Irish company LetsGetChecked is to add 120 new jobs at its Dublin and New York offices.

The company offers home health tests including for general health, sexual health, cancer screening and fertility checks.

It said today it would create 70 jobs in its Dun Laoghaire office in Dublin and a further 50 jobs internationally with plans to expand the team to 250.

This would nearly double their global headcount by the end of 2020. 

The new roles include positions in engineering, technical, nursing and customer solutions teams, the company said.

The technical roles span functions across software engineering, developing, design, devops, security and compliance, it added.

Peter Foley, the CEO and founder of LetsGetChecked, said the new jobs will help the company build on its success so far.

"LetsGetChecked has grown rapidly in the last few years and our Series B funding round with LTP laid the groundwork for exciting partnerships," Mr Foley said. 

Mr Foley said the company has plans for further expansion to  allow for an even more diverse offering of home health tests and clinical services in 2020.

"These new jobs will help us as we expand internationally and the hires on our engineering team will help us further develop our technology platform to give people more control over their personal health and wellbeing," the CEO added.
