Jenn Vanden Elzen
Double-N Jenn joined the team in March 2015 as our Campus Recruiter. She's in charge of wooing interns to come work at Shopify. Before joining the Talent Acquisition team, Jenn was working as a guide at the Juno Beach Centre in Normandy, France. Jenn is quite the world traveller, and that coupled with her tendency towards sentimentality means that she keeps a lot of mementos, mostly in the form of keychains. Her current set of keys probably weighs about 2 pounds.
Another thing you should know about Jenn is that she's a happy crier. There's a running joke on our team that Jenn is always the first to start crying and last to stop laughing.
She also has self-proclaimed "very strong vocal chords."
Pro tip: Jenn is super proud of her Dutch heritage, so if you're interviewing with her and want some extra brownie points, you might want to bring along some stroopwafels.
