    Synactive has treated me great and given me opportunities to learn and flexibility to grow. The company is driven by self motivator and good people. The CEO is very energetic and is the driving force. He listens to the employees and encouraged innovativeness. This place is oasis for programmers/developers with mentorship provided by experts. If you are craving to get your hands on different platforms including iOS, Android, Web and more, this is the place. Fun environment and you will always be learning something new.
