How to Become a Chatbot Developer

When you visit a website, you’ve probably had a window pop-up asking if you need help. These are chatbots. Today an increasing number of businesses are building chatbot applications in different areas, including e-commerce, customer support, advertising, and customer experience. Newer chatbots engage with humans in a more natural way through text or speech.

If you want to explore your career in the AI and ML field, chatbot development is an excellent way to kick-start your career. But how do you actually become a chatbot developer? Let’s take a look at the skills you need to become a professional chatbot developer.

What does a chatbot developer do?

A chatbot developer is a person who builds a conversational experience for users using tools such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing to mimic human conversations with real people. A chatbot developer is involved in all stages of chatbot development from architecture to implementation, analyzing data coming from bot conversations, and integrating chatbot solutions with multiple platforms.

Furthermore, chatbot developers usually work with established AI platforms, like Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, and use various programming languages, including Python, C++, and JavaScript.

What skills do I need to become a chatbot developer?

Chatbot developers should have several different skill sets. First, a chatbot developer needs to have sound knowledge of technologies as well as the programming languages they use to build chatbots. Chatbot developers also benefit from having these specific skills:

  • Familiarity with common AI libraries in Python, like NLTK
  • Experience in working with REST API calls, JSON, and systems integration
  • Ability to understand complex telecommunications network system architecture and develop system solutions to resolve complex business problems
  • Multi-language background with experience in programming languages, such as Java, PHP, Python, and Ruby
  • Knowledge of front-end technologies, such as HTML and CSS
  • Ability to optimize applications for maximum speed and scalability
  • Knowledge of digital assistants, like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant
  • Experience applying different NLP algorithms and frameworks to problems like text classification, text summarization, and knowledge extraction
  • Fundamental knowledge in Dialogflow, IBM Watson, and TensorFlow
  • Ability to integrate with social platforms, like Facebook Messenger, Slack, Telegram, and Twitter
  • Ability to integrate with ERPs, like SAP and Oracle, as well as enterprise solutions, such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Salesforce, and Zapier, and Human Resources Management Systems (HRMS)

What are the core chatbot developer job responsibilities?

While chatbot developers may be asked to handle many responsibilities as part of their job, there are key technical and non-technical responsibilities common with most jobs depending on the use case and company:

  • Design and implement use case leveraging natural language processing and text analytics
  • Design and implement processes and strategies to enhance the end-user experience
  • Interpret and analyze live transcripts and other input data to figure out user intents behind questions asked
  • Analyze real agents’ chat conversations with users to train the chatbot
  • Resolve complex technical design issues by analyzing the logs, debugging code, and finding technical issues or bugs in the process
  • Enhance effectiveness of the chatbot using advanced technologies
  • Manage data coming from chatbot conversations and analyze them
  • Identify and interpret patterns, trends, and conversational flow in complex data sets
  • Keep up with developing new learning of chatbot features, trends, and technologies

Should I get a chatbot developer degree or certification?

Education requirements are a standard part of any job description, which holds true for chatbot development as well. But not having a college degree shouldn’t affect your chances of landing a chatbot development job on Upwork.

Chatbot developers can benefit from several types of education or certifications to help position themselves more prominently on Upwork:

  • A bachelor's or master's degree in computer science, software development, statistics, web development, technical science, or equivalent
  • Certifications like Certified Chatbot Developer™, Certified Chatbot Expert™, and Building Chatbots in Python by DataCamp
