Manager IT Audit

Remote (United States)

Opportunity is not evenly distributed. Shopify puts independence within reach for anyone with a dream to start a business. We propel entrepreneurs and enterprises to scale the heights of their potential. Since 2006, we’ve grown to 10,000 employees and generated over $496 billion in sales for millions of merchants in 175 countries. 

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.

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

We are seeking a dynamic technical expert capable of managing projects, solving complex problems, simplifying solutions, and inspiring and upskilling the team. The role focuses on evaluating Shopify's risk management for their advanced IT systems, offering a unique opportunity to work in a flexible audit environment where expertise, innovation, and unconventional approaches are highly valued.

  • Hands-on experience building data analytics and reporting solutions in SQL and one of or both of Python or R in the context of assurance and advisory projects
  • Experience evaluating IT, security and application controls in the context of a compliance program for a company of similar size and complexity of Shopify.
