LetsGetChecked to create 150 jobs as firm aims to expand global reach

Irish healthcare company sees growth surge in 2021, with sales up 1,500% year on year

Irish-founded healthcare company LetsGetChecked said it was creating 150 positions as the company seeks to expand its global reach.

The company is recruiting developers and engineers as well as lab employees, with roles in marketing, customer solutions, sales and recruitment. The growing workforce will help LetsGetChecked improve its services for customers and also expand its reach, it said.

LetsGetChecked currently employs more than 600 people. The company, which helps people to manage their health from home through at-home tests, virtual care and health insights, has seen growth surge in 2021, with sales up 1,500 per cent year on year. To date, it has shipped more than 3 million tests covering health and wellness indicators such as cholesterol, thyroid test, men’s and women’s health test, along with sexual health tests and Covid-19 swabs.

Chief executive Peter Foley said the new roles would help the company accelerate its growth as a leader in the digital health space.


“We have worked hard over the last five-plus years to build something special and I am deeply grateful to the people who are responsible for making our mission to empower people to live longer, happier lives a reality,” he said. “We are looking to add people to our team who genuinely share our passion for helping others around the world take control of their health, particularly as the coronavirus pandemic continues.”

Founded in 2015, LetsGetChecked has offices in Dublin and New York, and earlier this year raised $150 million in a Series D funding round that pushed LetsGetChecked to a $1 billion valuation.
