Senior Software QA Engineer

| Greater Boston Area

Let me tell you about an artificial intelligence (AI) company that you probably have never heard of, but you will.  As a matter of fact, this company is the world’s largest independent AI company and it’s headquartered in the Boston area.  We operate at the intersection of customer experience and AI – two of today’s hottest and most dynamic industries.

Interactions’ mission is to create amazing customer experiences by advancing AI technology that understands and engages on a human level.  The human element of what we do not only relates to how we differentiate our AI technology, more importantly, it informs and guides our focus on our most valuable asset, our employees.  We endeavor to create opportunities for our employees to advance their skills, their interests, their passions, their careers and their lives. Like all companies, we’re not perfect, but we are committed to continually improving our employee value proposition, one that centers on competitiveness, flexibility and an appreciation for individuality.

For prospective employees, if that sounds challenging and exciting, we’d love to talk to you.
