About Flo

Flo is an AI-powered health and wellbeing app for women and girls, which supports them during their entire reproductive period. Using cutting-edge technology, we combine scientific knowledge, clinical experience, and the power of community to improve the health and wellbeing of every girl and woman worldwide every day.

Already 36 million women and girls use Flo monthly in order to make healthier choices and live a well-balanced life, with 7.5 million in the US alone making Flo #1 period tracker for American women and girls. Since August Flo has been the most downloaded Health app in the AppStore. 

Women’s Health is still an under-prioritised and under-researched area and we believe that it deserves much more attention and action. To enhance research activities in Women’s Health, we are actively collaborating with the leading universities worldwide (Stanford, Northwestern, John Hopkins, Adelaide etc).

We are also conducting our own research studies to ensure the efficacy of Flo innovations to deliver the best backed by science product to our users. As we expand our scientific team, we are looking for a Science Advisor who has a profound research experience and enjoys writing for both scientific journals and lay audiences.
