Xbox 360-style 'Achievement' graphic: Achievement Unlocked: Completed three-month probationary period as Shopify's Platform Evangelist.

My first day at Shopify was three months ago today. Since I have performed in my role as Shopify’s Platform Evangelist with skill, capability and panache and without any sausage-related mishaps, I have passed the traditional three-month probationary period and now a full-fledged employee of The Little Ecommerce Startup That Could.

I’d like to congratulate my coworker and teammate David Underwood, who also passed his three-month probationary period today.

I have no idea if I’m going to just get a simple handshake or if there’s some kind of sadistic “equator-crossing” ceremony involved. There will definitely be drinks!

One reply on “In Like Flynn”

I assumed there’d be a ceremony which consists of several tasks:

1. Crossing the Desert (the new employee has to walk between to lines of Shopify employees, everyone paddles his rear end with a bat)
2. The Unblinking Eye (the new employee has to walk between to lines of Shopify employees, everyone paddles his rear end with a bat)
3. The Wreck of Hesperus (the new employee has to walk between to lines of Shopify employees, everyone paddles his rear end with a bat)
4. The Paddling of the Swollen Ass …, with Paddles (speaks for itself).
