Featured Employer: Speechmatics



About Speechmatics

Our mission is to build the best speech technology for any application in any language and put speech back at the heart of communication.

Speechmatics is a speech recognition technology company – converting speech to text. Speech recognition is one of the hardest challenges to solve due to the complexity of human speech. Using neural networks combined with the very latest developments from academia and industry, Speechmatics has developed technology with world-leading accuracy.

Speechmatics has a key focus on enabling customers to surface actionable intelligence from their speech data in any language. Speechmatics has already transcribed millions of hours of audio and helped customers across a diverse range of use cases and applications to extract value from their audio source.

We love solving difficult problems because we understand that every use case is different. We believe we can truly simplify everyone’s lives and drive the overall industry to adopt speech as the main of communication.


At Speechmatics we believe in trust. This is reflected in our flexible approach to everyday working to ensure employees have a great work-life balance. We also offer a range of inclusive benefits making Speechmatics an amazing place to work.

We pride ourselves on a relaxed but productive working environment enabling both commercial success and personal development.

Development is essential to the culture at Speechmatics, so we often host lunch-and-learn sessions and attend regular academic and commercial conferences.

When we’re not working hard on our software or personal development, we regularly host company outings and events where your plus-one is welcomed to enjoy great food, great drinks and great company.

We think it’s important to give a little back too, so everyone is eligible for an extra day’s leave to undertake a charitable event, and we’ll also match your salary sacrifice to a registered charity by up to 5%.
