Backend Developer Intern (also includes roles in Security) – Summer 2020 - Shopify
We’re looking for backend developers with a passion for solving tough problems with performant code.
- Candidates that move beyond the initial application stage will be invited to a “Life Story” interview with a Recruiter on the Intern Program team. The intention of the Life Story interview is to construct your own personal timeline, including decisions you’ve made, what you’re passionate about, and the path you’ve taken to bring you to where you are today.
- After the Life Story, successful candidates will be invited to a 60 minute technical interview with 2 Shopify developers. You will be informed in advance of the interview of what you need to bring. Generally, we ask that candidates bring a project with them they can present to our interviewers, and specifically something that includes code they have written personally (ideally not a group project). In the event that candidates don’t have a project, then we ask that they complete a coding challenge before the technical interview. The second half of the interview is a collaborative problem solving exercise with our developers.
- After the technical interview, successful candidates are placed on teams based on their interests, skills and experience- each placement is done individually and with significant consideration.
- Timelines of decision will be clearly communicated to candidates by their Recruiter throughout the process and you will always hear back from us. #noghosting
