Operations Lead

At Elemendar we're looking for an Operations Lead to join our team.

Full-time / Part-time · Remote · No agencies
Please no recruiters.


You will be highly organised, personable and a great communicator. A successful candidate doesn’t require a minimum number of years of experience or particular knowledge of any software. We are a fast-growing start-up and so we need people who thrive in unstructured environments. To be successful in this role you will need:

  1. High energy: We need someone who brings energy to the team and helps keep the organisation productive, not just through process but through personality. We don’t just want someone to put in place processes, we want someone who can win buy-in from the team.
  2. Strategic outlook: We are looking for someone with the ability to keep the team focused on the business priorities, not just to get through the to-do list. Sometimes there will be trade-offs with how things need to be done right now and how they need to be done as the business grows. A successful candidate will be able to navigate the needs of the business now with one eye on what will need to be done in the future.
  3. Flexibility: Working in a start-up environment requires you to be flexible and adapt to the changing needs of the business and never to worry about sunk costs or existing ways of working. You will have the ability to build this flexibility into the culture. This will likely mean working on totally different tasks from one moment to the next, helping the engineering team one day and then working on compliance the next.  


Elemendar is an AI and Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) company founded in 2017 at the UK's first GCHQ and NCSC accelerator. We apply AI to CTI, the information that drives understanding and reacting to new attacks and threats. Read all about our new product here!

Our customers include the UK's and other governments as well as the private sector and we are growing fast after our recent fundraising. We need your help to grow Elemendar and make the world a safer place for all.

Our teams work remotely, with a mixture of full- and part-time team members based all over between the UK and India time zones.


Your job will be to add leverage to the right people and fix leaks as we scale. Your tasks will vary widely, and a successful candidate will be able to figure out what needs to be done without senior management necessarily knowing first. We anticipate our main needs will be in two key internal areas:

  1. Operations

    - Short and long-term resource planning, ensuring that everyone works efficiently and expectations are met. 

    - Manage our compliance requirements across a number of areas such as IT infrastructure, data security, software subscriptions, outsourced contracts etc. 

    - Integration, coordination and sequencing: setting and tracking delivery, monitoring internal processes, SLA adherence etc.

    - Support teams with their OKRs and milestones to keep everyone on track. 
  2. Communications

    - Make sure internal communications are effective across teams as we scale.

    - Ensure that as a remote-first organisation we keep all of our staff on the right page and feeling part of the team.

    - Support the customer and product teams for external communications with customers and make sure these are cascaded throughout the organisation. 


Competitive pay with equity options and company performance target related bonus (dependent on your level of experience), plus opportunities to:

  • Join the AI industry: Rare opportunity to work at a start-up using cutting-edge AI techniques in the cybersecurity industry.
  • Be in early: We have raised funding and are now scaling. This is an opportunity for an ambitious person to join our journey early and shape the growth of this function.
  • Shape your own future: There are things that need to be done today. But as we grow, new challenges will emerge with the opportunities to be involved in diverse work across communications, strategy, and organisational design.

Elemendar is an equal opportunities workplace; we celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all team members.
