Who are Herd?

Herd are an award-winning Shopify Plus agency. In other words, we grow  Shopify giants. We design, build, and optimise beautiful eCommerce websites with unrivalled performance, allowing our partners to scale without limits. Our highly skilled Herd work with a variety of trusted brands across many industry sectors worldwide.

We started our journey in 2013 as a two-man band creating and optimising websites, and as we approach our 10th anniversary we’ve grown into a multi-disciplinary team of nearly 20 experts managing all aspects of digital from SEO, paid media, PR and content, strategy and consultancy, international expansion including translation and localisation, and web development, which together has afforded us the prestigious status of becoming only the second Shopify Plus partner agency in our locality.  

“We are super proud of the outstanding and innovative work our talented team of Shopify developers are producing to design and craft bespoke Shopify and Shopify Plus stores, driving unrivalled results for our partners across the globe.

This is why we’re known in Yorkshire and beyond for #GrowingShopifyGiants and have our eyes firmly fixed on the prize of becoming the best Shopify Plus performance agency in the UK.” Managing Director, Tim Powell.

What we are proud of: we are proud of our culture, delivering transparency and value for our clients which leads to long-term partnerships.

Our mission: our mission is to become the leading Shopify agency in the UK for eCommerce and performance marketing.

Our environment: our team are based in our head office in Hessle, East Yorkshire – a collaborative, open plan environment. We have a great view of the Humber Bridge and being just off the A63 makes commuting easy for days when we come into the office.

Our team: our growing team is a great blend of personalities that gives us a unique, engaging and fun environment to be part of.

We like to work hard and play hard. We have a busy social calendar, there’s always something happening with organised team socials and events both on and offsite, driven by our dedicated people and culture team. We love to celebrate individual and team successes together with highlights such as Herd member of the month and Fizz Fridays.

Getting our work/life balance right is important  – as such many of us finish at 12:30pm on Fridays, with the occasional trip to the local pub to start the weekend.

We are super excited to attend the award ceremony in February and would like to wish all the finalists the best of luck!
