About Corintis

Corintis offers innovative microfluidic cooling technologies for data centers. Our solutions improve compute sustainability and tackle the excessive electricity consumption associated with data center cooling, which consumes more electricity than New York and London combined. By integrating cooling directly inside the chip, we pave the way for the next generation of AI workloads, supporting applications like generative AI systems, climate modeling, and drug discovery to enable the future of sustainable computing.

Working at Corintis

Corintis offers a friendly and team-oriented workplace bringing together a diverse group of nationalities to solve the biggest computing challenges of tomorrow. Based on the EPFL campus near Lausanne, we are closely connected to the local ecosystem and are located a few minutes walk from Lake Geneva.
