The Syndio Employee Experience

Syndio is a tech startup with ambition. We were founded on the belief that companies must do more than just say employees are their most valuable asset — they need to prove it. Using our technology to empower, data to inform, and expertise to inspire, we help some of the world's leading companies embed workplace equity into their core business.

We are committed to equity for everyone in the workplace. But we don't just deliver it — we live it.

A passion for people is in our DNA.
That's why purpose is prioritized in everything we do.

Our mission is to help companies eradicate workplace inequities and ensure every employee is valued for who they are and what they contribute to their company's success.

Our values


Relentless pursuit

We go farther than 'fair.'

Relentless pursuit

We are a team of pursuers — in our tasks, our goals, our mission — and we relentlessly pursue our mission to make the workplace fair for everyone. 'Fair enough' is not good enough. We will not stop until we achieve workplace fairness.


Candor & trust

We live in the candor-trust loop.

Candor & trust

Trust in people and systems is at the root of the problem, and the solution, of workplace fairness. It's also at the root of what lets us make bold moves when needed — like hiring cross-functionally — and it's why we do right by our customers, even if that means briefly slowing down to address any mistakes.


Brave futurism

We start building tomorrow, today.

Brave futurism

The workplace is hurting people as we speak. We know because we've been there. We understand what needs to change and can envision a viable, better future. That's why we push each other to innovate. Whether your job is to design our future strategy or fix present bugs, we have each others' backs as we try new approaches, learn, and try again — until our vision is reality.

Curiosity & humility

We ask our way to action.

Curiosity & humility

Silence and ambiguity breed inequity. Questions — especially difficult questions — unlock information that can activate us and our customers. When in doubt, kindly express your doubt. When in power, humbly acknowledge others and ask even more questions.

So we're transparent about our pay.

We post salary ranges for every job opening.

We offer competitive salaries above median market pay (where geographic location does not impact or affect pay within the same country).

We review ranges and internal salaries annually to ensure that as our company grows, so do our employees' salaries.

We report on our own pay equity, median pay gap and CEO pay ratio to Syndio employees bi-annually.

Equity comes from representation + opportunity.
That's why we prioritize diversity at every stage.
