LetsGetChecked keeps growing with 160 new jobs in Dublin

1 Dec 2020

The company delivering health tests at home is bulking up its teams in Ireland and the US following a year of phenomenal growth.

Irish health-tech company LetsGetChecked has announced more than 200 open positions across its locations in Ireland and the US.

The company is looking for 160 new recruits to join its Dublin team, as well as an additional 50 new employees in the US.

In Dublin, there are several developer and engineer positions to be filled as well as jobs in lab work, data science, nursing, marketing, customer solutions, sales and recruitment.

The addition of lab employees in Dublin is a new development to facilitate the analysis of LetsGetChecked’s recently announced at-home coronavirus tests.

“You can be a software engineer or a front-end developer in any company, but at LetsGetChecked you are helping people take ownership of their health and get to work with a team that is deeply mission-driven,” said LetsGetChecked chief technology officer Mike Tesar.

About LetsGetChecked

Founded in 2015, LetsGetChecked sends clinical tests direct to consumers so that they can test at home. The testing options available span general and sexual health as well as the latest option for at-home coronavirus testing.

LetsGetChecked issues tests to customers in Ireland as well as most other EU countries and across the US. By combining health data and diagnostic results, LetsGetChecked also provides health insights to inform decision-making in healthcare.

With corporate offices in the US and Dublin, the company has grown its global employee base by hundreds already this year and, with 800pc year-on-year growth in sales, the company continues to expand.

In May, it announced $71m in funding to fuel this expansion and the supply of at-home coronavirus testing. It claims to have shipped more than 1m coronavirus tests to date.

“This year has been like no other. Through the hard work of each and every one of our team members, we’ve been able to make a positive impact by helping people around the world manage their health during a global crisis. We are looking for people who share our passion and our mission here in Dublin to ensure we are doing as much as we can to allow people to take control of their health,” said CEO and founder Peter Foley.

With these latest roles recruited, the company’s global headcount will reach more than 650 employees.

Future plans will see LetsGetChecked continue to address the global pandemic as the company is currently working on a transatlantic coronavirus testing trial alongside airlines such as American Airlines and British Airways.
