About Us

For the past decade, we have been trusted by thousands and have worked hard to establish our reputation as the go-to e-commerce solution for growing brands and entrepreneurs.

It all started in 2009 right here in Victoria, Canada. It's not hard to find traces of our humble beginnings: the millions of Tumblr and WordPress sites, the legacy of early e-commerce themes, and the important work we did to empower creators and help the web's biggest platforms grow and be successful.

Today you can find us in a slightly larger HQ, with a much larger team scattered across a dozen or so cities—but the passion is the same. So is our commitment to helping brands and businesses succeed, whether they're first-time Shopify entrepreneurs, growing online retailers, or Fortune 500 companies.

In 2020, Pixel Union and Out of the Sandbox joined forces to provide even better themes to help entrepreneurs build, launch, and grow their online stores.


We'd love to get to know you, too.

If you're interested in working here, please check our careers page. We are always looking for good people. And if you just wanted to learn about the folks behind your favourite Shopify themes, we hope this has given you a taste.

We're proud of where we've been and what we've learned along the way. We're even more excited about our future. We hope you can be a part of it.
