Part-time Assistant Accountant/Bookkeeper for Tech That is Turning Heads

Help a fast-growing software startup make its magic multiply

Trint’s story:

What happens when an Emmy-winning war correspondent goes looking for a new challenge? He partners with a team of brilliant web media developers to transform the way content is extracted from recorded audio and video.

Wired magazine calls Trint “Amazing!”

Trint™ is the startup that blows manual transcription out of the water. Its browser-based platform converts any audio or video file to text in just minutes. Then Trint’s interactive editor marries audio to text, making it easy to search and polish transcripts to perfection. Hours of tedious labour are reduced to just minutes. Users can effortlessly make the content of their recordings searchable and shareable. And we have a lot more tricks up our sleeves!

After 21 months of intensive development Trint launched commercially in September 2016.

Our browser-based software has taken the media market by storm: early adopters include ESPN, Vice News, The Washington Post, Thomson Reuters and CNBC to name a few. Growth has been double digit and far ahead of projection. In May 2017 we closed a £2.4M funding round led by Hong Kong-based Horizon Labs. We also have backing from Google’s Digital News Initiative. At the Global Editors Network Summit in Vienna in June 2016 Trint won first prize in the Startups for News competition. In February 2018 Trint released a mobile app for iOS and the first version of its Enterprise platform.
