Careers

We are a team of storytellers, crafting journeys and narratives out of the sublime chaos that is India. We spend our days together envisioning thematic journeys, quizzing each other on mythologies and histories, sourcing the right antique piece for a demanding guest, chasing the “soft light” for our photographer friends for the quintessential shot, negotiating prices with hotels, debating the choice of the “perfect” word for an idea… If spending your days similarly with a multidisciplinary team sounds appealing to you, do peruse the openings below.

 

Aside from the specified openings, we are always looking for travel researchers, graphic designers and writers. If you are a creative soul who believes that travel is a means to nourish the soul, and love the written word and the captured image, do send us a postcard at careers@kamalan.travel.
