Company Description

We are currently looking to identify and recruit ‘up-and-coming’ talent eager to work and shape the future of preventive healthcare. The most exciting times are now starting!

Our Salvus Care platform is evolving constantly and at a very rapid pace. Today, the platform allows for self-measurements of 7 vital medical parameters and appeals to a wide variety of users.

  • You will be working together with the founders and the technical team, aligning in the product roadmap.
