Senior IVR Developer - Versay

| Chicago

The human voice is capable of conveying nuances and meaning that just can’t be expressed through clicks and text messages. And for that reason voice-interactions have always had a special power to shape your perception and experiences. At Versay, we believe in the unique power of voice interactions to create more expressive, more intimate, and more efficient interpersonal interactions. Our experts work with Fortune 500 companies to help them serve their customers more efficiently and effectively through the use of various voice technologies. From basic network services, to state of the art IP telephony, to cutting edge real-time analytics, Versay Solutions makes millions of voice interactions better every day.

What we are looking for

We believe that all voice interactions have a special power to create great customer experiences even when those interactions are with automated systems. Automated voice experiences should be intuitive and efficient while maintaining a personal feel. Vail Voice Application developers practice this belief every day when they create compelling user experiences through intelligent voice browser applications.
