Watch the Intro Video from the employer!
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.
Currently, the team structure is as follows:
⇢ Ian: CEO - leads client engagements and solutions engineering. UX background with a blend of technical and creative skills, so he’s often relatively hands-on with clients' tech stacks. (Based in Boston)
⇢ Cory: Lead Shopify developer - primarily focuses on custom theme development and more complex theme logic (Based in Miami)
⇢ Jay: Delivery Manager - hybrid role of account/project manager and Shopify platform Admin work for clients (Based in Boston)
⇢ Jake: UI/UX design lead (based in Sweden)
⇢ Oliver: Jr. Shopify developer - typically handles very small Shopify tasks and basic front-end work (Based in Philippines)
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, we're 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

ABOUT THE ROLE
This role will be interacting on a daily basis with our small team. Most closely with Cory, our dev lead, Jay our account/project manager, and Jake, our design lead. The tasks assignment would be a constant work in progress internally :) Currently we use a tool called Backlog, but are transitioning to our own platform in the very near future. We'll rely on those for ticket management, but we communicate A LOT via slack.
Our new rockstar developer would evolve into an expert at all things in the Shopify ecosystem, always keeping up with the latest changes the platform is making and identifying new opportunities to improve our code. Depending on the individual, it would be helpful to take on more Shopify API and custom/headless front-end work and not strictly Shopify theme development.
Your main responsibilities as a Shopify Developer will include:
