Discover how Welcome to the Jungle dramatically reduced editing time by 50% by integrating Happy Scribe's transcription and subtitling technologies into their video production workflow, enhancing collaboration and content quality.

Welcome to the Jungle (WttJ) is an innovative job board platform that combines traditional job openings and high-quality company culture videos with independent career advice. The burden of time-consuming editing and coordinating freelancers had become so challenging that it began to jeopardize WttJ content development efforts.

As a Production Operations Team Lead, Quentin Guestin supervises a team responsible for crafting engaging video content that showcases corporate culture to potential job candidates. He collaborates with six staff members and multiple freelancers to produce the client profile films and pictures.

Under Guestin's supervision, WttJ focuses on creating content that sets it apart from traditional job boards. By showcasing company culture and teams through high-quality video content, WttJ has distinguished and solidified its position in the job market industry.

The Goal: Spend Less Time on Editing Subtitles

For Welcome to the Jungle, the subtitling process used to be quite laborious. Freelancer management and quality control were especially cumbersome. Quentin’s team didn’t have enough in-house capacity to check the subtitles' quality properly, which allowed for mistakes to happen regularly. This resulted in creating a big pool of freelancers that needed managing and an endless amount of different subtitle versions that screamed for a simpler, more accurate subtitling process for their company's video content.

The introduction of Happy Scribe into their workflow marked a turning point, offering a much-needed solution that saved time and resources, allowing the focus to shift back to creating top-notch content for their clients.

Transforming Post-Production Workflows

The productivity of Quentin’s internal team got a boost right away after integrating the Happy Scribe into the post-production workflow.

With the new, streamlined process in place, the team completes a subtitling project in less than 4 days. The team can now spend more time on doing what they do best: creating engaging videos for their clients.
