Jane joined Shopify in January 2016. Prior to working with us she worked for the Federal Government and volunteered with people in a variety of capacities, such as Ladies Learning Code and the Distress Centre of Ottawa and Region as a trauma counsellor. Bronwyn reached out in November 2015, to have Jane come in for an office tour and a chat with Doug, and the rest, as they say, is history. She now tackles Executive Recruiting alongside Doug.
When not trying to fill these particularly challenging roles here at Shopify, Jane can be found running the Ottawa Chapter of Ladies Learning Code with one other Shopifier. She’s a passionate advocate for the organization and her enthusiasm has helped garner a lot of external support. She also loves your dog. She also also can be seen sporting one of the best manicures around 💅. Jane gives many effs about making the things around her better - she will happily help out anyone needing support and truly embodies acting like an owner.
As for advice when interviewing, hers is en pointe: “forget everything you may have thought you knew about interviews before you come in! (think: Men in Black Neuralyzer 👽 )”.
