Researcher

If you enjoy being out and about, discovering new cities, or even hidden gems in your own town then a role at Placecloud could be right up your street….literally….

As a Researcher at Placecloud, you will join a small business at the beginning of their development journey and work closely with the company founder.

You will be in charge of researching for the most interesting experts from academia and publishing across cities in the UK and Europe. You will be delving into their work to see who might be suitable to join Placecloud to offer a unique and interesting insight into the everyday areas of cities that Placecloud members want to learn more about. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to act as a ‘community manager’ via social media and other channels, finding out more about the Placecloud experts and helping them to be happy and engaged in their involvement in the business.

Your research work will be key to the expansion of Placecloud across the UK and Europe and you will be the first hire after the Founder so will play a genuinely important role in helping the business to grow!



What makes a great Placecloud team member?

  • You are a bit of a culture vulture and love exploring a new city, wandering around its streets, and admiring the buildings.
  • In general, you have quite an interest in culture and the arts.
  • You love a bit of research - perhaps you’re the one in your family or friendship group that finds the hottest new restaurant to try out, the secret underground gigs, or the hidden beaches when on holiday...
  • You can work pretty well on your own and don’t mind being left to your own devices.
  • You have a really good eye for detail and don’t let things slip through the net.


If you’ve got it flaunt it (if not, Google it)

  • If you happen to have a degree in the Humanities field then this is a bonus, but don’t worry if not, it’s not essential to the role.
