Wriggle is an app and website transforming cities into thriving independent hubs of amazing food & drink venues, that people can’t wait to discover.
Bristol-born and bred, Wriggle helps its audience to discover the best local food & drink. It was set-up in 2014, with a mission to help independent food businesses reduce food-waste, and has developed into a home for local food & drink discovery – bringing together delicious local offers and events, all tied together with engaging articles and videos. Currently live in 3 cities, the platform is growing quickly – and will roll-out nationwide in 2019.
Wriggle is right at the beating creative heart of Bristol – both in its work in promoting the thriving independent scene, but also in its city-centre location (their office is on the buzzing King Street – the cobbled street in the centre of Bristol, conveniently surrounded by some of the best craft-beers pubs in the city) – so, whether as a user or an employee, Wriggle is the perfect way to discover Bristol.
“Day to day, we hand-pick the city's best eateries, spark new partnerships and curate awesome foodie content for our app and website - and play a pivotal role in readying Wriggle's future roll-out plans and cementing the strategy for entering new markets in other cities (which, if you're anything like us, you'll agree is pretty exciting stuff).
You'll need to handle unexpected challenges and problem-solve on the move but, as with all good jobs, it's great knowing that your team is always there to lend a hand... and challenge you to a game of table football if you need a few minutes of well-earned downtime!"
Will Best, Partnerships
“Wriggle’s a petite but perfectly-formed team of passionate, switched on, engaged individuals from all walks of life. Everyone is hungry for change, excitement, and of course: delicious food and drink – the cornerstone of everything we do at Wriggle. In marketing, we get to thrill our customers with disruptive marketing campaigns, unique online content and memorable experiential events.
We move fast – but so does the market – so we adapt, think on our feet, and keep things lively. You’ll learn a lot – you’ll need to bring fresh ideas, creativity, and a sense of silliness. It’s genuinely fun”
Alice Howells, Marketing
“Working as part of the Wriggle tech team is a blast, in the past 18-months I’ve had the chance to work on numerous cutting edge technologies within a fast paced environment, be that working on my own solo projects, or collaborating with our senior developer or CTO! ”

Life at Wriggle
Wriggle is a small close-knit team. There’s a relaxed working environment, with 4 office dogs pootling around and lots of table-football played. Everyone is encouraged to be engaged and engaging, to get as involved as possible, and throw out ideas – and to take ownership for their work. The product develops quickly – so it’s a company where there’s always new challenges – and an opportunity to directly affect the direction of the company. Because of the nature of Wriggle’s work, there’s plenty of opportunities for eating-out, and regular team drinks – and the King Street office is perfectly located for that. Wriggle is structured around its 4 key values: (1) a passion for food & drink, and your city (2), pride in what you do, (3) openness and honesty, and (4) a desire to have a positive impact. If those strike a chord – and you want to get in early at a quickly-developing company, drop them a line. The company regularly looks for new team members in the following areas:
Sales/Operations (people to meet and build relationships with all the amazing indie food & drink establishments)
B2C marketing (spreading the word about Wriggle to our audience)
