    Hired Top Employer in 2022 and 2021

    At Thriva, we’re on a mission to help millions of people worldwide become actively invested in their long term health. Through using health insights to help them thrive.

    Thriva was the 7th fastest-growing business in Europe in 2021, and we also recently ranked 3rd on the Sunday Times 100 list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies.

    Our consumer business is for everyone who wants to improve and understand what is happening inside their bodies. From taking a home test to getting actional results and GP advice all through a website and app.

    Our B2B business, Thriva Solutions offers health services and provides a full end to end diagnostic service (DAAS). We offer speed, reduced risk and scaling of diagnostic capabilities for partners who work with us. We’re building a new category in the market and would love for you to come on this journey with us.

    We’ve sent over 5 million test kits to hundreds of thousands of customers, giving them insights into their health, measuring things like nutrients, hormones, cholesterol, and also have an exciting clinical innovation pipeline, where we’re constantly looking to bring in new tests and testing modalities, such as sexual health screens, genetic testing, and urine testing.

    There are lots of problems we work on that aren't immediately obvious: How do we optimise pricing between multiple labs? How do we make the physical testing process as simple and easy as possible? How do use genomics and wearable data to add context to customers' results?

    Engineering at Thriva

    We currently have 5 teams within our wider Product Team, each one dedicated to tackling a different stage in the customer’s / partner's experience. Most teams consist of a Product Manager, a Product Designer, and Backend and Frontend Engineers with access to other teams like Data, Clinical, Growth and more.

    We work in two-week sprints and at the end we have a retro to reflect on what went well, what we have learned and what we can improve moving forward.
    We also have developers meetings, hackathons and knowledge-sharing sessions so engineers from different teams can share learnings and we do a lot of pair programming where beneficial.

    Each team member has their own area of expertise so we all help each other learn and grow.
