Website Vira Health

We are on a mission to make personalised menopause care the norm.

About Vira Health

Working at Vira is an opportunity to be at the cutting edge of digital health technology – solving problems for over 1 billion people around the world.

Established in 2020, we are a London-based company focused on closing the gender data gap in healthcare. Starting with the launch of our app Stella, we are helping women to manage their menopausal symptoms through personalised and evidence-based treatment plans. However Stella is just the start of our vision. Across brain cancer, chronic pain, endometriosis and dementia there is evidence of misdiagnosis of women. Scary? Infuriating? Time for a change? We think so.

Vira is a new company backed by leading European and US VCs. We are looking for people who are excited about being part of something big and bold from the very beginning. We are both diverse and international so flexibility is always really important to us and how we operate. We are remote-first and committed to adapting how we work to fit a variety of new and existing needs whilst embracing diverse working styles and circumstances.
