ABOUT US

The team at Sparky designs, builds, manages, and optimizes high-converting, highly branded eCommerce experiences. We design for brands on many platforms, but exclusively develop on Shopify at the moment.

Our customers work with us because we do high quality work and make every interaction enjoyable. Our mission is to deliver the world's most enjoyable agency experience.

We've worked with some very high profile brands such as Converse and Crocs, but we're most proud of our work with growth-stage clients who have partnered with us early and have grown very quickly. A great example is Legends.com.

Additionally, I'm proud of how we've been able to lock in our focus to Shopify and present a working model that is more efficient than other agencies. We've transitioned away from billing hourly rates and have a system that works great for ongoing optimization contracts.

Our culture is scrappy, smart, and hungry! These are our core values, which are pretty true to our team and culture:

⇢ Be sincere

⇢ Get after it

⇢ Let ideas breathe

⇢ Sweat the details

⇢ Feel things

⇢ Take chances

⇢ Make 'em laugh
