We have a deep appreciation of everyone's perspective and encourage everyone to apply. Diversity in experience makes for the best problem-solving and creative thinking, which is why previous programming experience is not required for Dev Degree!

1. Shopify is now digital by default. The world is changing and we’re changing with it. Digital by default is about building new ways of connecting, collaborating, and building relationships- and friendships- and it’s about pulling the future forward with confidence and conviction. Learn more about what this can mean for you.
2. After your application, you'll be asked to complete a voluntary diversity survey. This is to help ensure that we are connecting with people across all dimensions of diversity. Your survey completion and information will not impact your application. Most importantly, the personal information collected in the survey will be completely anonymized and not linked to your name or application. For more information, please contact [email protected]
3. Fields such as "Current company", "Skype Username URL", "LinkedIn URL", "Github URL", and "Portfolio URL" are optional fields and not necessary to submit a complete application.
5. After completing Stage 1, you will receive an email from the Dev Degree team with a link to complete your Personal Statement and Computational Questions. (These emails are sent out on a weekly basis)
