Brady Paron

 

Bradster joined Shopify in November 2014 as a recruiter in the 6 (aka Toronto) with Michael Cleyn and Sophia, where together they are helping to grow the growth team. He currently hires for Dev and Marketing roles out of the Toronto office. Prior to Shopify, Brady was working on the organizing committee for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games in a Marketing Role. More specifically, he was helping to coordinate the mascot program for PACHI, the 41-quilled porcupine (who visited over 300 schools in one year). Before that he worked at lululemon athletica, spent 2 years teaching English in South Korea, and also managed an organic bakery and cafe.

Some fun facts about Brady are that he is environmentally conscious (he's saving the environment one water bottle at a time), he’s working on a Master’s degree in Environment and Business, and is passionate about sustainability in technology and the live music industry. 

Bradster has an extremely contagious positive energy. Just being around him will put you in an upbeat mood. Another thing about Brady is that when you meet him, you immediately feel like you’re old friends. He has a way of making people feel really comfortable and at ease around him.

Brady's advice for interviewing with him is don't try to be someone you're not. Enjoy the experience, and be honest. He likes people who aren't afraid to admit when something didn't go well, and why, and how they learned from it.
