BUFFALO, N.Y. and BOSTON, May 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC), the leading provider of next-gen startpages, award-winning TV Everywhere solutions, and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services, across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, today announced, as a complement to its Buffalo, NY headquarters, that it has opened a specialized engineering hub in the Boston area with numerous new positions. Synacor's new office is located on Technology Park Drive in Westford—neighbor to IBM, Juniper, Sonus, Akamai, and many others, and well-situated between Boston, Cambridge, Worcester and Nashua—and will support Synacor's rapid innovation helping consumers connect to their favorite TV shows, movies, music, games and sports, on the device of their choosing.

Tapping into Boston's rich pool of tech talent, the expansion is projected to produce up to 25 new jobs, including openings for software engineers, software quality assurance (SQA) engineers, project managers, scrum masters and user experience engineers, all working in an agile development environment. Synacor's Westford office is led by Synacor SVP, Software Engineering, Steve Davi.
