What's Our Story?

Magnetic Mobile spun out from e-commerce innovator Marxent in 2016. What started as a small team of developers dedicated to one primary account has grown into a thriving company serving a diverse range of national retail and manufacturing brands.

Our team is made up of caring, honest individuals from a broad range of disciplines—developers, designers, software engineers, project managers, user experience strategists, quality control specialists, business intelligence analysts, and more—all working together to push the boundaries of digital technology.

Magnetic is headquartered in Miamisburg, Ohio, right in the middle of the Dayton-Cincinnati technology corridor. Though we’re proud of our Midwestern roots, our growth has allowed us to attract top talent from all over the country.

Our approach is simple: stay devoted to your partner’s success and always pick up the phone. These core values of transparency, teamwork, and responsiveness help us build trust with our clients and create solid, long-term partnerships.
