About the job

We have an exciting opportunity to join our small team to help us develop our content around plant descriptions and care guides. The placement would be for a four-month project, with the potential for it to be continued. The project will be focused on developing the content we hold describing plants at a genus, species and cultivar level, working with our expert gardener to develop the processes required for content management, while supporting her to build the care guides and source other key information relating to the thousands of garden plants found in Britain’s gardens. The placement will provide a challenging, highly authentic start-up experience as the intern helps us to build our plant related data and content. The work undertaken will directly impact on the success of the imby.bio platform – the content developed will be immediately available to our users, and is a key foundation for the long-term success of our company.
