Who is Interactions?
Interactions, LLC is the world's largest independent AI company. We operate at the intersection of customer experience and AI - two of today's most innovative and dynamic industries. Since 2004, we've helped leading companies like MetLife, Citi, Shutterfly, and LifeLock have millions of successful conversations, resulting in saving operational cost and increasing productivity.
Interactions' 5-year vision is to accelerate a transition from today's frustrating and uninspired customer service experiences into amazing conversational engagements! Allowing customers to communicate in their own words and on their channel of choice, to accomplish tasks, all without having to go through an agent. In doing this via our conversational AI engine, our customers benefit from dramatically improved customer experience and increased customer engagement, while also saving significant and demonstrable operational expenses.
Job Description
