The Company

HeliosX is a group of healthtech startups, with fast-growing operations in the UK and USA.

Our companies range from online pharmacy MedExpress in the UK, ZipHealth in the US and Dermatica, a personalised skincare brand. We serve over half a million patients with high-quality consultation, prescription and skincare services in the UK alone. HeliosX is dedicated to improving the quality, accessibility and affordability of healthcare for all. We’re on a mission to transform how healthcare and skincare are delivered, and we’re doing this through a market-disrupting combination of technology, science and excellent clinical care.

The Role

At HeliosX, we’ve experienced an exceptional period of growth as our group of companies continues to expand globally at a rapid pace and we continue to disrupt the health industry.

The team is co-operative, supportive and always looking to improve.
