About Syntropy

Syntropy stack is a self-service solution that enables engineers to set up secure connectivity across all their endpoints in just a few clicks. If teams need to connect thousands of their endpoints, they can do so using our software agent in combination with container-orchestration systems like Kubernetes and configuration tools like Ansible.

Once devices are connected, syntropy controler automatically routes packets via the best possible path using our smart routing tech and leveraging all major cloud networks at once to form segmented flat networks. On top of this, we provide clear visibility and performance insights into each connection using our network management tool.

Syntropy is on a mission to fundamentally change the way the Internet works, providing the new technology foundation for data security, privacy and connectivity across all of the Internet. It is an open, impact-driven project, supported by tens of thousands of community members, top industry executives, professionals and investors.

About this role

Syntropy’s goal is to create the world’s largest and most distributed routing network.


Our network currently connects 500+ major cloud locations through a single smart network, capable of routing the data through the best possible route, which significantly optimises latency across all public Internet connections, reduces jitter and avoids packet loss occurrence. Want some help visualising it? Follow the link: https://darp.syntropystack.com


Currently, we have a plan to expand the network to more than 10,000 data centre and edge locations, and we’re searching for a global network infrastructure expert to take ownership of these operations (and more).


In this role, you will be hands-on and lead the network architecture planning activities. You will define the requirement specifications for our core network/infrastructure strategy, and subsequently execute that strategy. This is a dynamic role which will cover work on architecture, software, team management and leadership.
