    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shopify (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    3 steps: Recruiter screen -> 2 hour life story/portfolio project -> onsite interview

    Overall a good interview process. The recruiter screen is mostly to learn about your experience and figure out what's going on at Shopify.

    In the lift story phase, you will be talking to your recruiter again about your career trajectory as well as parts of your personal life so that they can get a better feel for who you are as a person. This is a pretty general interview so if you want to prepare at all, perhaps write a couple paragraphs about what you think you've been doing with your life up to this point and read it over before the call.

    The portfolio project is also standard. You have an hour to present 1-2 projects. Be very detailed here about the problem you are solving, who it affects, why you made your decisions, what went well/didn't go well, and the results.

    The onsite is on the shorter side. You will do a 1hr whiteboard exercise with a senior designer on a generic problem. You definitely have enough time to come up with plausible solutions so be thorough in each phase of the exerciser (framing the problem, who it affects, the task flow, solution exploration).

    After this, you get lunch! Then you will have two interviews left for the day, one with a hiring manager, and one with designers to present your best portfolio projects.

    With the hiring manager, it is behavioral and focused on Shopify values. Read their values and come up with stories for how you demonstrate those traits in your past work. Be prepared to talk about conflicts working with your cross-functional teams.

    The portfolio presentation is similar to the previous part of the interview presentation. You'll make a deck and walk through your best projects. Once again, be detailed. Clearly describe your process, the problem, who is facing the problem, and every subsequent step of your solutions. Be prepared to talk about what went well and what didn't go well, what you would change, what unique things you struggled with while working on this problem.
