There’s something for everyone at Synaptics. Sporty types hit the gym midday or head outside for team games, while the more outdoorsy enjoy hiking clubs, biking to work, and various friendly competitions. There’s great food, cutting-edge gear, gadgets, and toys all abound, but most alluring to many is the availability of sponsorships for continued education and development.
Defined by an ethos of innovation and forward thinking, Synaptics employees enjoy a culture and transparent management style that empowers them. From SWIPES—the Synaptics Women’s Initiative for Professional Enhancement and Support—to the celebration of cross-cultural holidays, including Christmas and Diwali, employees of all backgrounds are welcomed, given a voice, and valued.
“There are so many exciting people here, all experts in different fields—mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and material scientists. The nature of the work we do is interdisciplinary, and I love interacting with these people. It constantly pushes you to stretch outside your core skill set and learn more.”

“Over the years, the company has had various leadership development forums. It’s neat, because it’s the company giving us a week with our peers to invest in becoming a better leader. Not a manager, but a leader—trying to understand how we can take responsibility for improving the overall culture of the company.”
