Shopify is now permanently remote and working towards a future that is digital by default. Learn more about what this can mean for you.

Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standard for how businesses of all sizes operate, market, and sell their products and services. With over 1 million merchants in more than 175 different countries, powered by the most innovative platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while constantly looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets.

Handshake is a B2B web marketplace developed by Shopify in order to make buying and selling wholesale better for every merchant. On Handshake, retailers can discover products from trustworthy suppliers for their stores and brands. The suppliers in the marketplace acquire new B2B buyers to help scale their resellers' network. With the first release in August 2020, Handshake is just gaining momentum and we are looking for a seasoned Product Manager to join and support us on this exciting journey.
