The Plum Guide is building a marketplace of the world’s best and most beautiful 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 do so by putting every home through The Plum Test: a gruelling hospitality exam, which uses a mix of algorithms and physical visits by hospitality experts – our Home Critics.
We launched around three years ago in London and have since vetted 189,000 homes in six different cities. We are now looking to close our series B round of funding to continue expanding worldwide.
Imagery is one of Plum’s most important and differentiating assets so we spend a lot of time getting it right.
A photographer and stylist spend up to 3 hours in the home, depending on its size, to prepare and execute the shoot. Using a brief you get from Plum, you’ll work with the photographer to bring the home to bring it to life, and tell a story through beautiful photos.

What you’ll be up to
The stylists are an extension of our team, but on a day-to-day basis, you can expect to:
Join a training session about the Plum brand and our photography guidelines to ensure the style and aesthetic is consistent on the site.
Visit some of the most beautiful vacation homes in New York, Los Angeles or London and meet their owners.
Prepare the shoot and work collaboratively with the photographer to achieve the standards set out in our Photography Guidelines.
Study the home and its aesthetic before attending the shoot to plan your approach.
Bring with you or purchase the items you’d like to use in the shoot.
Help build the Plum brand, culture, and team in each city!
Who we are looking for
We’re looking for bright, energetic, and passionate people who love their city and are passionate about design and interiors. Get in touch if:
You’re passionate about interiors, design, and hospitality and have a strong opinion about what’s good enough, and what isn’t.
You have a solid portfolio of interior or architecture photography styling or set design.
You’re able to tell a story about a space through photos – and can capture the things that make it special.
You think real estate photography is bland and boring, and can bring much more life to a space.
You’re a people-person. You find meeting and getting to know new people easy and a pleasure, and regularly get told you make a great first impression.
You’re organized and always on time for appointments and meetings.
You’re committed. You take responsibilities seriously and never miss deadlines.
You have exceptionally high standards. From food to art and fashion, you live and breathe design excellence and have an eye for it.
You take pride in your work and wouldn’t dream of putting your name to something sub-standard.
You share the same taste and standards for quality as our target guest: mature and affluent creatives and professionals.
