The Speechmatics Product Team helps shape the services, products and features that will be used by partners and customers who need speech technology to meet their business needs. It is important to us that the deliverables we provide are easy to integrate and consume into the wider solutions offered by these partners, and as a result, a detailed understanding of their business and needs is essential.
You will also be instrumental in identifying the real-world business problems of our customers and helping them to meet their challenges by translating them into products, services and features that will delight them.
