Seriously dude, "Synergies".
I'm not in the market (if you'd looked at my LinkedIn account you would clearly see that).
As somebody that is constantly propositioned by recruiters I'll leave you with this.
Do your research on a person see if they even still work on whatever position you're trying to fill.
Good developers get form letters like this ALL DAY, we immediately delete them.
Also, just be personable with a simple "Hi I'm AAAAAA I've got an open position doing XXXXXX if you're interested let's talk".
My apologies if this comes off as rude but I get about 10 of these a day and it's form letter after form letter.
I promise you that if you talk to developer's like a normal person you'll have better results.
