Full Stack Developer


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 offer interesting challenges in multiple areas and are looking for someone who can quickly learn new technologies and adapt to new requirements. 
You will take ownership of multiple NodeJS microservices as well as developing new ones while making sure to write high quality and secure code. You will write front end components using ReactJS and help migrate our AngularJS frontend to React. 

Preferably you fit the following profile:


Master of Science in computer science or a related field
2-3 years experience working on production ready Javascript code
Experience working with NodeJS, ReactJS
Experience with Java Spring is a plus
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
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. We value taking ownership and setting ourselves ambitious goals while staying genuine and delighting customers. Are you someone who is going the extra-mile to achieve your and the company's goals?
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 which makes writing abundant by automatically transforming all audio and video into summaries, to-do lists, notes and subtitles.
