Position Information

Executive Briefing Program, Senior Lead

About Shopify

Opportunity is not evenly distributed. Shopify puts independence within reach for anyone with a dream to start a business. Since 2006, we’ve grown to over 10,000 employees and generated over $496 billion in sales for millions of merchants in 175 countries. Every 28 seconds, an entrepreneur on Shopify makes their first sale.

This is life-defining work that directly impacts people’s lives as much as it transforms your own. This is putting the power of the few in the hands of the many, is a future with more voices rather than fewer, and is creating more choices instead of an elite option.

About you

Moving at our pace brings a lot of change, complexity, and ambiguity—and a little bit of chaos. Shopifolk thrive on that and are comfortable being uncomfortable. That means Shopify is not the right place for everyone.

Before you apply, consider if you can:

  • Care deeply about what you do and about making commerce better for everyone
  • Excel by seeking professional and personal hypergrowth
  • Keep up with an unrelenting pace (the week, not the quarter)
  • Be resilient and resourceful in face of ambiguity and thrive on (rather than endure) change
  • Bring critical thought and opinion
  • Embrace differences and disagreement to get shit done and move forward
  • Work digital-first for your daily work

  • Establish Feedback Loops: Become an expert in understanding customer needs and industry dynamics, and create internal feedback loops that influence product strategy and sales priorities.
  • Build a framework to measure and share impact: Use data to evolve the program and content strategy for improved performance. Build systems for sharing performance metrics across the organization to highlight the value of the program.


  • Experience in developing, executing, and leading executive briefing programs, ideally in a B2B technology environment
  • Strong organizational and project management skills, with the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and meet deadlines
  • An eye for details and knowing how to build a bespoke experience based on customer needs
