  • Job Description

    We are a newly established innovative Research Center situated in beautiful Southern Germany (Tübingen). The new site focuses on computer vision, machine learning and causality in a number of application fields at Amazon. If you get excited by the prospect of helping shape strategy and culture of a new Amazon site and being a core contributor to great products, then we may have the perfect role for you! Join us as a Applied Scientist for causality. Work with top researchers and help us build advanced technologies for Amazon as well as a new site people truly love working with/at.

    Major responsibilities:
    - Help grow the new site and attract great talent outside and within Amazon over the next years
    - Put "new to the world technologies" into production
    - Work hands-on with the team to have an impact in the real world
    The new Tübingen site is a significant investment by Amazon in great talent and was featured extensively in the press:
