Full Stack Engineer


About us:

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

We are Amberscript, a dynamic startup founded in 2017 and based in Amsterdam. We are building SaaS software that enables users to automatically transcribe audio & video into text using speech recognition. AI/algorithms and our own web text editor to bring it to 100% accuracy. 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 more than 500.000 users worldwide.

We are currently in the process of disrupting a very traditional market (transcription & subtitling). Now that we have achieved product-market fit, we are scaling rapidly. Our vision is to make all audio readable, accessible, and analyzable.

The job

We offer interesting challenges in multiple areas and are looking for someone who can quickly learn new technologies. You will be responsible for building and improving NodeJS microservices as well as working with live streaming applications using WebSockets. You will also work on the front end, but the focus, in the beginning, is on back-end development.

Preferably you fit the following profile:

  • Master of Science in computer science or a related field
  • 1+ year experience working on production-ready code
  • Experience working with NodeJS
  • Experience in QA testing, writing automated tests
  • Experience working with ReactJS is a plus
  • Experience in WebSockets is a plus
  • You have a strong motivation to learn new things and deliver clean code
  • You are ambitious, proactive, good in communicating in English, and a fast learner

We offer you the chance to work in a team of passionate and driven people who work on cutting edge technology. By working at AmberScript, you will get in contact with machine learning, speech recognition, and NLP.

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

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 transcripts, subtitles, summaries, to-do lists, and notes.
