The Huddle Mission
Andy and Alastair set up Huddle with a clear vision: to make it easier for people to work together. Huddle is now transforming organizations across the globe, enabling people to connect and share information no matter where they’re based. Gone are the days of spending hours travelling to meetings, struggling to contact colleagues and hunting through your inbox for documents. Through our Huddle Foundation Programme, we also donate more than $400,000 of software to charities worldwide each year.
In just a few years, Huddle has grown from a bedroom start-up to a 60-strong team based in London and San Francisco. We have thousands of partners worldwide, including HP and Intercall, and household name customers such as Disney, Kia Motors, Nokia, UNICEF and Boots. We’re also not the only people that think Huddle is great, the company has been recognized by media companies and analysts worldwide. Huddle was named in the visionary quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace 2009 and declared the best B2B/enterprise start-up in the TechCrunch Europe Awards 2009.
We believe in building a team of peers, so everyone is involved in the hiring process at Huddle. If you hire great people, they also hire great people and we now have a fantastic team dispersed across London and San Francisco.
Life at Huddle
We don’t have a social committee – we have the Funderbirds. From subsidized outings to theatre, go karting and wakeboarding, through maxed out Xbox and Wii set-ups, barbecue lunches in the office, to quarterly company outings we play harder than we work. Once a year we also give our employees a Huddle Cuddle – you get $600 to spend on anything you want – as long as it’s not work related!
