About Joshua Hughes

Prior to web development, I served as president of a small manufacturing company for 7 years. We had a few unique, patented products which were focused on drywall installation and finishing. We wholesaled directly to big box retailers (Lowes, Menards), brick and mortar retailers (Ace Hardware, AMES), as well as strict eCommerce retailers (amazon.com, duluthtrading.com); each one having their own requirements and impediments to market. I worked tirelessly to ensure accurate product listings on their various eCommerce sites (lowes.com, menards.com, acehardware.com), as well as on Amazon Seller Central and Lowe’s Vendor Central.

I know what it takes to have a successful eCommerce operation. As a business owner, I learned first-hand.

Running your eCommerce site on Magento, gives you the tools you need to successfully manage & market your products online. I have been privileged to assist some very successful companies with their eCommerce websites, including Tiki Torches, Char-Broil Grills, Zebco Fishing, Delallo, Christopher Elbow Chocolates, ECBC, The Indiana Pacers, Alcatel Mobile, Cognito Motorsports, European Auto Source, Noul, Oak & Fort and more.

Over 8 years of developing on the Magento platform has given me the experience to make sure your site is running correctly.

I have been an open-source guy for a long time and I value Magento because it is enterprise-grade. Magento does not compromise on security, won’t expose your sensitive customer data, and will scale with your eCommerce growth. Those are keys to me.

As the market leading, eCommerce software; Magento has always been my eCommerce platform of choice.

Magento has an invaluable community which has built up around the platform and actively supports it. At Imagine 2015, I was privileged to acquire dual certification as a Magento 1 Front End Developer & Magento 1 Solution Specialist. I have experience in WCAG (ADA) compliance, SEO, speed optimization and inbound marketing. I am certified in inbound marketing techniques through HubSpot, developing mobile sites through Google, and hold a bachelors of science in management.
