Operations Director

Join the Growth Story at Envitia

We’re a software and services company on a growth trajectory with 20+ years of experience in delivering world-class location and data software and expertise to customers in the public and private sector. We’re building a team that is hungry for success with a culture that is fun, supportive yet challenging, and we’re looking for talented like-minded people to join us on this journey.

What do we do? In short, we solve complex data problems to help our customers make better and faster decisions. We do this through our team of data consultants who undertake cutting edge R&D projects or work with customers to find the best data modelling, architecture and standards so they’re able to make use of their data. Or, through our software products where we enable customers to search for, and then visualise, data so they have great situational awareness and can make better decisions.

As Envitia responds to a recent period of rapid growth and is well positioned in the market for continued and sustained success, we are now looking for an Operations Director who will be responsible for transforming and then overseeing the internal functions of the business including HR, IT, Quality Assurance, Continuous Improvement, Security and Resource Planning.

Our culture

Envitia has a valuable mix of people and backgrounds, from the brightest mathematicians and data technologists, to pragmatic program managers and energetic customer partners. Across this group there is a common thread – the need to create a defined outcome with measurable business value combined with a world class experience for our customers. If you’re looking for a place where you can explore, learn, grow, and experiment in an environment that values you for what you bring, then come and have a chat. Our engineers and data scientists excel at what they do and are at the heart of who we are. As a company, we’re big enough to make a real difference to our customers but small enough to know each other well, have fun, be flexible, and appreciate what each other brings to the company.
