Job description

The Company

The Plum Guide is on a mission to build the definitive collection of the world’s best homes. Through expert human curation and innovative tech, we’re taking a scientific and systematic approach to vetting every home in every city we open, and accepting only the top 1%. Like a modern Michelin Guide - but for homes.

We launched 3 years ago in London. Since then, we have grown 15-20% month on month; expanded to 12 cities; tested over 100,000 homes; developed a customer experience that’s returning the highest NPS scores in the hospitality sector; and are on track to reach over £25M in annualised sales.

We are backed by some of the world’s top VCs and angel investors who have built many of the world’s most exciting companies of today. These include TransferWise, Citymapper, BuzzFeed, Appear Here, Graze, Depop,  GymBox, Zoopla, LoveFilm, Secret Escapes to name a few.

Earlier this year we closed a £14m Series B round of funding. Our focus for the next 12 months is on building an exceptional brand & customer experience; and maintaining hyper growth through accelerated global rollout.


The Role

Imagery is one of Plum’s most precious and differentiating assets. We spend a lot of time getting it right. Once a home passes the Plum test and is accepted to the collection, we arrange a photoshoot.

No day here is the same: we’re looking for a creative who thrives in a fast-paced working environment with genuine variety to produce work of the highest quality for multiple teams.

- Visit some of the most beautiful vacation homes in London and meet their owners

-Work on photography guidelines to set the standard of our listings globally, working alongside our network of trusted freelancers

-50% of your time will be spent working with the London Collection team: capturing 10 home shoots per week
