About BUG

At BUG we make it easy to cook delicious insect meals at home – with our insect cooking kits delivered straight through your letterbox.


We’re on a mission to change perceptions and take edible insects mainstream. To do this BUG is building a world-class team of fun-loving, ambitious people, and we’d love you to be one of them! 


We’ll be developing and launching badass products that our customers absolutely love, whilst growing our community and spreading the word through creating world class content and hosting events and street food stalls. 


CoFounders Leo and Aaron founded BUG in 2018 as a weekend hobby cooking and shooting insect recipe videos in their garage for fun. In April 2020 they sold the first BUG Kit.


Will, the team’s Chef, is an industry leading development chef, having previously designed the recipes and ready meal ranges for Coop, Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets, in addition to several high street restaurants. 


We have an experienced board of advisors including Donna Egan (former VP of Marketing at Gousto), Alvaro Baudet (former Procter & Gamble and Ernst & Young), and Ben Cooper (a well connected advisor and investor). Our investors include Holly Branson (daughter of Richard Branson), Peter Norris (Chairman of Virgin Group), Carl Pei (founder of One Plus), James Frost (former CEO at Gay Times), amongst others.


As a startup that's forging a brand new category, we are scrappy and very hands on. We’re looking for people who love a challenge, are comfortable pushing themselves, learning, and growing with us.

The type of person you are and your values are just as important to us as your experience and skills. We only hire really kind people!

We are looking for a highly motivated, self-driven, videographer who creates amazing videos and loves food. You’ll need to be creative, adaptable and a fast worker – we’ll be shooting a lot of videos!
