An Insider's view of Syndio

What are some social events your company does?

Effective teams are built on meaningful connection, inclusivity and trust. Physical separation poses huge challenges for collaboration. As a team we try to socialize in person & remotely to stay connected. We do this by getting together quarterly for activities & dinners, we have daily coffee chats, and Zoom themes on Fridays (most recently hats!)


Front End Lead

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Pay Equity problems aren’t static and are often reintroduced during compensation cycles. An organization can work to resolve pay gaps but if future comp decisions don’t take that work into account then the problems just come back. Our challenge is to provide ways to not only address existing pay gaps but to reward and hire in an equitable way.


Software Engineer

What does career growth look like on your team?

We are focused on scaling our people to meet the needs of our customers, our company, & ourselves. This brings opportunity for career growth as team members move into leadership roles; skill development as they move into new specializations; & employee development as we double down on continuous learning to provide a world class customer experience


SVP, Customer Experience

What is your vision for the company?

To reimagine the way the world works for the benefit of employees and the betterment of all



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are building a platform that can surface why certain communities are under-represented in high-paying job groups. To do this, we are using data to run statistical tests at scale & present key, actionable results. I love the conversations we are having as a team- and we are creating a product that will help employers provide fairness at work.
