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 you'll do

As a Senior Product Designer at Happy Scribe you will take over a part of the job that André, our CEO and co-founder has done since starting Happy Scribe. Some of the things that you will be doing.

  • Fully autonomous from discovery to delivery; you will be in charge of pursuing user research and converting it into delightful product user experiences.
  • Be the center of user-empathy in the company; you'll be the bridge between support, engineering, sales.
  • You have the roadmap under control, from discovering high-impact problems to solve, to measuring the success & failures of new releases.
  • Productise and standardise the transcription and subtitle market with consistent experiences that impact 10,000s of people.

What you'll bring

We are looking for exceptional individuals to join our team and believe that they can come from anywhere. Extensive CVs and endless cover letters don't impress us. Driven people that are skin in the game do.

  • You have a clear design methodology. You know where you're going and you have a plan A, B and C on how to get there.
  • You have the communication skills to help set up roadmaps and make strategy come to life.
  • You truly enjoy reading support tickets, jumping on sales calls and running unexpected customer interviews.
  • You take ownership of your work and responsibility for every detail. When something is off it's almost offensive to you.
  • You have a strong entrepreneurial mindset: you enjoy being scrappy and aren’t scared of showing your work early.
  • You have worked on a complex UX project that had a big impact on the product, for example, redesigning an onboarding flow or a new feature.

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.

Interview Process

  • Meeting with André to better understand your experiences and motivations.
  • Deep-dive interview with Shane and Marc.
