Synaptec Ltd

Synaptec is a highly-innovative start-up company based in the centre of Glasgow, with roots in the University of Strathclyde's Institute for Energy and Environment: the largest power engineering research group in Europe.

We were founded in early 2014 with a mission to become the globally-leading innovator in photonic instrumentation for the electrical power industry. We are here to facilitate change in the energy industries: to push for the adoption of cutting-edge technologies, and to enable their move to a smarter, greener grid. In recognition of our vision and capability, we were awarded Best University Technology at the UK Energy Innovation Awards 2014, and were Finalists at both the IET Innovation Awards and the Converge Challenge.

Synaptec uniquely blends the disciplines of photonics, electronics, power and instrumentation to enable our clients in the power industries to instantly know the electrical, mechanical and environmental state of their systems and networks. To keep us at the cutting-edge, we are committed to recruiting the very best engineers and physicists and developing their abilities to the full.

If the prospect of putting your talent, drive and creativity to use as part of an innovative and committed start-up team excites you, we want to hear from you.
