BounceX believes the best experiences start with knowing your customer. Whether it’s the local barista who knows how you like your latte, or the trusted barber who remembers the exact cut you want, it's this familiarity that keeps you going back.

BounceX’s employees claim that they have so much fun together in the office, that they don’t even need to go out for happy hours (though they still do that, too). “Everyone here is very, very awesome. We’re a bunch of friends who happen to work together,” says Matt Russell, Lead Graphic Designer.
