Welcoming UW Students to Synapse

A few months ago the Seattle Synapse office was contacted by the University of Washington Business Fraternity, Phi Chi Theta, hoping to coordinate an office tour and info session with the Synapse senior leadership team. Similar to Synapse, Phi Chi Theta is a small organization that feels like family, and each member wears many hats to make it successful. Each student brings a unique perspective to the group, reflective of their wide variety of educational backgrounds: engineering, marketing, journalism, business, and finance. Even though many of the students were in the midst of midterms, twelve students hopped on a bus and headed to the Synapse office in downtown Seattle.

Synapse gladly welcomed the students and organized some time for our Vice President of Finance, Jon Lyons, to answer general questions and speak with the group on finance, accounting, and employee recruitment. The students were curious about Jon’s background and time at Synapse, and came ready and eager to ask well thought out questions.

They are a very motivated bunch that were keen on gaining advice on their steps after graduation. One of the engineers in the audience already knew he wants to work for Synapse! They inquired about the Synapse internship program and enjoyed hearing about the hands-on experience interns receive with client projects.

The Synapse team loves to open our office doors to student groups, but especially to groups as engaged as this one. Please contact us if your group would like to stop by our offices!

Exploiting the Opportunity Window of 5G

The largest carriers and equipment vendors have much to gain from the deployment of 5G, and they're prepared to weather the long roll out. However, for innovative businesses that see 5G as an opportunity to disrupt their own industry, yet lack the capitalization or patience of those firms, Alex Sutton offers some key considerations for designing transformative 5G systems in the face of rollout uncertainty.

Stop Yelling at Alexa, She Doesn’t Get You… Yet

The recent success of smart speakers has been a great leap in human-digital interaction, but there’s still a lot of space for developers and companies to cover to create smart devices and environments with truly engaging and intuitive interfaces. While voice command technology can handle simple tasks, the interaction can fall short because it has modest understanding of human intent.
