My clients epitomise the phrase “Tech for Good”.

Founded in 2019, they have already received multimillion £ venture investment to help them achieve their “why”.

Put simply, their “why” is to help our NHS treat more people. Using Tech, they allow the NHS to free up beds on wards and at the same time save money by providing patients and clinicians with the transformative power of remote patient monitoring.

Their customers are the Hospitals, Community Services, NHS Commissioners that they partner with to deliver tech enabled virtual wards. Patients love their care journey and health services become more efficient; it’s a win-win. Unsurprisingly, both the number of trusts they work with and the number of patients they support are constantly growing, both in hospitals and at home, by monitoring patients remotely via IOT medical devices and targeted questionnaires.

They have a rapidly growing team with evolving needs and the applicants who join at this early stage will have a significant impact within the company.

You will become the first employee with formal responsibility for all things QA and testing.
