Senior Developer VerbalizeIt
VerbalizeIt, a TechStars alumnus, delivers instant access to a global community of human translators over the phone, through Skype and via the web. We are disrupting the translation landscape by providing superior quality translation than what is delivered by machine-based applications and at a fraction of the cost of traditional physical call center solutions. In doing so, we create meaningful job opportunities for multilingual individuals across the globe who translate from the comfort of their homes for our customers in need. Our mission is to drastically improve the way in which people communicate across languages by delivering high quality translation solutions to meet the growing needs of businesses and travelers worldwide.
