Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
Background Speechmatics’ versatile automatic speech recognition technology, based on decades of research and experience in neural networks, is enabling world-leading companies to power a speech-enabled future. Having already transcribed millions of hours of audio and helped customers across a diverse range of use cases and applications, the team’s mission is to build the best speech technology for any application, anywhere, in any language and put speech back at the heart of communication. In the office, we pride ourselves on a relaxed but productive environment enabling both commercial success and personal development - we often host lunch and learn sessions and attend regular academic and commercial conferences. When we’re not working hard, we regularly host company outings and events where your plus-one is welcomed to enjoy great food, great drinks and great company! We also reward ourselves occasionally with massages, and even get our bikes fixed onsite! We think it’s important to give a little back too, so everyone is eligible for some time off for charity work plus we’ll match your contribution via the Give As You Earn scheme. See more about our great perks below! We are expanding rapidly and are seeking talented people to join us as we continue to push the boundaries of speech recognition.
