Jim Bode Tools

We are beyond pleased with the work Paolo has done for us. He developed our new website and working with him was THE best business to business experience we have ever had! (and we have been in business for 20 years). We are fortunate to live nearby so we could meet him and we trusted him instantly!

From the second we met, he listened to our needs (which were many), and delivered on every one of them. He went way beyond that and suggested new features and functionalities to make ours and our customers’ time on our site the easiest it could be. Now it is an absolute pleasure for us to work in our admin area and our customers let us know how happy they were with the new changes. We are all blown away.

Paolo worked endlessly to deliver the best product for us and monitored every. single. thing. as we launched and even after the project was done. I cannot describe how dedicated and professional he is. We absolutely need MORE like him in this world.

He caught an error from another provider from our past site and I contacted them. They didn’t even know about it themselves and told me "wow, great catch from your developer! you better keep him!”. - Enough said!

The value we received was far greater than the cost to have Paolo and his team develop and launch our new website for us. We love our new website and could not be happier. We have now worked on more projects together and will always go to him first in the future.

Thank you Paolo and Team Hidden Gears!

We've been working with Hidden Gears now for a couple of years and I've got nothing but good things to say about Paolo on his team. When working with developers as someone without a strong tech background, there's always this fear that they will take advantage of you. Similar to a car mechanic, you're just not sure if you need all of the services they recommend or that it'll take that much time. With Paolo, it's the complete opposite. He works quickly and efficiently and is a great communicator. You get what you pay for and then some and you have the peace of mind that if any issue comes up, he'll help you out with it. All in all, I strongly recommend them to anyone needing help customizing their shopify page.


After a year of hard work, we finally have a store that conveys who and what we are. Hidden Gears is deeply dedicated and caring, really co-creating a site that we are proud of, is intuitive, user friendly, and adaptable.

Bottom line is that Paolo is my GO TO web guy. I built my own internet business, but Hidden Gears is who I will always use to keep my website up to par and always updated with SEO tactics. He has ALWAYS been quick to meet my needs and always reasonably priced. I never even need a quote from him anymore, as I know he is trust worthy and will do the job right. My web business has benefitted with increased sales due to Paolo at Hidden Gears attention to my website.
