About Symless and Synergy:

We make life easier for people with multiple devices by making great apps. Since 2012, Symless has proudly developed Synergy, an app that shares one mouse, one keyboard, and one clipboard between multiple computers. As well as being used by over 2 million people worldwide, it’s also used at some pretty neat companies like Apple, Pixar, Disney, Google, Amazon, and many more. That said, we're actually a very small company of 20 people, so you won't get lost in the crowd.

  • Collaborate with peers to deliver high-quality code
  • Act as a role model to inspire and motivate team members
  • Communicate complex ideas and help guide the team to a solution
  • Maintain low-level system components
  • Contribute to our open-source projects
  • Share your ideas with the whole team
  • Try out new technologies and innovate
  • Code using test-driven-development
  • Testing your own code thoroughly
  • Engage in escalated support tickets to the team


We'll need you to have:

  • Excellent English communication skills
  • Professional development experience:
    • C++
    • Win32, Carbon, and/or Xlib (all 3 would be awesome, but not required)
    • Maintenance and improvement of a complex codebase
    • Memory management
    • Low-latency networking
  • Development experience on at least two of these OS:
    • Windows
    • MacOS
    • Linux

It would also be nice if you had experience with:

  • Qt
  • Boost
  • Wayland
  • Objective-C
  • Cocoa
  • Linux servers (we host our apps on Linux)
  • Test-driven-development, unit testing, integration testing

Thanks for checking us out and we look forward to the opportunity to get to know you personally!
