Why Apply?

We create deceptively simple apps with solid, difficult to replicate tech under the hood

We built one of the first apps for Shopify. It solved the tough problem of taking a technical analysis of a shop's code and explaining it to non-technical users.

UX and customer service is at the heart of what we do. Founded by an engineer, we also look to solve hard technical problems to build apps others can't.

Recently we added a templating engine to Plug in SEO, allowing shop owners to use the full range of Liquid variables and filters. Other apps offer just a couple.

Plug in Speed is the first minifier app for Shopify. We researched and developed unique technology to make this minification happen just-in-time. Other apps break key Shopify features like theme settings and require manual or scheduled runs.

Currently in the works we have a unique solution to the problem many shop owners have with understanding who, when and what changes are made to their theme. It's based on git and again has solid tech under the hood exposed with UX that's deceptively simple.

Working at Plug in Useful as an engineer gives you the opportunity to work on problems like this with a small and very experienced team who care about what they make.

Our Team

Learn and grow by working with each of our experienced team

We've been in the Shopify ecosystem as a partner from the early days, following their growth. And we've been working in e-commerce for even longer, helping small shop owners up to consulting for FTSE-100 online retailers.

We're experienced software developed, project managers, UX designer, customer service agents and QA testers but we're always ready and open to learn more.

In a small, stable and growing company like ours you have a unique opportunity to learn from a broad range of people and develop your career as we grow the team.

Our CEO openly shares all key metrics with the company regularly, with a Monday digest covering how we're doing, goals and strategy. If you like working in a data-driven environment on things that matter we look forward to hearing from you.
