Backend Engineer


Our vision is to change how we work together using generative AI.

Information overload is hurting people’s efficiency and well-being. We are constantly bombarded with an immense amount of data, coming from multiple sources, in an unfiltered or prioritized way.


theGist is using generative-AI tech to increase workplace productivity by simplifying information creation and consumption with a contextual assistant.

Our first tool, theGist for Slack, filters out noise and provides personalized summaries of Slack discussions.
