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 vision of creating the destination for making life a little more thoughtful and beautiful, we do things differently. From inventing letterbox flowers to founding The Thoughtful Marketing Movement. And we’ve seen impressive traction to date - we are Europe’s leading online flower company, and the UK’s fastest growing ecommerce company according to the Financial Times, growing at +100%.

In January 2021 we announced our £75 million Series D funding round, led by General Catalyst (backers of Airbnb and Deliveroo), alongside other top tier investors including Index Ventures (investors in Wise and Glossier). We are home to a family of 3 strong brands, Bloom & Wild, boomon and Bergamotte, having acquired bloomon in April 2021 and Bergamotte in July 2021. Together, we are active in 8 countries. 

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.

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.

Technology Team at Bloom & Wild

There are over 60 people in the Technology team at Bloom & Wild, who work from a variety of locations across Europe, in our remote friendly model. We’re made up of the Engineering team, Platform Operations & IT, and Architecture teams, with Engineering being organised into cross functional squads, each responsible for, and with the autonomy to own, a business and architectural domain.

Technology lies at the heart of what we do, powering our business growth, and our squads,  led by an Engineering Manager and a Product Manager, are the engines that power our Engineering team. 

The Checkout & Payments Squad

The Checkout & Payments squad is a close-knit, cross functional, team who help to ensure that our customers have a great purchase experience across our gifting and subscription ranges. This means focusing on important metrics like conversion and churn rate, and owning critical areas of our website such as the checkout funnel, payment service provider integrations and order confirmation pages. We’ve got exciting challenges ahead as we evolve the checkout experience to suit the increasingly varied needs of our rapidly growing business and customer base and continue our broader strategy to break up our platform into a set of smaller services and consolidate onto a single microservices platform.
