Who we are

Based in London and New York, WIREWAX is the creative technology company powering over 90% of the world’s interactive video content.  We have helped over 750 brands such as Disney, Ted Baker, and Dulux explore new horizons in terms of audience engagement and interaction, and make their video content work harder.

Our SaaS Studio platform has almost 30,000 global users who use it to add interactive functionality like hotspots, content overlays, and video branching to their videos. One of the most immediate use case for our tech is shoppable video for brands in e-commerce, but its applications reach much farther than that, taking in interactive TV / film and DAM / metadata tools.

We’re a very ambitious outfit: our mission is to make video as truly connected as everything else on the internet, and it’s a mission which is opening up exciting new possibilities for everyone who works at WIREWAX.

About the role:

18 months in the making, the latest iteration of our Studio platform breaks cover in July.  It’s been rebuilt from the ground up, with vastly improved performance, features, and UX. However, the work is just beginning: we have a long list of additions and feature improvements which we want to implement in the next 3-6 months in order to make Studio the definitive creative toolset for video content creators.  Working alongside our VP of Engineering, our Product Owner (who happens to be our CEO!) and an outsourced / freelance UX team, you will work on all design and UX-related aspects of this development phase.
