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.

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.
