Employer: Elvie

Who Are They?

Elvie is a company that is dedicated to improving the lives of women around the world. They approach problems from a woman’s perspective and solve these problems as engineers, scientists and designers to create new products and solutions which support women.

Some of the products they have developed include  the world’s first silent wearable breast pump, small enough to stay hidden underneath clothing. Many women find this ideal because it is discrete and they are able to pump breast milk at any time.

They also design a product to support women with bladder control and to speed up postnatal recovery, which has collected more than 11 awards worldwide and is recommended by NHS professionals.


To design, develop and make Femtech products requires a lot of different STEM, and non-STEM, based roles.

Among the different roles at Elvie are:

  • Design Engineer
  • Software Engineer
  • Electronics Engineer
  • Researcher
  • Head of IT and security
  • Logistics lead
  • Product Designer
  • Data Scientist

Although based in the UK, Elvie is a global company, so there could be opportunities to travel.
