Hello ✨

We're Happy Scribe, a 100% bootstrapped startup based in Barcelona.

We offer transcription and subtitling services by combining AI with the expertise of language professionals to create a 5-star product. We're working on one of the fundamental problems of this decade: speech-to-text technology.

We're just 10 people at the moment, but growing fast and profitable and we're building the team thoughtfully and with a lot of care.

What will be your mission as an Growth Engineer at Happy Scribe?

  • Run growth experiments from start to finish to optimising key user growth metrics. You'll wear many hats during the creation process while you conceive, design, implement, ship and maintain them.
  • Localisation - Happy Scribe aims to be a global transcription and subtitling platform. You will be in charge of localising the Happy Scribe website in all major languages.
  • SEO Implementation - You will work closely with our SEO Manager on implementing a multilingual content strategy at scale.
  • Free Tools - Research and develop free tools to attract more top-funnel traffic and create awareness. For example, in May we have released a set of tools for subtitles (17K+ sessions per month).

This might be for you if...

  • You have experience creating websites in Rails or equivalent frameworks.
  • You have experience in building side projects and monetizing them..
  • Deep understanding of technical SEO and the tools that power marketing automation, experimentation, personalization, attribution, and analytics.
  • You are data-driven and kind of a data-geek: clear understanding of data, analytics, metrics and statistics.
  • You care a great deal about your work. When something is off it's almost offensive to you.
  • You are creative. As Peter Thiel would say "founders discover value in unexpected places", they don't engage in competition, but they go around the corner to find a huge door. You live behind that corner.
  • You're DRIVEN.

Hiring Philosophy

We’re excited about people who are already experts in their fields as well as people who are not yet specialised but show high potential. By “high potential” we mean people who have demonstrated the ability to ramp up quickly in a new domain and produce results.

We are not credential-driven—rather, we want to understand your unique background and what you can contribute to our team.


Happy Scribe is an equal opportunity employer. We welcome all applications from all people and all walks of life.
