… if this is you, then you may have just found your perfect role. Read on!

The Company

Lavanda is a B2B software company. We’ve developed an award-winning, best-in-class SaaS platform that enables Multifamily and Student accommodation operators to optimise their portfolios with a comprehensive short and medium-term rental solution.

Our software toolkit enables partners to tap into the full spectrum of rental demand across their portfolios, whilst powering a range of management solutions to suit their evolving needs: fully-outsourced operations or in-house management.

Having raised $10m+ to date, we’re backed by leading institutional VC and angel investors and are now scaling the business globally.

The Opportunity

We’re hiring an Operations Manager to work alongside the Vice President Operations to support the day-to-day running of our fast-paced startup. This role works across the business helping to build processes, drive improvements and bridge the gap between our teams.


As well as your day-to-day (which will vary!), you’ll work on special projects that help to shape the future of our business. You’ll be presented with a problem and work tirelessly to find a solution, report back and then implement the change across the business. You’ll be able to turn your hand, at speed, to different projects. You’ll go from day-to-day administrative tasks to solving complex problems within minutes.


We’re on the lookout for the kind of person that loves getting their hands dirty and building things from the ground up. Flexibility is key – if you like a varied role, you’ll love helping with multiple business areas, jumping in where you’re needed. You’re a true multi-tasker and don’t get phased by fast-paced environments.


You’re able to prioritise your workload effectively and recognise that in this role, you’ll never get to the end of your to-do list! You have a keen interest in all areas of business and understand that the answer is always available – even if you have to hunt for it. You genuinely believe everything is solvable – “sorry that’s not possible” is not in your vocabulary!


Your ability to take a problem, break it down and find a solution is enviable; you’re that person that your friends and family always turn to because they know “you’ll know” or at least find a way to make it happen. You’re obsessed with detail and are the type of person frustrated by poor grammar, missed punctuation and spelling mistakes.


You’ll definitely be able to quickly build relationships with anyone. You don’t mind who you’re talking to and you’re a true team player that can gel instantly with anyone.


Finally, you’re the type of person who is excited about taking their career in PropTech in an innovative new direction; you want to constantly grow and develop personally, but are also passionate about being instrumental in helping a fast-growing business grow faster!


Competitive salary.
Choose your own tech – get the equipment you love using at work.
Generous holiday allowance, including the full Christmas to New Year as a break on us.
Regular socials (albeit virtually for the time being!).
Join a highly motivated, engaged team of extremely smart, creative and talented people.
