About us

We’re a pre-launch wellness technology startup on a mission to take on an overlooked vitamin deficiency crisis that affects the majority of the world’s population and has been linked to serious acute and chronic diseases including respiratory infections, bone disease, cancer and depression.

Our first product? A coaching app and wearable tracker. We’re currently in stealth mode but can share more of the details during the application process! We’re a team of 2 based in London and Portugal and are lining up seed funding from top European Venture Capital firms in the next 3 months.

About you

An expert in global diagnostic testing and supplementation, you’ll love the idea of putting your knowledge into practice in a fast paced, high growth start-up. Armed with either a scientific degree and/or a passion for all things wellness, you’ll be excited about improving the health of people worldwide.

  • A people person and confident communicator

What we offer
