Alice Cox VP Operations
Currently enjoying time with her newborn huggglet, Alice usually ensures everything at huggg HQ is ticking over nicely. GIF enthusiast and podcast aficionado with a penchant for alpacas, Alice can turn her hand to pretty much anything. That’s why we call her our Swiss Army Knife.

Self-confessed gamer and UX/UI expert, Ashley, has taken our apps by the proverbial horns and – well, made them a whole lot better. At the helm of all things product and engineering at huggg, she knows exactly what users want and how to get there. With a slice of HTML inked onto her forearm, you just know she’s dedicated to the cause – we can’t wait for you to see what else she has up her sleeve.
James Rennison Technical Product Owner
Boardgame buff and movie mogul, James, makes sure our systems stay in tip-top shape, and that we’re following best practices when it comes to all that technical stuff. With a big monitor and even bigger heart, James makes huggging quicker, sweeter, lighter and more joyful.

Miles Mollinga Partnerships Grower
Coffee connoisseur, Miles, takes care of growing our indie network here at huggg. He spends most of his days hunting for the best products around and making them hugggable. Cricketer, rugby player and chef (of sorts), we can’t wait to see who he brings to the huggg table.
Barry Rhodes Senior Developer
When he’s not sipping on whiskey or cycling around Cornwall, Barry makes sure our apps are looking slicker than your average at all times. Working at the speed of light, Barry adds new features and makes sure you’re able to huggg come rain or shine.
Andrés Ramírez Senior Developer
Retired skydiver and expert tortilla maker, Andres, is determined to make hugggs sent via iMessage the most heartfelt of them all. Constantly on the lookout for new Apple products and creative ways to raise a child while gaming, head to iMessage to see his work. It’s beautiful.
