Life at Plume
At Plume, we believe that technology isn’t about moving faster, it’s about making life’s moments better. Which is why we’ve built the world’s first, and only, open and hardware-independent service delivery platform for smart homes, small businesses, enterprises, and beyond. Our SaaS platform uses WiFi, advanced AI, and machine learning to create the future of connected spacesand human experiencesat massive scale.
We now deliver services to over 50 million locations globally and have managed over 2.5 billion devices on our platform. We’re expanding rapidly, pioneering a new category, and we achieved our Series F funding in just four years.

With a bias for action and a love for being trailblazers, the team at Plume embodies a combination of relentless curiosity and imaginative innovation. We challenge ourselves to think in ways that other companies don’t, work to do what should be done (rather than what can), and if we can’t do it exceptionally well, we don’t do it. It’s how we’ve assembled a team of world-class builders, thinkers, and doers. And it’s how we’re reinventing what’s possible every day.
