Jobs at AssemblyAI

We're an AI company, building powerful models for developers, startups, and enterprises - and exposing those models through simple APIs and good docs.

Today, we focus on Speech - researching and building advanced models for automatic transcription and automatic understanding of audio data. Customers use our APIs for an amazingly diverse set of use cases - from basic automatic transcription, to content moderation of audio/video data, to full-blown conversational intelligence applications. We've been growing at break-neck speed, and are already processing millions of audio files with our APIs every single day. We have ambitious goals for the future - and are looking for talented and hungry people to join our small, but growing, team!
