Who we are and who we’re looking for
Yuppiechef is South Africa's premier kitchen and homeware store. Based in Westlake, Cape Town with retail stores in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, we see ourselves as helping people find more moments of joy in their homes — through products that make daily life more comfortable, more innovative and more beautiful. And we do it through our omnichannel shopping experience, providing our world-class service to our customers both in our stores and online.
High quality product content on our website is a key component of creating a seamless shopping experience for our customers — helping them make more informed decisions and inspiring them with well-written copy, accurate specs and beautiful visuals.

Who you’ll be working with

We’re also into things like pets, gin, coffee, series and cake (basically any and all baked goods).
Who you are
Besides having the necessary talent and experience for the role, we’re looking for someone who is, above all else, eager to learn, inwardly driven, and cares about the details. You are a good communicator (both in-person and asynchronously over email or chat), work well both autonomously and collaboratively, and enjoy honing your technical skills.
