we're hiring!

we’re looking for a community manager

We’re looking for a community manager who loves the idea of creating lasting and engaging relationships with our customer base. You’ll do this by whipping up engaging content and sparking interesting conversations that align with our company values, both on and offline. Your work will be instrumental in referring to the customer in our decision making, and driving stronger organic word of mouth referrals from a ready army of fans already who have a personal relationship with our company.
If you’re looking to hit the ground running in a creative and challenging role you can really sink your teeth into, this is the one for you!

at the top, where it should be

We choose to be an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, parental status, veteran status, disability status or on any other basis. It’s unforgivable to be any other way.

about us

Huggg is on a mission to put real product into messaging.

All messaging.


What does this mean? Well, imagine a friend is having a bad day, but the coffee cup emoji in your message to her becomes coffee in her hands – a bridge from the mobile to the real world, if you like. Something real for when words are not enough. That’s a huggg.

“This is an open, honest business as well as a great team behind a great idea. 💕”

“This is a pretty special workplace. I’m going to have to start lying about how awful you all are in order to get a little sympathy at home.”
