Finding a great Shopify developer is difficult. Trust us - we know. It’s exactly why Storetasker exists in the first place: Our job is to put merchants in front of amazing Shopify devs. Needless to say - if you ever need a Shopify, look no further than Storetasker.
We’re super excited to continue to contribute to our lists of “DTC leaders” with this one. Having interviewed thousands of Shopify developers along the way, we’re in a good position to identify what good looks like in this field.
And if you’re wondering: No, this list isn’t a sales-push on Storetasker filled with 10 experts from our network. Instead it’s a genuine highlight of 10 of the best Shopify developers we’ve ever stumbled across, regardless of how they operate (via storetasker, via an agency or as an independent).
We hope you enjoy the list as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Without further ado, here are 10 of the most sought after web developers in eCommerce.
Rebecca is the co-founder of Same Same, working alongside the great Rebecca Russell, based in Vienna, Austria. Same Same offers full-service digital solutions with a focus on modern, dynamic design & technology. We should mention that Same Same has an insanely strong roster of clients. Kylie Swim + Mode Chocolate, Catching Theo - the range is impressive. Always deeply creative yet highly functional. Wow!
Quintin’s a long-time friend of Storetasker. We’ve shared wonderful clients and are always so thrilled to see a note from Quintin in our inbox.

True to this vision is some of his team’s work for brands like Graza, In Common With and Eadem.
We have a lot to be grateful for when it comes to Kevin Green.

So - contrary to what his domain suggests, Kevin does not suck.
