Who makes the app look so good? Who decides what buttons go where? Who makes sure it all works? The more-than-accomplished product team, that’s who! โšก๏ธ

We’ve asked these guys all the big questions. What do their jobs involve? What are their favourite emojis? ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿพ And a few others, to give you a bit of insight into life at huggg HQ. The whole huggg team has been asked the same 5 questions, but all their answers are pretty different.

Here’s a chance to meet the people that get their hands really dirty under the hood of huggg ๐ŸŽ the amazing minds ๐Ÿง  that make sure it works all whilst making sure it looks good ๐Ÿ’…. They blow our minds ๐Ÿคฏ on a daily basis and hopefully do the same for you!
