People and Operations Assistant

Clearmatics Jobs / London / People & Places
Job Overview

Clearmatics is an IT and financial protocol engineering company. We are building a new financial market architecture that is more open, fair, and resilient than the legacy systems that are in use today. We develop protocols and software that create new markets for risk and more efficient infrastructure for trading, backed by a robust and scalable blockchain network, and secured with modern cryptographic techniques and economic mechanism design.

Clearmatics is based in London but operates on a 'remote first' model. We welcome candidates from all over the world. We have close ties to the Open Source and Ethereum communities, with Vitalik Buterin as an adviser.

The Operations team at Clearmatics work to ensure that everyone in the business has the right environment and resources they need to work efficiently, effectively and enjoy what they do. Essentially… We keep the lights on! Finance, HR, recruitment, administration and event planning are just some of the key areas we cover. Working in a start-up environment with an international team means there is always something new happening and an exciting challenge around the corner.

We're looking to hire a People Operations Assistant to expand our Operations team. Although this role is predominantly remote, the successful candidate will need to be based within commuting distance of our London office for special ad-hoc projects or occasional tasks that require physical presence.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to get hands-on with all aspects of Operations, and in particular People Operations and HR.

Salary: £24,000 - £28,000 PA, depending on experience

We celebrate successful innovation, even from our competitors.

Our thinking is focused on outcomes and optimal ways to achieve them.
