The Company

The Plum Guide is building a marketplace of the world’s best short-term rental homes.

We are taking a systematic approach to testing every single home on the planet, accepting only the top 1%. We do so by putting each home through The Plum Test: a gruelling hospitality exam, which uses a mix of algorithms and physical visits by hospitality experts.

We launched three years ago in London. We are now in 12 cities across 9 countries, we have vetted over 100,000 homes and are on track to reach over £25M in annualised sales. We are backed by an all-star cast investor group including Local Globe (TransferWise, Citymapper), Alex Chesterman (Founder of Zoopla), William Reeve (Founder of Love Film), Alex Saint and Troy Collins (Founders of Secret Escapes), Jason Goodman (Founder of Albion) and many more.

We are launching our global rollout strategy and growing our exceptional team.


The Role

We have an ambitious plan to turbocharge our Spanish markets’ supply growth through 2019 / 2020 - and that’s where you come in as Business Development Exec (Spanish Market). We’re looking for an ambitious and entrepreneurial graduate who is excited by the prospect of kick-starting their career in a fast-paced, global Series B startup. As our Marketplace Coordinator, you’ll be responsible for pitching to B2C prospects, coordinating and scheduling home tests and photoshoots, delivering feedback to hosts and overseeing the production of the listings. You’ll be the main point of contact for hosts and property managers, and will be co-responsible for the number and quality of listings that go live.

Whilst there will be the opportunity to work on other special projects, essentially your role is all about ensuring that our daily, weekly and monthly targets for onboarding new homes and hosts are met. This is a fantastic role to be introduced to the exciting work we’re doing here at The Plum Guide, and has every opportunity for fast progression within our team.

Please note, for this role it is an absolute requirement to have fluent or professional working language skills in Spanish.
