Operations Manager

Full-time position in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Help to build a scalable, customer, team, and process-centric operational organization at Amberscript to match our ambitions of expansion, growth & internationalization.

About us: 

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 350.000 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. Currently, we are looking for a driven and entrepreneurial spirit that will take the responsibility to coordinate and improve the daily operations of Amberscript.
