    Why only Senior with 10 YOE?

    You'll find plenty of folks at that level with 2-4 YOE, mostly internal.

    Sounds like they're taking advantage of the fact that you're willing to accept this level of comp...

    This is a low ball offer, at the bottom of the pay scale for senior at Shopify in Canada, but very common for new joiners unless you're bringing in something truly special to the table.

      They did increase it to 120K after negotiation. I have heard some seniors are making 150k in base tho?

      Congrats! I don't know about $150k seniors. At this base, you're more likely to be in Staff Developer territory.

      Thanks! I guess 120k isnt that bad after all. ;) Moreover, in compensation at Shopify, I guess the value lies in its stocks
