About SylloTips

Imagine a workplace where every question, no matter how complex or niche, is met with an immediate, accountable and expert response. At SylloTips, we are building a unified human-in-the-loop conversational agent that can instantly connect employees with certified answers and expert colleagues, revolutionizing knowledge sharing in companies of any size.

We are a small and agile startup accelerated by Techstars, the most active pre-seed accelerator in the world (1% acceptance rate). We just closed a pre-seed funding round of 450k euros and we already serve more than 10 large customers.

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented engineer who appreciates challenges and is filled with curiosity. We hate hierarchies and value ownership, indulgence, and expertise. We let people contribute in their own style as long as they are actively pursuing SylloTips’ mission. Leadership is established solely on the base of technical and communication excellence.
