The company

We are AmberScript, a young startup based in Amsterdam.

We help users to avoid the costs and pain of manually transcribing their interviews, meetings, or other audio.

Our self-developed AI speech to text engine obtains the best results in the market, as proven by independent tests in the media. Our product is being used by hundreds of thousands of journalists, scientists, students, doctors, and lawyers.

  • Master of Science in computer science or a related field
  • 2-3 years experience working on production-ready Java Spring code

  • You have a strong motivation to build new features and improve existing code
  • You have experience with unit- and end-to-end tests
  • You are proactive, a self-starter, good in communicating in English and a fast learner

At the same time, we never lose track of the bigger picture. Go big or go home: we have grand ambitions and coming up with new features, services, products or strategic directions is part of our daily conversation.

Our goal is to make writing and typing redundant: pens are for drawing! Transcribing interviews and audio files is a first stronghold in the speech-to-text market, after which we aim to constantly improve our services. Our vision is to become the tool that makes writing abundant by automatically transforming all audio and video into summaries, to-do lists, notes, and subtitles.
