About TrustedHousesitters

TrustedHousesitters is a global marketplace that is disrupting the pet care and travel industries. We connect a community of home and pet owners with sitters to solve a common two-sided problem - pet care and cost-effective travel. Customers join for one annual fee. After that, sits take place as a trust-based, money-free exchange that sees owners enjoy worry-free travel while our sitters enjoy the company of pets and unlock a world of unique accommodation.

We're fully in scale-up mode and have grown to be the only global platform of its kind. In the last few years, we’ve consistently achieved high year-on-year growth, and have remained resilient throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Thanks to strong tailwinds in the pet and travel industry in the post-Covid world, 2021 has been our strongest year so far. As a result of that, we’ve recently closed a $10m series A funding round, and have an ambitious growth strategy to execute on this year.

We've recently made the transition to a remote-first business, however we've retained a HQ in central Brighton which is available for collaborative working and in-person meetups.

We’re looking for a talented Product Designer (Growth) to join our Product team. This is a great opportunity to help scale TrustedHousesitters.

This is a remote UK-based role. Sorry, but we can't employ non UK-based candidates and sponsor visas at the moment.
