Meet the bountiXP Team

We started bountiXP because we want to help solve the global employee engagement crisis.


Our love for tech and belief that everyone should be happy at work resulted in a plug-n-play platform that enables you to recognise and reward your people for great work; wherever they are. Our relentless pursuit of innovation has resulted in our platform being first-to-market in SA and our ambition continues to fuel our global aspirations.

Our platform has been created for people like you and designed for workplaces like yours to achieve sustainable competitive advantage. That’s why our tech’s as easy to use as instant messaging, and intelligent enough to deliver superior business results.

We’re tech-driven and human-centred with razor-sharp focus to empower the performance of people and organisations. We’re serious about changing the world of work and partnering with the right people. As a result, we’re proud to be strategically aligned to SA’s leading full-service incentive marketing and motivation thought leaders with an almost 40-year track record.

We play hard and work even harder with best-in-class product developers, content marketers, creatives and brand strategists. And while we all have different perspectives and backgrounds, we have one thing in common:

The drive to create positive work environments that drive human and business performance.
