At Plantsome, we believe that plants do incredible things for people - they bring joy, health, and simple, unpretentious beauty to the world. Bringing people and plants together is what Plantsome is all about and we love to have fun while doing it! 


Plantsome is looking to fill two positions: Warehouse Supervisor (Full-Time) and Shopkeeper (Part-Time).

  • Clear, weekly communication with head-office around any challenges, opportunities, and needs regarding the procurement of material, inventory, or maintenance. 

At Plantsome we win and lose together as a team! We are all responsible for the collective result and as such, we take great care in selecting candidates that embody that spirit. And if you love being around plants, you'll have no problem adjusting to your new lush and green work environment!

The hard work that our Shopkeepers do to pick and pack the right plants and pots is essential to the success of Plantsome. That's where you come in!
