Kimberly (or Kim as she is known around these parts) joined the TA team as a Recruiter in January 2016. This former Torontonian has been a part of the team even before she was officially part of the team: she came to Anna’s aid with marketing and social media help for her Shopify store, Caged Collective. She also got to attend the Shopify holiday party before her start date - lucky duck👗! Before we made it official, Kim was working as a Corporate Sponsorships Coordinator for the Sens🏒.
So, Kim is basically a mermaid🐬. She’s been a swimmer for most of her life, even swimming competitively for many years. Despite her digits being near permanently prune-y, she has an irrational fear of open bodies of water 🌊 😨 . Kim can also give the most accurate and brilliant accounts of reality tv relationship trees🌳. There is a surprising amount of complexity that many of us were not aware of AND these shows are a great study in people. Hit her up, she’ll give you the deets. Finally, her closet is *amazing*!
Kim is one of those people who is always ready to jump into a project and help out. She has the biggest heart and she wears it proudly on her sleeve💝. We love that about her. She is the living embodiment of TGIM, loving the impact she can have on the face of commerce through hiring amazing folks. When it comes to interviewing, she implores people to be themselves! She wants to talk to the REAL you, not an interview version of you. Also, it’s a really good idea to do some research into what Shopify is working on before showing up (pro tip).
