Remote-first - London / Bristol Office Optional
Fully flexible hours
At Elvie, we believe that women’s health and well-being have been ignored, misunderstood, and underestimated for too long. Our mission is to bring long overdue innovation to women's healthcare and to create better products for women.
The Elvie culture is entirely unique, distinguished by an uncommon blend of courtesy, curiosity, and intellectual energy:
- We make an impact: We’re mission-driven and not afraid to break boundaries. We relentlessly focus on going the extra mile to solve problems.
- We are fearless innovators: We are passionate, curious, and data-driven. We continuously embrace change and innovation.
- We are in it together: we fail and learn fast, always as one team, and have fun along the way. We stay authentic and embrace our differences.
Founded by Tania Boler in 2013, Elvie has been improving women's lives through better and smarter technology ever since. We develop innovations that meet the unique needs and complexities of the female body so that women can take charge of their health across every life stage.
Our first product, Elvie Trainer, is a multi-award-winning device bringing hospital-grade pelvic floor care to the hands of women everywhere. We're proud to say that Elvie Trainer is part of the NHS Supply Chain in the UK. Our second innovation was Elvie Pump, the silent, wearable breast pump, enabling women to pump wherever they please — even the catwalk at London Fashion Week.
We've since expanded our breastfeeding range, including manual solutions, Elvie Curve and Elvie Catch, and more recently, the ultra-quiet electric breast pump, Elvie Stride. Launched through insurance, Elvie Stride is worn under clothing, so mothers can discreetly express wherever the day may take them.
As a business, Elvie has received more than 30 awards (including TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Inventions 2019 and 2021). We’re ranked as one of the 15 startups ‘To Watch’ by The Sunday Times and Business Insider, and the fastest-growing privately owned femtech company in the Deloitte Fast 50 Awards. Our founder and CEO, Tania Boler, is regularly profiled in top-tier media titles, and, in 2021, Tania was named GLAMOUR’s Women of the Year: Technology Gamechanger.
In July 2021, Elvie announced an $80 million Series C funding, the number one position and biggest raise in an initial fundraising round in the femtech category.
Flexible working approach
At Elvie, we're incredibly dedicated to being a flexible place to work. We have a flexible environment –our culture is built on trust and autonomy. We have offices in Bristol, London (which is dog friendly!), Shanghai, as well as a team in the USA, but it's the norm for staff to regularly work from home. We also offer a host of other benefits, including flexible hours, company share options, enhanced parental leave, and we're also open to part-time employees too! We also recently added life leave, which we explain in more detail here.
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"The culture here is so respectful of its employees and I've never been made to feel guilty for having out-of-work commitments (children, appointments etc). Parental leave is great, holiday is great, as well as working from home allowances and personal development. I feel like I've won the lottery and can't believe that I'm actually paid to do this."

What do we think of Elvie?
I am so happy to have Elvie on Flexa, not least because they are a truly flexible company striving for an inclusive and diverse workforce, but also because they are making a real difference in the world. Elvie's success so far, in terms of funding, awards, recognition, and sales of their brilliant products, shows how desperately innovation was needed in the women's health and wellbeing space.
