We’re Doccla, the virtual ward company. We provide patients and clinicians with the transformative power of remote patient monitoring 🏥📱

Our existing customers are Hospitals, Community Services, and NHS Commissioners that we partner with to deliver tech enabled virtual wards. With our technology, logistics, and support patients can be discharged from a hospital ward to a virtual one and recover in the comfort of their own homes. Patients love our care pathways and health services become more efficient; it’s a win-win 🏠🧡

We are a young company with big aims and a lot of momentum. We raised a $3.3m seed round in Q3 2021 💰 and have gone from strength to strength since: we’ve won a series of large multiyear NHS contracts, extended 100% of our existing client contracts, and have raised a large Series A funding round with a global Tier 1 VC 📈

This is your chance to join us at a key stage of our growth. Our ambition is to be a category leader for virtual healthcare. You will be joining a highly entrepreneurial team that combines technical, clinical, operational, and commercial colleagues.

We're solving real problems for patients and health systems 🤝⚕️ And we’re looking for dedicated people with a passion for healthcare to join us.

You will be building Doccla's Virtual Ward and remote patient monitoring platform and associated services. Your contributions will allow clinical professionals to monitor and interact with millions of patients across the UK in an effort to improve their clinical outcomes.

  • A passion for solving problems and taking responsibility from start to end
  • A minimum of 5 years experience as a Software Engineer
