Help us enable even more peace of mind
Iridia was founded on the premise that broader access to Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) would save lives. Since then, we’ve built and staffed Canada’s first privately owned mobile hospital and deployed it to provide care to BC’s resource sector workers in the far North. Along the way we’ve been shortlisted as a Top 100 employer, acknowledged for rapid growth, and nominated as having one of the best corporate cultures.
The journey to date has been a rich one to be sure, but there is much left to do. Our values are our fundamental driving forces for decision-making. We have our sights set on making an even bigger difference in the health and well-being of everyone we connect with. And this is where you come in.
