Sophia joined the TA team in June 2015, working with the awesome folks at our Toronto office. She's mostly focused on hiring for Design roles these days. Before joining Shopify, she actually spent some time as a designer herself before realizing that people are her passion and switching into the recruiting biz. She worked as a recruiter for Just Energy and Options Consulting Solutions before we nabbed her for the TA team.
Some fun facts about Sophia are that she grew up in Dubai, she's fluent in Arabic, and she's terrified of public speaking thanks to a particularly horrible experience with a public speaking course (we feel her pain). Some would also say that she bears an uncanny resemblance to the newest OITNB cast member, the gorgeous and talented Ruby Rose.
Another thing you should know about Sophia is that she's the most attentive and engaged listener you will ever meet. Her advice for interviewing with her is to showcase your warmth and passion.
