Synapse Technology provides an artificial intelligence platform for the hundreds of thousands of security checkpoints around the world, including airports, office buildings, and others. Today, screeners running checkpoints miss most threats, providing minimal security. Human operators face massive cognitive challenges and are unfortunately the only barrier that can prevent a dangerous item from getting through a checkpoint.

Our AI platform processes these X-Rays in real time to automatically detect firearms, knives and other threats. This automated screening solution reduces the reliance on human operators for screening. Our technology drives innovation into a stagnant industry, with a unique ability to have a high impact in a short amount of time on a global scale. We work closely with senior government stakeholders worldwide, and our systems are currently deployed at international airports across the world in Japan, Sweden, and other countries. To date, millions of passengers have been secured by Syntech ONE™.

The Role – Deployment Technician

Our systems are deployed on-premises and have to be configured for each customer. Effectively, we ship a small computer for each machine that we're going to be installed on. These computers, which run Linux, need to be set up and configured with all of the right software and settings necessary for that customer. The hardware also needs to be installed on-site, often with some last-minute changes and customizations.

Our customers are around the world, and so the Deployment Technician will often need to travel to set up new systems on-site or train technicians on setting up our systems. Our customers and distributors are currently located in Japan, UK, France, Netherlands, Jordan, and other places.

Since the Deployment Technician will be often setting up systems in the presence of clients, they'll need to be an ambassador of Synapse's brand and professionalism and be able to carry out basic communications and answer basic questions.
