DevOps Engineer

Full-time position in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The company

AmberScript is a startup based in Amsterdam. We are building SaaS software that enables users to automatically transcribe audio and video into text and subtitles using speech recognition AI. Our own SaaS editors or human transcribers bring it to 100% accuracy. We help users to avoid the costs and pain of manually transcribing their interviews, meetings, or other audio and subtitling their video. With our tool creating perfect texts takes around 1 hour for an hour of audio, manually doing this takes around 5 to 6 hours and is much more troublesome. Some clients use the automated texts directly, some use our software, some have them improved by our transcribers.

The job

We are looking for someone that takes ownership of maintaining, scaling, monitoring, and securing our infrastructure. Your role is to ensure smooth operations of our scalable machine learning workers, deployments, microservices, monitoring, and logging.

Preferably you fit the following profile:

  • Master of Science in computer science or a related field
  • 2-3 years of experience working on production infrastructure systems
  • Experience working with AWS, Docker, Kubernetes
  • Strong skills in maintaining Linux servers, SSL, networking, CI/CD, monitoring
  • Experience with NodeJS, Java is a plus
  • You have a strong motivation to optimize infrastructure and deliver solid code
  • You are proactive, good in communicating in English and a fast learner
  • You are able to work in Amsterdam (or willing to move)

We offer you the chance to work in a team of passionate and driven people who work on cutting edge technology. You will take ownership of DevOps and are responsible for high-quality code. You will get in contact with machine learning, AI, and NLP and have the chance to have deep philosophical conversations with our office Alexa.

We are flexible when it comes to working hours, we work hard, we celebrate our successes and are passionate about what we do: change the world of transcription services. We are based in the heart of Amsterdam right on the beautiful Keizersgracht.

At AmberScript, we are proud to always be thinking ‘bigger and better’. We are extremely product focused, knowing that success is ultimately dependent on the quality of the product. 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 into summaries, to-do lists, and notes.
