About us

At SMOC.AI we are strong believers in rewarding attention. And in a marketing and sales landscape that still, is mainly focused on bombarding people with one way advertising, this is more relevant than ever. One of the best ways to reward attention in the online space is by talking with your leads and customers, not just to them.

Company Values

We believe your talent and achievements deserve to be met with a supportive community and flexible environment.

Impactful Growth 

Young curiosity and innovations are at our core. And we always focus on building each other and customers' superpowers, based on their strengths.

Loads of Fun

Working in a startup developing something brand new can at times be rough. But that is why we always try to have fun doing what we do. Of course there are times of seriousness, but all in all we want “funness” to always shine through in our work. 

Grit

Ambitious goals are our daily lunches. We think of exponential solutions and effects, and face obstacles with a smile.
