About Skypher

Skypher is a fast-growing Y Combinator backed start-up based in San Francisco and Paris. We make cybersecurity compliance easy for tech companies. We apply the latest progress in Machine Learning and NLP to data security compliance.

We already work with the most innovative tech companies both in Silicon Valley and Europe such as Retool, Bitrise, McKinsey, Welcome or Rossum.

We are a small, fast growing company and if you want to make an impact here and help us build the next Cybersecurity giant, this is the right place for you. Our mission is to help tech companies become more secure organizations while removing the huge amount of unnecessary pain and busywork involved in cybersecurity compliance.
