Lead Backend (PHP) Developer

About the Company:

Reset Health helps people who suffer from type 2 diabetes and obesity to reset their own health. Quickly. Simply. And affordably. We create evidence-based individual metabolic programmes that benefit from the latest findings from our scientific advisory board and peer reviewed research. We combine medical expertise, smart technology and personal support to help all our members reset.

We know it's tough. There are tons of tasty foods down every supermarket aisle and it is difficult to exercise, to sleep well and to manage stress. With our busy lives and responsibilities it's so hard to take the time to reassess what's working for us and what's making us unhealthy and unhappy.

Reset Health takes the time to make that assessment with you. Our sweet spot is putting you in control of your health. We provide an individual programme with the reassurance of all the tools and support you need every day. We are successful when you get healthier and happier - it's as simple as that.
