The world has changed and we're changing with it!

Although our roots are in e-commerce, we are working with many of the world's most innovative brands on the renaissance of online and in-person commerce, powered by Shopify technology.

We are looking for that exceptional someone to join our US East Regional Business Operations and Enablement team to rocketfuel and equip our merchant-facing teams with the critical knowledge and craft to successfully deliver an amazing experience for our Merchants.

This role will be in charge of designing and executing our merchant-facing/ craft programs, working cross-functionally to project manage key initiatives as well as setting the tone for what the value our Partner ecosystem brings to our merchants.

  • Identify and improve the process and operational gaps for internal teams when working with partners
  • Facilitation, workshops, and change management - support in-region delivery of programs and learnings.
  • Align with both merchant-facing teams and Partnerships teams strategic priorities in delivering programs - the right training, content, tools, processes, and communications that help the region excel.
  • Report on KPI's for in-region programs including:
    - content consumption KPIs
    - behavioural outcome KPIs
    - business performance outcome KPIs
  • Drive education and awareness of our enablement programs to key audiences including new employees, leaders, and cross-functional Global and Regional teams.
