Purpose

At Papercup, we are creating a system to make the world's content available in any language.

About us

At Papercup, we’re on a mission to make the world’s videos watchable in any language. We’ve invented a system using machine learning and AI that automates large parts of the dubbing process and uses synthetic voices that sounds like humans. This allows the likes of BBC, Discovery, HSBC, and Canva to reach a new global audience by localizing their video content faster than ever before.

We’re backed by leading venture funds, world-renowned angel investors, and global media groups. We are driven, curious and passionate – our company culture is imperative to us, and we set a high bar for those who join the team. 

Flexible working approach

🤸‍♀️ We have a hybrid-working model, we allow our employees to combine onsite and working from home as you see fit, usually around 2 days in the office. We leave it up to you to determine your own work week.

🎉 We are a social bunch, and have team breakfasts on a Thursday, office drinks, and quarterly monthly events.

🏝 We strongly encourage you to take holidays to rest and reflect, that's why we opted for an unlimited policy.

🎟 We will cover all application fees and legal advice fees for working visas, support you through the full process and contribute towards any further visas required.

🏋️ We have an online trainer who runs weekly workouts for us.

🐶 We love dogs at Papercup, we even have our own dedicated Paper-pup channel!

⏳ Our options give you equity and ownership in the company. Salary is important to everyone, of course, but options give you the right to buy shares in Papercup in the future, letting you partake in the upside of the company as we grow and grow and grow!

🚲 For you keen cyclists, we have a scheme to make cycling to work more affordable.

📕 While industry events and cutting edge conferences are great, we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity –and time – to learn new skills and keep up to date with the latest developments in our respective fields all year round. You can take a whole week that you can dedicate entirely to levelling up your knowledge or skills.

🏥 Because health and wellness are super important to us, we have health insurance or a wellness bonus where you can chose what you would prefer. Whether it's Vitality, or the bonus, the choice of yours!

"I love how management leads by example in terms of unlimited holiday, taking time off, and really disconnecting, which helps to send the message to everyone in the company that this is how we expect time off to look."

Approach to diversity & inclusion

At Papercup, we genuinely strive for a transparent environment where all voices are heard and welcomed.

We also strive for an environment where people can show up as their full selves each day and can contribute to their best ability.

Papercup is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce, and while it should go without saying, eliminating unlawful discrimination.

This is not only the right thing to do, but it is also fundamental to the success of Papercup, and we care deeply about getting this right.

What do we think of Papercup?

We loved chatting to Papercup and learning about the business and their incredible flexible offering. With office space in Shoreditch, they are offering a fantastic hybrid offering. When we went through the Flexification process, Papercup's transparency and commitment to flexibility is admirable.

If you're looking for a career in AI offering enhanced parental leave and unlimited annual leave, Papercup is the place for you.

Meet who might be hiring you

At Papercup, we are fully dedicated not only to the health and wealth of our employees, but the continuous learning and development. We strive to be the best in what we do! We don't just say it, we really mean it.

We run bi-weekly Papercup universities where you can learn about anything from "How computers work 💻 " to "The art and science of burgers 🍔." This is how we encourage everyone to share there knowledge about what really interests them inside and outside of work, being your self at work is a huge part of out culture.

We celebrate our success and of course our mistakes, otherwise how would we learn, right?

We are a friendly and social bunch, team events, get togethers, Thursday breakfast, drinks in the office, and team lunches help us all stay connected. We have colleagues from around the world (19 countries and counting) , to be exact.

Papercup is a company that is truly inclusive!
