work on. Great coworkers and a supportive team. All interns did a three-day onboarding in Ottawa, and spent another three nights in Ottawa for the annual corporate summit (usually scheduled in January, I gather). Plenty of free clothing, if that interests you. Shopify is growing really fast, too - it seems like a great… Show More

Such a great company :) There's an intern retreat, they fly you out to Ottawa for onboarding, which is super fun, and there's Hack Days every semester. The people in the Waterloo office are lovely, can't speak for the other offices. The company culture overall is very open and I think they'll be growing a lot! Definitely worth interning for.

Great place with lots of things to do, and a lot of excitement around the product. The company is moving super quickly, so naturally there are a few growing pains here and there. Overall, the engineering team is world class and I would not hesitate to come back again.

I worked at Capco as a Software Engineering Consultant Intern from January 2018 - April 2018 in the Toronto office. I'd say that this experience was one of the best work experiences I've had so far. From a technical/educational perspective, I worked with Java Spring on the back end team. When I first started I was given the right resources to get myself set up and familiarised with the code base. My teammates were highly experienced in the field but were also very helpful and approachable. I first started off with some simple tasks, but as time progressed I got assignments that were as important as any other full time developer's. One of the best educational advantages was that I had top tier programmers reviewing my PRs and giving… Show More
