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 creative and experienced UX/UI designer who is passionate about crafting innovative and user-friendly interfaces. We're looking for a professional who has experience in leading or significantly contributing to web and mobile app development projects. The ideal candidate will take ownership of their tasks and actively contribute with fresh, innovative ideas. We prioritize a collaborative approach over a hierarchical structure and are eager to work with an expert who can inspire our team.
