Job Description

Ever dreamed of making bots have natural conversations? Do you happen to have experience successfully delivering AI/NLP experiences into production to make that more than a dream? If you do, we may just have your dream job waiting!

We in the Dynamics Virtual Agent team (formerly project Customer Care Intelligence-Toronto) are currently building a SaaS product to easily enable companies to digitally transform their customer care through the power of AI. Through our Virtual Customer Service Agent and our Insights analytics product we will enable customer service teams to create and maintain high quality customer service bots to help customers through chat & voice; all without the need for AI experts, Data Scientists or programmers.

Listen to Satya talking about our work:

Having created major bespoke customer service chat bots as part of Project Toronto (where we have bots in production, handling millions of engaged conversations a month) we have learned that making content creation and maintenance easy for the subject matter experts, is key to create and maintain the high quality content that is crucial for great customer experiences. We couple intuitive dialog creation (and novel dynamic dialog approaches) with intuitive analytics to enable non data scientists to easily understand which topics are impactful candidates for automation, how topics are performing and even which support topics cannot be confidently differentiated by the AI model and what to do about it.

The Dynamics Virtual Agent team is looking for a rock star full-stack principal engineer who is deeply passionate about building services at scale and unleashing the power of AI to broad enterprise audiences.
