Fun stuff: animated development process video clip
Simply put, Synapse is a company that makes cool stuff. Whether it’s building a best-of-breed GPS sport watch with Nike and TomTom, creating new AirFloss technology with Philips’ Sonicare, or designing field-ready DNA analysis devices, Synapse is always building something brilliant. Aside from their thrilling work, Synapse’s employees—including inventors, designers, engineers, technologists and strategists—are rewarded with full medical coverage for themselves and their dependents, a 4 percent match on employee 401(k)s and company-sponsored health savings accounts. Those benefits, combined with a sparkling, newly remodeled downtown office complete with rock-climbing wall and foosball table, place Synapse amongst our top three large companies in 2012.
Looking at Synapse facebook and twitter, they are still working on social media fan base at about 500 leads on Face book and Twitter. Would be nice for these cool product to be introduced in social media more actively from this local Seattle company to get their presence more known. Synapse seem to be active on Startup community in Seattle. We may see their presence in UW business competition and technology innovation events. Their product innovation seems to be all over the map but that makes it kind of interesting to keep eye on to see what they come up with.
