Finance Controller


Are you eager to learn everything about scaling up with a fast-growing AI software startup? Are you able to take the lead on the financial and business administration, working directly with the company’s management?

This role is about taking ownership of all incoming and outgoing financials, optimizing the bookkeeping, and working on separate business projects that help in scaling up the company.

This role is perfect if you have spent 1 to 3 years in a finance department and you want to take a leading role. We will also consider those with some finance experience who want to complete their final internship at a fast-growing company with the option to join our team as a finance specialist afterward or those just graduated and wanting to give their finance career a kick-start!

About us:

“We value taking ownership and setting ourselves ambitious goals while staying genuine and delighting customers.”

We are Amberscript, a dynamic startup with the goal to make audio accessible by transforming it into text. With the best speech-recognition algorithms in the market, we save our customers hundreds of thousands of hours of manual labor and we enable thousands of people with auditory impairments (deaf and hard of hearing) to understand video and audio more easily. 

We are in the process of disrupting a very traditional market (transcription & subtitling). Now that we have achieved product-market fit, we are scaling rapidly. 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 more than 350.000 users worldwide.
