About Echo:
Echo makes prescriptions painless. Through our revolutionary app patients can order NHS repeat prescriptions, get medications delivered straight to their door, and even get reminders when it’s time to take them too. It’s secure, simple to use, and, most importantly, free.

Our founders, Sai and Stephen, started Echo back in 2015 in response to their personal frustrations with the process of getting repeat medications.

We’ve come a long way in just a few years. Today, we now help tens of thousands of people get their repeat prescriptions — making their already busy lives that bit easier.

Our customers are our number one priority. We pride ourselves on giving them the best possible service. Nothing motivates us more than when we get amazing feedback from the people using Echo to manage their medication.

We won Start-up of the Year and best HealthTech firm at the 2016 Elevator Pitch Live awards, and app of the year at the 2016 Healthcare Start-up awards. We’re also a proud member of Tech City UK’s Upscale class of 2017.

Echo is backed by some of Europe’s leading investors, including LocalGlobe, the leading early-stage VC that previously backed TransferWise, Lovefilm, Osper, Improbable.io and Zoopla.

We’re growing fast and are on the lookout for talented professionals who are passionate about improving health for millions of people in the UK. Are you up for the challenge?
