This is awesome! I hope it’s a huge hit and is quickly emulated by other successful tech companies.
Dev Degree is a 4-year, work-integrated learning program that combines hands-on developer experience at Shopify with an accredited Computer Science degree from either Carleton University or York University.
Working closely with our university partners, students take three university courses on campus each term and spend ~25 hours each week at Shopify.
This is 4,500+ hours of work experience paired with 4,000+ hours of academic experience. You earn $160k in salary, tuition, & vacation AND there’s a built-in 50/50 gender parity in the program.
