Posted 4 April by Wiser Graduates Easy Apply Ended

The Company

We are the fastest growing premium snack brand in the industry, selling over 3.5 million bags of yummy and healthy snacks every month. It all started in a little kitchen in East London in 2011, with a ground-breaking launch into a very saturated (and not just in fats) market we introduced consumers to a brand-new way of snacking - the good kind!!

Behind a successful product is an even more successful team (67 of us to be exact), in an incredible open plan office based on the beautiful canals in Old Street. Our office is FULL of colour, energy, funky music (mostly 80s) and of course, new and exciting ideas for our brand. Only the most ambitious, forward-thinking and brilliant minds make it through our door and there couldn't be a better time to join this dynamic team, looking to continue dominating the snack market across the globe.
