Testimonials from the HealthXL team:

David Cardoso – Head of Technology:

“In HealthXL I found a passionate and very dynamic team, always eager to help each other and to deliver better solutions to our clients. This environment brings an extra joy to any regular day of work.”

Niall Larkin – Head of Product:

“Moving from a large organisation with established procedures and protocols to a startup environment was a shock to the system. The safety of numbers in a large corporate organisation makes it easy to fall into a routine of simply following protocol and plodding along doing your job. At HealthXL, we are doing something completely new and that has given me the opportunity to pave my own path and do whatever was needed to help develop our product. I’m not always sure of what I’ll be required to do next month/year but I know I’ll be given the freedom and support to do what needs to be done to build a great product.”
