LetsGetChecked has today announced it will be creating 160 Dublin positions and an additional 50 positions internationally.
The indigenous Irish company allows consumers direct access to a wide range of testing options and clinical support from home. The news comes after the launch last month of LetsGetChecked’s at-home Coronavirus test for Irish consumers.
LetsGetChecked has added 200 positions in Dublin so far in 2020, as well as 140 in the United States. These latest hires today will bring their total global team to 653 employees.
LetsGetChecked tests cover general health, men’s health, women’s health, and sexual health, and are available in Ireland and other European countries, as well as nationwide in the United States. The company has experienced significant growth in 2020, with sales increasing by over 800% year-on-year. The company has also shipped more than 1 million coronavirus tests since the beginning of the pandemic.
LetsGetChecked is currently working alongside American Airlines, British Airways, and oneworld to launch a transatlantic Coronavirus testing trial to demonstrate how testing can re-open travel routes and remove the need for quarantine periods.
The 160 new positions in Dublin will include several developer and engineer roles, as well as expanding departments such as nursing, data science, marketing, customer solutions, sales, and recruitment. Lab employees will be the newest addition in Dublin, to facilitate the analysis of their recently announced at-home Coronavirus tests. The growth in staff will allow LetsGetChecked to continue to expand and increase access to the company’s health testing and clinical services platform.
Commenting on the expansion, CEO and Founder of LetsGetChecked, Peter Foley said, “This year has been like no other. Through the hard work of each and every one 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.”
