Who We Are

Synaptek is the exciting digital innovation start-up division that's redefining how work is done through the use of intelligent process automation software.


After 10 years of delivering IT operations, services and consultancy under the Spherica Business Solutions brand, in April 2019 we took the decision to create a completely new division. This new division is dedicated to delivering the next level of digital transformation through intelligent automation, and thus, Synaptek was born. Launching with the backing of a successful parent company means we have the agility of a start-up with the stability of an established business.

We are now looking for an Integration Developer to help meet the strong customer demand Synaptek has created.

We’re on a mission to make everyone’s working day more productive and enjoyable by reducing the time spent on inefficient processes and mundane, repetitive tasks. Our desire to change the way people work for the better drives who we are and what we do. Every day. For every customer.

Our Values & Culture

Relentless Innovation - As a business we are constantly moving forward. We should never settle for the status quo! "Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Engineering Excellence - Being ‘just good enough’ is not good enough. We do everything to the absolute best of our ability and nothing less.

Bring Your Whole Self to Work - It takes a diverse team to create amazing customer experiences, software and products. We need you, your background, your experiences and yourself!

Own It- We believe that nothing is impossible, so own your ideas, projects and work. It’s your company too!

Fly Safe - Don’t be afraid to shout up when things go wrong or aren’t right. So long as we learn from our mistakes and each other, we can keep our ‘aircraft’ safely in the clouds.

Together - We are on a mission and share a common purpose. The only way we can get there is to align our aims, ourselves and our work; we are all in this together!

We believe that through technology we have the power to change working lives, so we live by this mantra in everything we do.
