Our Homepage says it all: Expect Excellence.
We specialize in all things eCommerce, and pride ourselves on building top-tier WooCommerce extensions, Shopify apps, and custom eCommerce software. We’re the leading WooCommerce development team with over 60 extensions available, our Shopify portfolio has some of the highest ratings in the app store, and Jilt, our cart abandonment app, has recovered over $17 million in lost sales for merchants.
Meet the Team
Max is one of our co-founders, and has been taking apart and re-building computers since age 9 (not always successfully). Max splits his time between being a lead developer, CEO, and minister of silly walks.
Justin is our other co-founder, and has loved technology since starting to play Kings Quest on his Macintosh LC II and program games in HyperCard. Justin leads our technical direction as CTO and is our resident overengineer.
Beka handles operations, product roadmaps, and development for our WooCommerce products. She Sell with WP, a site we sponsor about WordPress eCommerce, and is often found singing along to music without realizing it.
Emily is the leader of our ShopStorm team. She’s in charge of all things Shopify at SkyVerge, driving marketing, product roadmaps, and client services, all while ensuring the team is up-to-date on hockey scores.
Chase works primarily on WooCommerce development and top-tier plugin support. He’s found doing everything from building new plugins and squashing existing bugs to educating the team on movies and homebrewing.
Maggie is our Rails and NodeJS engineer devoted to maintaining and improving our Shopify apps. Not only does she strengthen the Canuck contingent for SkyVerge, she literally wrote the book on teaching others to code for HTML.
Illimar is our internationalization expert and resident rockstar. He focuses most of his time on new plugin development, rewrites, and feature additions. When he’s not keyboard-punching, he’s enjoying a sauna in the at the edge of the Artic circle.
Dani is our human GitHub-issue-wrecking-ball, and spends the majority of his time improving Jilt and working with merchants to drive more revenue. He currently resides in Scotland speaking the Queen’s Spanglish.
Lucas splits his time between developing updates or new features for our Shopify apps and making improvements to Jilt. When he’s not tearing through GitHub issues, he’s enjoying the outdoors on the Big Island.
Ryan is our Shopify support lead, hockey fan, and real, live musician (seriously, he actually has an album on iTunes!). He delivers first-rate solutions and customer service for our Shopify merchants from Canada.
Hannes is a Shopify Engineer, email expert, and coffee aficionado. When he’s not enjoying a swim in the South African heat, he’s found maintaining and adding features to our Shopify apps along with doing top-tier support.
Product Marketing Manager
Thaoly leads marketing efforts with team SkyVerge, from content to partnerships and advertising. Her talents include sales funnel analysis and naming every worthwhile farmers’ market in the greater LA area.
Fulvio is our international man of code. He devotes a lot of his time as a WordPress engineer to improving WooCommerce Memberships, but has a hand (okay and maybe some feet) in other plugin development and support.
Tamara is a WordPress Engineer focused on WooCommerce support and fixes. She’s commonly found leading support, squashing bugs, adding features, and battling white walkers in the frigid Canadian north.
Customer Support Specialist
Ian‘s knack for conflict-hunting helps him deliver front-line support for our plugins and apps. He’s commonly found enjoying pizza, listening to podcasts while watching his kids play sports, or running…obviously, so he can enjoy more pizza.
In the time between coffee-brewing and toddler-wrangling, Jonathan adds feature improvements to and squashes bugs in Jilt. When he’s not work-coding, he’s most often found fun-coding 🙂
Kim is our part-time customer happiness guru. She handles tier 1 product support, customer inquiries, and tracks feature requests for our Shopify apps.
Jai is a part-time writer frequently found in our ShopStorm and Sell with WP blogs, where he’s happy to help with how to articles & shop tips.
