Kaine Shutler

Managing Director

Kaine is the founder and managing director of Plume and the award-winning designer of many of our client’s products. Kaine’s 10 years of experience means that he can solve complex user challenges through creative interface design, and his work has been recognised by Interfacely and CSS Awards.

Igor Mitic

Senior Developer

A problem-solver and Plume’s web developer extraordinaire, Igor’s design background and keen eye for detail make him one of the most valuable members of the team. Joining Plume back in 2015, Igor first began building websites alongside Kaine Shutler before progressing into the development of learning management systems. Although mostly development orientated, Igor inputs on almost every single project thanks to his extensive knowledge in web technologies. Igor is Plume’s longest-standing member of staff, besides Kaine, and he credits his enjoyment of the role to the variety of clients Plume attracts and the opportunity to learn something new every day.

Joss Hutton

Project Manager

As a very experienced client-facing digital project manager, Joss has worked in a wide range of commercial sectors, producing digital properties (websites, apps, AR solutions and more).

Kelly Newcomb

Digital Marketing Specialist

Beginning her career in events and social media marketing, Kelly has expanded her skill set and now specialises in SEO, content writing, PPC, sales funnel management and customer journey optimisation. Having worked both agency and client-side, Kelly has experience crafting and implementing multi-channel digital marketing and sales strategies. Since joining Plume, Kelly has proved herself to be adept at driving sales and increasing customer lifetime values for both Plume and its e-learning clients.

Our culture

Our company favours three things; communication, collaboration and creativity.

These values are deeply rooted into every aspect of our working day, from our company-wide morning meetings to our brainstorming sessions and client workshops.

Every individual here brings something some much more than just their work experience to the table. They bring a set of invaluable ideas, life experiences and passion that they inject it into every piece of work.

  • Ongoing education to help our people grow
  • Unbeatable work/life balance + flexitime
  • Weekly lunch out for the team (on us)
  • Sometimes we work from home
  • We always make time for one another
  • “A great place to work if you want to take ownership of your work while having the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and clients”
  • “You’re constantly supported and given the tools to learn, grow and improve yourself. The company workflow and processes are very intentional”

“From the initial proposal to the delivery of the outcomes we have felt listened to and understood, challenged and guided as needed… But most of all we actually felt like partners – not new customers.”

Success through collaboration

  • Discover

    “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” – Abraham Lincoln.

    The Plume approach starts by taking the time to get to know your business, your customers and the specific challenges that you face from day to day. With this insight, we can provide you with the best possible solution while also being time-and-cost effective.
  • Research & strategy

    We research the market and analyse the competition before working with you to create the strategy to work by. With a solid plan and clear deliverables in-place, we can ensure everyone works towards supporting your business goals.
  • Create

    Working from a great headstart from the previous stages, we will collaborate with you and your ongoing feedback to create a high quality solution that answers all your requirements. Your ideas might evolve as your project develops; we’ll keep up.
  • Growth & support

    At Plume, we love to support our clients through their company’s growth. As the developers of your site, we believe we can do the best job at maintaining it. We offer a flexible range of support options, including extra documentation and training.
