NLU Expert

Full-time position in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The company

We are AmberScript, a young startup based in Amsterdam. We are building SaaS software that enables users to automatically transcribe audio 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 thousands of journalists, scientists, students, doctors and lawyers.

The job

We offer interesting challenges in multiple areas. We want to take the text output of our speech recognition engines and further improve the accuracy, provide additional insights on the data, create a sentiment analysis or summarize information.

Preferably you fit the following profile:

  • Master’s/Ph.D. degree in Machine Learning, Data Science, NLP/NLU, Computer Science, or related fields
  • Experience working with Bash, Python, Keras, Tensorflow, NLP, NLU
  • You have a strong motivation to drive impact by making product/engine improvements
  • 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 your work and are responsible for high quality models and clean code. You will get in contact with speech recognition, 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 Herengracht.

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 into summaries, to-do lists and notes.
