Spoken conversations - not email, not slack, not powerpoint presentations - contain the most valuable data in organizations. And while digital transformation is the largest force of change in every industry, almost all spoken conversations happen outside of that revolution.

Vowel is a conversation hub built to capture and unlock the power and insight in every company’s conversations. Use it to host meetings, tag the good stuff, and make sure team members have access to the content that really matters—via on-demand playback and one-touch transcriptions. All so you can hear the words that matter most and skip the rest.

Vowel is an early-stage software company focused on building tools that enable teams to collaborate. Our team has strong experience starting and running VC backed companies, and our investors include the same VCs who invested in leading software companies, including Stripe, Twilio, Airtable, Carta, Plaid, and Lever.

Engineering at Vowel
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on two week sprints. Each sprint begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features and ends with a demo meeting where each engineer can show off the work they've completed. Engineers typically work with our Head of Product and CTO to spec a feature, then work on the feature individually. We use Pull Requests to conduct code reviews. All engineers are also empowered to push code to production.

Technical Challenges

We are building real-time collaborative software to process, transcribe (ASR) and analyze (NLP) multi-channel audio. We leverage both public APIs/SDKs and cutting edge research.

Projects you might work on
  • Develop real-time, stream-based audio analysis pipelines to extract insight from conversations.

  • Work with real-time streaming, presence and messaging technologies such as RTP, ICE, and XMPP.

  • Develop NLP pipelines for extractive summarization, keyword/topic detection, and sentiment analysis.
