Dana joined the Toronto team as a Recruitment Coordinator in January 2016 and we’ve been bowing down ever since. She’s the one who keeps the machine running behind the scenes, ensuring a smooth candidate experience from the very beginning. She legitimately has some form of ESP the way she delivers on things you didn’t even know you wanted/needed. Before Shopify, she worked as an agent for cinematographers and production designers. She also has bragging rights for being the only one on the team who was on set for Drake’s Hotline Bling video. We’re not that jealous…
A few fun facts about Dana: she’s amazing at wearing hats. Seriously, we have yet to see one that doesn’t suit her👒. She will demolish popcorn in a flash, so if you hit the movies, you damn well better get your own bag. She also once won a free trip to Scandinavia (there’s got to be a great story behind that one - ask her!), and was on set for a ton of McDonald’s commercials🍟. Dana is one of the most hilarious and lovely people you’ll ever meet.Dana gets you. When she started the interview process and received the “just be yourself” advice that everyone gives, she thought that it was just lip service or that folks weren’t willing to help her with actual relevant advice. Being on this side, however, she now realizes that this is the best advice anyone interviewing at Shopify can receive. We really look for people who can be themselves and we want to genuinely know the real you, so be you!
