About Soroco

Soroco is an early-stage, fast-growing intelligent automation company that is disrupting how work gets done across the enterprise. Every day, we challenge ourselves to recreate manual work in large organizations using advanced computer science techniques. In doing so, we hope to refocus human attention on more abstract problem solving while automating away routine, repetitive tasks. Till date, we have developed two key platforms – Scout and Prospero – that allow us to use NLP, ML, and computer vision to reproduce a human’s ability to (a) identify automatable activities, and (b) automate them at scale.  Though early in our journey, we are confident that we have the right technical instincts to become the leader in advanced automation, and we are always looking for other talented professionals to join us!
