We are orgulloso (that’s Spanish for proud) to provide an environment as enjoyable for our teams as it is for our guests. From day one our Founders Thomasina Miers and Mark Selby wanted to serve fresh, vibrant Mexican street food that didn’t cost the earth and we continue to challenge ourselves every day on how we can reduce our impact on the planet. We know we can only achieve this through a commitment to our people, so we invest as much time in developing our people as we do our recipes.
We’re always looking for passionate team players who have an interest in living more sustainably, who put people first and would always go that extra mile to make someone feel great. Of course, someone who shares our love for delicious, fresh & responsibly sourced produce and a love of all things Mexican is a bonus, although we’re fairly confident that if you don’t arrive a Mexican lover, you’ll definitely leave as one. Free tacos on shift every day is a very good place to start with your Mex education!
From Waitress to Operations Manager
For me it is all about the amazing people I get to share my time with every day. My favourite part of my job is spending time with our people, encouraging, coaching, and developing them so I can help them to achieve their goals whilst having fantastic fun on the way, just like I have.
From Bartender to General Manager
27th March 2019
I do what I do because I love seeing people grow within the company. I’ve had bartenders and chefs come into London with not much English or confidence and no sense of belonging and after a few weeks within being in Wahaca have seen their whole personality change. Wahaca brings people from every walk of life together and as a management team we have the freedom to engage and uplift our team in any way we can think of.
From Runner to Junior Accountant

Hey, I’m Sara. I started Wahaca as Deli/Runner in Charlotte Street and have now joined the Central Support Team as a Junior Accountant. Wahaca, for me is all about growing, challenging and developing myself. Wahaca, supports this and I have been able to develop able to develop more than I ever imagined.
I can learn, while having fun. Having fun, while belonging to a fantastic diverse bunch of people, I call my family!
From kitchen porter to Head Chef
19th April 2013
My Wahaca story started 6 years ago. I arrived in London not being able to speak English! I started as a Kitchen Porter and with the support and coaching of my Head Chef, I was inspired to progress. I always admired his drive for success and knew one day, I wanted his job! After 4.5 years, I got there. I’m very proud to work for such an amazing company, where stories like this really happen. Now it’s my ambition to be an inspiration to my team, so that they take the opportunities to grow and succeed like I did.
