About us

Bloom & Wild is re-inventing the $60B global flower industry. Over a billion flower exchanges take place every year and industry satisfaction levels are low. Driven by our core belief that you can never care too much or be too thoughtful, we do things a little differently. From inventing letterbox flowers to founding The Thoughtful Marketing Movement. And we’ve seen impressive traction to date - we are Europe’s most loved flower and gifting platform, growing at 100% year on year.

2021 has been an exciting year for us! In January we announced our £75 million Series D funding round, led by General Catalyst (backers of Airbnb and Deliveroo), with participation from multiple other top tier investors including Index Ventures (who have also backed companies such as Transferwise and Glossier). Bloom & Wild acquired bloomon in April 2021 and Bergamotte in July 2021, cementing our position as Europe's leading online flower company. Together, we are active in 8 countries. We are home to a family of 3 strong brands, Bloom & Wild, bloomon and Bergamotte.

We really care about creating a diverse and inclusive team and we welcome people from all backgrounds, with different perspectives, ideas and experiences to work with us. In our team, everyone has the freedom to give their opinion, grow in their career and be part of a genuinely caring and inclusive team.

We have been named one of the 5 fastest growing tech companies in Europe and are alumni of Tech Nation’s Future Fifty. We were also one of the Sunday Times Top 100 Small Companies to Work For 2020.

  • Flexible working schedule (core hours from 10-4pm)
  • We offer flexible bank holidays so at any time you can trade a bank holiday day off and in its place take off another day that fits better with your beliefs, values and celebration calendar.
  • Choose your laptop and any extra equipment you need to do your best work
  • Health cash plan through Simplyhealth
  • Personal Development Budget
  • Enhanced Family Friendly Policy
  • Workplace nursery - a salary sacrifice based childcare scheme
  • Childcare Vouchers
  • Pension Contribution
  • Discounts on our blooms!
  • Lunch & Learns
  • Bloom & Go Wild trips (once we’re able to again) - most recently we went to Paris!

Sponsorship

  • We're proud to hold an A-rated sponsor license, so we can assign certificates of sponsorship. This means we can support applications from anywhere as long as the job is deemed suitable under the points based system

When we’re in the office:

Our lovely, light and spacious office is conveniently located close to Vauxhall and Oval stations in London. We have an informal, inclusive and scale-up culture and those who choose to come into the office, also benefit from:

  • Early finishes on Thursdays & Fridays to spend more time with each other.
  • Beer, wine and soft drinks fridge.
  • Season ticket loan (scheme currently frozen due to Covid-19).
  • Cycle to Work Scheme.
  • We’re a social bunch and plan to re-start our regular company wide events as soon as we can! Previous ones have included in person Summer & Christmas parties, post peak celebrations and regular team lunches.

In addition to our normal perks and benefits we’re supporting each other and maintaining our culture remotely through:

  • Weekly online yoga class and access to ClassPass workout content.
  • Birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions celebrated.
