The Plum Guide is building a marketplace of the world’s best holiday homes. For real!

We are taking a systematic and obsessive approach to testing every single home on the planet, and accepting only the top 1%.

We launched 18 months ago in London. Since, we have vetted over 80,000 homes and on track to reach over £10m in annualised sales. We are backed by an all-star cast investor group and are now taking Plum global. We launched Paris in March and now have Rome, Milan, New York & Los Angeles in our sights...

The Role

This role is part of a London based team who test the best hosts with the most beautiful homes in Rome, Milan, New York & LA to decide which should be added to our collection. Once a home has passed the Plum test, you will be responsible for gathering and quality checking the output of our freelancers in each city, then transforming their work into listings that are truly inspiring. And 100% accurate.

There’s a light & a dark side to this role.

On one hand, it’s an unparalleled opportunity to become a start-up expert. You will learn how a start-up plans to open a city, executes, and builds digital products. You will learn aesthetic judgement skills that will serve you for life, and how to get the best work out of creatives. If you love it, there will be a permanent role after 6 months.

On the other hand, we have ridiculously high standards and you’ll be required to meet these under unrealistically short timelines, whilst surrounded by a team who have only been in the business for 2-3 months. You’ll need to be driven, proactive and motivated by a challenge to enjoy this ride.

Relevant Qualities

This is our wish-list. If you were everything on it, we’d worry that you weren’t real!

  • You are ridiculously well organised.

  • A sharp eye for detail: you notice the small things. A sub-standard photo or badly written copy, would never get past your inspection

  • You have unreasonably high standards for what is good enough.

  • Super entrepreneurial: You care about getting shit done. And when obstacles inevitably get in the way, you know how to hustle.  

  • You have excellent spoken & written English

  • And if you want to make us feel like we’ve won the lottery, you will speak Italian or French (but this is not essential)


  • Become a start-up expert

  • Make your mark by building something tangible in a matter of months

  • Learn skills that will serve you for life

  • Be a member of what we believe will be one of the most famous start-ups of the next 10 years

  • Work from a buzzing office on Hoxton Square
