People & Culture

Located in NYC, our team is extremely passionate about e-commerce, technology, and design, but we’re so much more than that.

We’re musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, animal lovers, and foodies. We’re fashionistas and geeks. We’re clean cut and tattooed. We’re Netflix binge watchers and deep thinkers. We’re also very much like you and your customers. We’re people.

In a world of screens and devices, we need to remember that these interactions can and should be personal. From our initial conversations to our post-launch support, you’ll always be dealing with people who care about you and your brand.

We don't sell hours. We sell value. We don’t just design and code. We plan, strategize, and consult on the best possible solutions to optimize your customers' experiences and foster your brand’s growth. No, we’re not going to make your logo bigger, and we don’t make things “pop." However, we will make your mission our mission and use our expertise to meet and exceed your goals.

We believe that our work should not only produce amazing results for our clients but should also be fun and rewarding. Avex believes in a strong work-life balance, not just churning out projects.
