I run a lifestyle business for crowdsourced audio/video transcription service (https://scribie.com). We have been in business since 2008 and are seeking our 3rd full time remote employee. I'm the architect, designer and coder as well as the BD guy. I am looking to hire someone who will take over the tech side from me (i.e. CTO).
The ideal applicant would be some who's into Web App development, with good fundamentals, looking for a stable remote job which offers good work-life balance and working in the Asian/European timezone. You will be working very closely with me in the near term and independently later on.
The tech stack is plain HTML/CSS/JS on the frontend, PHP/Python/NodeJS on the backend, with MySQL database. Our budget for this position is $50K/yr. Apply via email.
Audio transcription was one of the services which was offered initially and it proved to be the most popular service. During that time we also discovered that audio transcription was a big pain point for both customers and transcribers. Customers had a hard time finding a high quality and reliable transcription service. The transcribers had to spend undue amount of effort to transcribe and struggled to maintain the quality when faced with volumes. We decided to focus on audio transcription and build a system which had quality checks and balances inbuilt into the process, minimized the manual effort required for transcription and could handle large volumes.
Scribie.com is the result of that. We developed a system which manages the process end-to-end and delivers high quality transcripts. The transcription work is done by freelance home-based transcribers and managed completely via the Internet. Our system can handle large volumes without compromising on the accuracy and quality. It manages the complexity involved in efficiently distributing the files to the transcribers, vetting their work and detecting and correcting the mistakes and making payments to them, thereby resulting in a high quality transcript and very satisfactory experience both for the customer and the transcriber. We believe that our audio transcription service is the best-in-class service that exists today.
Our system is continuously under development and we are working round the clock to improve it. We are on a mission to build the world's best transcription service and the best place to find audio transcription work. We invite you to join us in our journey.
