SynGlyphX helps organizations make sense of complex data so that they can take action on what is most important.
Technological advancements have led to an over-abundance of big and complex data sets. SynGlyphX helps makes sense of this data by offering technology solutions to help synthesize (Syn), visualize (Glyph), and solve for the unknown (X variable). We:
Our unique approach to interactive visualization technology is enhanced by Perceptual Engineering – the optimal design of a visual environment to enable the user to more efficiently interact with and synthesize high-dimensional and complex data sets. This approach is supported by decades of academic and government-funded research on how the mind best understands and processes complex data. This differentiates us from more conventional data visualization tools and approaches - and allows you to take action faster.
SynGlyphX collaborates with customers to: 1) analyze their data and decision-making environment; 2) design and develop an interactive visualization solution tailored to each customer’s unique needs; and 3) partner with the client to use the interactive visualization solution.
Because people experience the world in three-dimensions, we visualize data in three-dimensions. Because people learn best experientially, we created an environment that lets the user interact with data, navigate to points of interest, pivot, move and rotate. With SynGlyphX, the user is an active participant with – not passive viewer of – the visualized data.
SynGlyphX helps defense and security organizations leverage disparate and heterogeneous data sources to improve situational awareness and operational performance.
Operators, analysts, and high-level decision-makers in this sector face distinct data challenges: budget constraints, data stovepipes, and increasingly large and high-dimensional data. SynGlyphX visualization tools address these challenges so that public sector organizations can improve the speed and quality of their data analyses.

The Software Engineer – Data role plays a key part in building out our core software products – and may play a role on complex client development efforts. The primary focus of the role will be on software product development – in particular developing a system to integrate our product with multiple sources of data such as relational databases, graph databases, big data, and data generated by other software tools.
As we are a small team, this role will have a high impact on our product development – and as such, we are looking for developers that can both: 1) code to a given software design; and 2) create their own software designs and implement them.
Targeted Candidate Background
The ideal candidate will be an articulate, energetic individual comfortable working in a dynamic environment – and operating in a self-directed manner within a team and client focused environment. We are looking for someone who wants to “own” things but also plays nice in the sandbox with others – and is open to taking feedback and direction as needed.
Candidates should have:
This role will interact with clients on a regular basis – and is expected to be proactive, efficient, and intellectually curious – in order to best serve our client needs.
• Perform data compilation, cleansing, processing / transformation, and data visualization
• Query databases and perform basic statistical analyses
• Design visual representations of the data set(s) – and iterate with client to finalize design
• Conduct and communicate complex analyses in a clear and actionable manner
• Addressing and answering hard questions with data – creating insight

SynGlyphX Named to CIO Review for Top 100 Big Data Companies
FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - CIO Review (www.cioreview.com) has chosen SynGlyphX (www.SynGlyphX.com) for its Top 100 Big Data companies, an annual listing of 100 most promising technology companies offering Big Data Solutions. The positioning is based on an evaluation of SynGlyphX's interactive data visualization and discovery technology that allows users to quickly identify patterns, trends, and anomalies in complex data -- so that they can take informed action.
"SynGlyphX has been on our radar for some time now for stirring a revolution in interactive data visualization technology and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology-driven-solutions," said Harvi Sachar, Publisher & Founder, CIO Review. "SynGlyphX continued to break new ground within the past year benefiting its customers around the globe and we're excited to have them featured on our top companies list."
SynGlyphX goes beyond traditional data visualization, providing technology that allows users to synthesize (Syn-) complex data using interactive visualizations (-Glyph-) to solve for the unknown (-X) and take informed action. SynGlyphX differentiates itself from other data visualization technologies in that it allows users to visualize multiple dimensions of data connected to a single entity. Rather than reducing the data down to a few points, SynGlyphX allows users to see all of their data so that no connections are missed.
