Technical Solution Design Consultant (Conversational AI)

Our client, a New York-based start-up, are looking to bring onboard a Technical Solution Design Consultant to join their talented, international team. They're creating conversational AI for customer service built for scale, developing a solution for inefficient chatbots and poor customer experience scores by building a full-stack platform with military-grade security.

Why you should join:

  • They are a growing team of delivery experts, designers, engineers and data scientists focused on creating a communication platform allowing for intimate yet scalable conversations.
  • They have a close-knit, high-performing Customer Success team that works collaboratively with the Customer Experience (Product Implementation) and Product teams to ensure the success of all our customers.
  • They’re passionate about solving our customer’s most complex problems through intelligent conversational design and advanced automation integration.
  • You’ll be given the freedom to develop new processes and bring fresh ideas to the table, while receiving the support and guidance from an experienced management team.

What we’re looking for:

Most importantly a Solution Designer must have the technical chops to create transactional experiences by leveraging APIs/microservices and working with Integration Developers on the team to build integrations to backend systems.

What you'll do:

  • Work on multiple (3-4) customer accounts simultaneously from kickoff to production deployment.
  • Design and develop conversational solutions, leveraging rich functionality and NLU capabilities native to their platform, that achieve our customer’s business goals.
  • Own the overall solution design process, determining the appropriate integration logic, authentication protocols, and contextual/conditional logic necessary to deliver rich conversational experiences.
  • Work closely with both business and IT stakeholders within our customers to understand user experience and integration requirements.
  • Document integration requirements and provide to Integration Developers within the Customer Experience team to develop necessary backend systems via REST/SOAP API requests.
  • Work with Product team to review and prioritize customer feature requests, advocating on the customer’s behalf.
  • Collaborate with Engineering team internally to support any custom development work or integrations outside of the platform.
  • Apply learnings from across Customer implementations and institute best practices for design and integration of individual use cases for our customers.
  • Engage in knowledge sharing within the Customer Experience team and contribute to a growing repository of pre-build Starter Packs for our conversational solutions.
