About Us

Our journey

Synth is the embodiment of our founder’s fascination with our evolving world, and their intrigue at the possibility of bringing those changes to life in a visual and truly useful way.

Mission and Values

Our mission

At Synth, we want to vastly expand our human view, so we can learn from what we see, and take more positive actions to improve and preserve life for our people and our planet. Our mission is:

To bring past, present, and predictive visual data together in one place, to amplify our understanding of evolving situations and inform smarter decisions.

But underneath our mission, driving it, driving us and how we approach every day, are our values:

We value life.

Our team and our software is here to improve all life – people and planet.

We celebrate knowledge.

Knowledge gives us the power to truly make a difference. We ask the right questions, encourage innovation, and never stop searching and learning.

We embrace openness.

We welcome new partners, new data sources and new ideas with enthusiasm, always remaining open to new opportunities and possibilities.

We invest in relationships.

The people we work with – whether inside or outside our team – are important to us – we connect genuinely, communicate honestly, and behave respectfully.

Work with us

Join our team

Our team is made up of unique and different people – and we are proud of that!

While some of us love sport, others love computer games, and others still are into movies, two things we all have in common are our mission and our values.

Our mission helps us get up every morning and ‘Synth’ to the best of our abilities all day, with passion, vigour and dedication.

Our values come from all of us; they represent the people we are, and the way we always want to behave and think.

The great news for you is: we need more people to join our team – people who are just like us (share similar values and mission), and people who aren’t like us (are interested in different things we can learn about too!).

What can you expect when you work with us?

Our conditions are designed to support you and create greater balance in your life, because we know that’s important – we offer a 100% work from home opportunity.

We respect each other, and we will respect you and your uniqueness, so we can help you find the best possible way for you to work comfortably and productively with us.

Who are we looking for?

We want people who are interested in technology, embrace change, challenge the status quo and want to be part of something that is rapidly growing in a new and exciting space. 

We’d love new team members who are intrigued by one, if not all of the industries we support, and ultimately, we are aiming for people who work well with others and autonomously.

How do we help?

Whether responding to natural disasters in the neighbouring Pacific Islands or building invaluable infrastructure in the war-torn parts of the Middle East, Australia’s soldiers rely on accurate data and clear visualisation tools to effectively plan operations and minimise casualties.

Synth Maps enables vast volumes of data from sources including drones, hand-held and vehicle-mounted devices, photography, and 3D models to be layered into one multi-dimensional map. Using the platform from a mobile device, defence teams can quickly assess areas of operation to plan travel routes, all without leaving their vehicle.

Over recent decades, as the world has changed around us and we have seen more floods, fires, droughts, and storms, human beings have identified a need to adapt, evolve, and preserve to work in partnership with our planet.

By bringing together an array of data from the past and the present – changes in landscape, precipitation, pollution levels, soil – in specific geographic locations, we can reduce our impact on nature and its often devastating impact on us.
