Internship Period - January to June 2019
Zendesk builds software for better customer relationships. It empowers organisations to improve customer engagement and better understand their customers. Zendesk products are easy to use and implement. They give organizations the flexibility to move quickly, focus on innovation, and scale with their growth. And it's a great user experience!One of the ways we enable great user experiences is through fun surprise and delight features that allow our customers to show their personality when they're communicating with their customers.
There's currently no way for agents to liven up their chats with their customers using emojis. You will work on building out an emoji solution that is scalable, intuitive, and addictive. You'll need to understand how various clients interpret emojis and determine a strategy for how they'll be used across multiple platforms, including browsers, mobile apps, and APIs. The goal is to have a simple and fun emoji picker that agents will want to use to help improve both the customer experience and customer satisfaction scores.
Scope of Work
You will work closely with engineering, user experience designers, visual designers, and data analysts to make data-aware empirical decisions around:
What clients we can support with a native unicode experience
Whether we should build out an emoji library
How to identify and measure success
Competitive and market research
What incremental improvements can be made in future releases
What the scope should be given real world engineering and business constraints
How to build and defend a business plan
How to launch a product to thousands of customers
Time permitting, you can work closely with a machine learning team to figure out a way to make automated emoji suggestions
Familiarity with APIs
Good user experience and design sense
