Who we are

We are Symplectic, a software company founded in London who specialise in developing, implementing and integrating research information systems for universities and research institutions around the world.

A driving force of our approach is to minimise the administrative burden placed on academic staff during their research. We work with our clients to provide industry leading software services and integrations that automate the capture, reduce the manual input, improve the quality and expedite the transfer of rich data at their institution.

Our Story


Symplectic was founded in 2003 by 4 grinning physicists who met at Imperial College London whilst doing their PhDs. More than a decade and 50 customers later, the company still adheres to the same original goals – to produce intelligently-written software and to have fun doing it.

In 2010, we took investment from Digital Science and since then the company has grown to over 35 employees in 4 different countries, and we’re still growing!

Our Team


Building and supporting the best software in the industry can’t be done without the best team. Every one of our team members bring a unique experience to the company and between us we speak 18 languages!
