    Job Summary

    As a Content Designer, you will own and influence the design of AI chat bot solutions with Fortune 100 companies, designing the user experience for web/mobile-based virtual assistants (VAs). You will work on a multi-disciplinary team of colleagues and domain experts to discover user requirements, match these needs against customer goals, and build and optimize VAs from the ground up. Among other activities, you will validate functionality choices, design intuitive and adaptive dialog flows, build dialogs, anticipate user responses, and define and optimize grammars. You will use proprietary platforms to build, design, and test VAs. Content Designers are expected to lead projects alongside a Project Manager and must be comfortable guiding the internal and client teams to the best outcome. You will need to learn about user populations and work effectively with customers on each engagement, while simultaneously working toward the customer's financial goals and remaining the authority on best practices in user-centered design.

    • Mentor and coordinate the work of related Content, Development, and computational linguist roles
    • Maintain familiarity with other products to ensure thought and design leadership
