Job Details

DescriptionLife at Elvie - Meaningful work. Exceptional peopleAt Elvie, we don't believe women's bodies are the problem. Instead, we believe the problem is that the needs of women's bodies - and therefore, lives - have been ignored, misunderstood, and underestimated.

Founded by Tania Bolder in 2013, Elvie has been improving women's lives through better - and smarter - technology ever since. We develop innovations that meet the unique needs and complexities of the female body so that women can take charge of their health across every life stage.

Our first product, Elvie Trainer, is a multi-award-winning device bringing hospital-grade pelvic floor care to the hands of women everywhere- it was even a gift in the Oscar Nominee Goody Bags! And now, we're proud to say that we're part of the NHS Supply Chain in the UK.

Our second innovation was Elvie Pump. Launched in 2019, it's the world's first silent, wearable breast pump, enabling women to pump wherever they please- even the catwalk at London Fashion Week. It's since won numerous awards, including the Times 100 Best Inventions of 2019 and 'Wearable Design of the Year' at the Dezeen Awards. The initial success of our wellness tools gave us the means to expand our breastfeeding range to include Elvie Curve and Elvie Catch, both designed to give mothers total comfort and confidence.

As a business, Elvie has received more than 30 awards (including the prestigious Red Dot Design award). We're ranked as one of the 15 startups 'To Watch' by The Sunday Times and Business Insider and ranked as the 13th fastest growing business in the UK by Syndicate Room. Our founder and CEO, Tania Boler, is regularly profiled in top-tier media titles, and, in 2021, Tania was named GLAMOUR's Women of the Year: Technology Gamechanger.

In July 2021, Elvie announced an $80 million Series C funding, the number one position and biggest raise in an initial fundraising round in the femtech category.
