About us: Machine Learning Internship at Amberscript
“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 role of Lead Engineer
We are looking for someone who has a strong engineering background and leadership skills. Your role is to turn business requirements into execution by leading a team of 5 – 7 engineers. You will plan sprints, run retrospectives, develop the careers of the members of the team, take on a wide range of responsibilities, review and write code, and collaborate on the product roadmap. You should feel comfortable in a fast-paced environment keeping a clear head and organization, knowing what to prioritize and what to delegate.
Ideally you fit the following profile:
- MSC in Computer Science or a related field
- Senior experience as a software engineer – designing, implementing, and launching features and products
- Experience managing a team of software engineers
- Experience working with Java Spring and NodeJS is a plus
- Growth mindset in your work, yourself, and the team
- You are proactive, good at communicating in English, and a fast learner
- You are able to work in Amsterdam (or willing to move)
- You are able to start in April 2021
We offer you the chance to work in a team of passionate and driven people who work on cutting edge technology. You will lead a team and are responsible for high-quality software. You will get in contact with machine learning, AI, NLP, and have a big impact on our product developments.
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 the 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 summaries, to-do lists, and notes.
