Speech scientist

Fulltime 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

In order to grow further, we are currently optimizing our speech to text engines as well as creating new ones in other languages. We are also looking at options to expand our product portfolio to other use cases of speech to text. Currently we are looking for a speech scientist that can help in doing so. Preferably you fit the following profile:

  • You have broad experience with machine learning, and deep learning in particular (CNN, RNN, LSTM and autoencoders).

  • You have a MSc. / PhD degree in an analytical field, for instance computer science, mathematics and econometrics.

  • You get excited by solving complex problems and taking on big challenges.

  • You are able to write clean and robust code and have hands-on experience in Python and preferably Java.

  • You are able to work in Amsterdam (or willing to move).

  • Preferably you have experience with speech to text engines.

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 in our speech to text engines and are responsible for high quality code and great product experiences. You will get in contact with machine learning, AI and 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 and party hard and are passionate about what we do: change the world of transcription services. We are based in a great accelerator in Amsterdam.

At AmberScript, we are proud to always be thinking ‘better and bigger’. 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.
