Moving to Monte Carlo with Djokovic after completing her studies, Ristić got a job working as a human resource coordinator for the European energy provider Tamoil. However, dissatisfied with being confined to an office for so long, she soon left the job. She subsequently formed her own company, the digital marketing firm Jelena Ristić Consulting. Ristić also founded the celebrity magazine Original, of which she serves as the executive director. In 2013, she did a brief stint as a swimwear model for the UK-based online lingerie retailer Figleaves.

Ristić now travels with Djokovic on tennis tours, appearing in the stands at almost all of his ATP tournaments. She also runs a charitable foundation in his name that funds projects to help young children in need, especially in the area of accessible early education. As the director of the foundation, Ristić and her team work to train teachers, renovate and establish kindergartens, and organize support groups for parents.
