About TrustedHousesitters

TrustedHousesitters is a global marketplace that is disrupting the holiday pet care industry by connecting a community of pet owners with pet-loving sitters. Customers join for one annual fee. After that, sits take place as a trust-based, money-free exchange that sees owners enjoy high quality in-home pet care 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 industries in the post-Covid world, 2021 has been our strongest year so far. As a result of that, we’ve just closed a $10m series A funding round, and have an ambitious growth strategy to execute on next year.

At TrustedHousesitters, you’ll be part of a pet-passionate, fast-growing team who are all committed to collaborating, constantly improving and having some fun while we’re at it. Sounds exciting right? We think so. If you want the opportunity to be part of that, to create something special, driving change within the pet care industry, we’d love to hear from you. 

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 SEO Copywriter to join our Marketing team. This is a great opportunity to help scale TrustedHousesitters.
