Introduction


want to be part of something big?

Then work with us.

We started out on this journey with the hope of enhancing the way humans communicate but have ended up transforming the face of messaging for good. We’re now on a very fast moving train and are looking for the very best to join us for the ride.

The most exciting part? We're hiring now.

We're huggg. A small but mighty team of humans who have been steering this for more than two years now.

Some of us are related, some of us aren't, but we think of ourselves as one big family.

PAUL WICKERS

CEO and Founder

Our chief plate spinner, Paul used to fund big stuff for big banks. Now, he builds tech stuff for small phones. 

Obsessed with detail (and skiing), Paul has no time for fun sponges or those who play it safe. 

Workaholic. Northerner. Not your average boss.

ALICE COX

Founder and Head of Operations

A day one employee, Bristol-born Alice ensures everything at huggg HQ is ticking over nicely at all times.

GIF enthusiast and podcast aficionado with a penchant for pineapples and alpacas, Alice can turn her hand to pretty much anything.

That's why we call her our Swiss Army Knife.

Values


what's it like to work here?

Values


what's it like to work here?

Our people...

Know that this is a safe place to take risks

Think big and don't allow boundaries to limit their imagination

Challenge, question and debate to get the best out of each other

Relentlessly seek better from themselves and each other

Know that asking for help is a strength, and giving help is a privilege

Have an equal voice and a right to be heard

Progress on merit, and merit alone

Know that a team is stronger than an individual, but that sometimes a single contrarian view is the right one

Don't dwell on what they can't influence, and instead focus on what they can

Add value and get stuff done, each and every day

Are happy to be on a never-ending mission

Where we work


where do we work?

Where we work


where do we work?

Sitting at the same desk all day every day isn’t really our thing. 

 

Which is why we won’t ask you to do it. 
 
Sure, you’ll have a space to call your own, but you’ll also have the freedom to work as you please. Enjoy a coffee at your desk in the morning before popping to lunchtime yoga for an hour of zen time. Or, stand to work before sloping off to a quiet room to tackle the tougher stuff. 
 
The best part about where we work is that it's open plan, so we get to know some great humans while watching their businesses grow. Plus, there's a TARDIS upstairs, which we think is pretty great.
