  • About Elemendar

    Elemendar is a fast-growing AI startup in the cyber security space, founded in 2017 at the UK's NCSC Cyber Accelerator. Cybersecurity is fast-becoming one of the most important areas of technology (see the recent SolarWinds attack). Our current product turns cyber threat reports into machine-readable intelligence, making it faster, cheaper and easier for companies and Governments to protect themselves from attacks. We want to build on this and become a leader in the Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) market.

    We've recently closed our first funding round and are looking for motivated and adaptable people to help grow and shape the company. Our small team makes for an inclusive, interdisciplinary, and intellectually stimulating environment. The team has more than doubled this year and we plan to double again next year. We value diversity and welcome candidates from non-traditional backgrounds and under-represented groups in tech.

    About the role

    We’re looking for a backend engineer with strong expertise in Python, and experience operating services using DevOps technologies like Kubernetes, working alongside our other backend developer. You will report directly to the CTO and be part of a small but growing product team that builds both UI and API products for our customers to quickly analyse CTI documents.

    Your focus will traverse the stack, and will include: back-end engineering and ops support, followed by getting involved in running graph databases (we have team members for you to learn about this, so existing experience is not essential) with the option of front-end engineering support and possibility of team leadership as we continue to grow. We’re still a small growing team so being able to wear many hats at the same time and switch to sometimes fast-changing priorities is essential.

    About you


    • 5+ years experience building and delivering production-ready applications
    • Excellent Python skills

    • Experience deploying and operating services using Cloud Native technologies (Docker, Kubernetes), and knowledge of AWS or other cloud platforms
    • You actively look for ways to improve the Front-end experience, Back-end logic, our architecture and codebase.
    • Asking 'why' to help with collaborative problem solving, and balance delivering and refactoring / quality to get an effective solution in the shortest time.


    • Experience with cyber-security is not needed (though nice to have) - you’ll pick some up soon enough!
    • Working knowledge of JavaScript and React or similar frontend frameworks
    • Experience being a natural technical leader, mentoring and guiding team members in technical knowledge with best coding practices.
    • Familiarity with operating / interfacing with graph databases, such as Grakn or Neo4j
    • Experience working in a fast paced, high growth, technology focused organisation

    What we offer

    • Rare opportunity to join a funded, fast-growing, and dynamic AI startup
    • Competitive pay with a meaningful equity component
    • Flexible location and hours (time zones from UTC to UTC+4 considered, but note core team is UK based)
    • Remote-first team since day one, with the team days off-site (when safe and wherever works best for the team setup)
    • As a small team, we can consider putting in place other benefits if important to you - please ask!

    Apply for the job

    We value diversity in our small team and especially welcome candidates from non-traditional backgrounds and under-represented groups in tech. Our CTO is a woman and dedicated to supporting the engineering team with mentorship opportunities.
