Synacor is not your typical 9 to 5 workplace. 
Our award winning culture doesn’t stop at flexible work hours and 25 cent
vending machines.  Jeans and t-shirts are typical office attire, even for
the executives.  Teamwork is an everyday occurrence, and is made easy with
our new open workspaces.  Our leadership team understands that the best
results come from collaboration, so we hire the best and brightest and then let
them do what they do best: create cutting-edge products and provide exemplary
customer service.  Synacor’s headquarters is located along Buffalo’s
waterfront in the Erie Basin Marina. Taking a few minutes to enjoy the serenity
of nature is as easy as walking 1,000 feet or so to the water. We even have a
lakefront gazebo with wi-fi connection!  And if that’s not enough,  Synacor pays 100%
of health care premiums for employees AND dependents, offers stock option
participation, a healthy bonus potential and a very generous paid time off
policy. Working with some of the

services reach over 25 million high-speed Internet subscribers worldwide. 
We are looking for great people to join our team and be given the freedom to do
the work they were hired to do.
