“I’ve worked at Speechmatics for a year and a half, having worked in other similar tech companies in the Cambridge area.  The thing that sets Speechmatics apart is their utter commitment to their people. The culture here is such that every employee, from entry-level right up to the leadership team, feels equally valued in contributing their energy and ideas towards the common goal – developing the best speech recognition software in the world. The finance department, although very small, is seen as a key area in the business and our work is highly valued right across the company. Our work is extremely varied, so every day is a bit different – always demanding, never boring, but with plenty of time for a coffee and a natter in the break-out area. There is a strong sense of fun which underpins everything, and there’s very much a sense of continuous improvement and community outreach. Each year we nominate a local charity to support, which includes both fundraising and ‘on the ground’ help, and the company supports this by giving each member of staff a day each year to do charitable work. Last year I spent mine doing gardening at Addenbrookes!”
