  • Job Description

    Machine Learning and AI are changing how Amazon operates, from drones to stores without checkout lines, and enables Amazon to launch new devices, such as Alexa. Core AI is Amazon's central science team working on tools to democratize machine learning, kick-starting new teams developing ML-based products and betting on a small number of long-term projects with substantial research risk.

    The team is global, composed of a balanced mix of scientists and engineers who push the boundaries of machine intelligence and work on tangible problems that directly impact customers. The team is also part of the Apache MXNet developer community. Apache MXNet is an open-source deep-learning framework, endorsed by Amazon Web Service (AWS).

    As a Senior Machine Learning Scientist, you are recognized for your expertise, advice team members on a range of machine learning topics, and work closely with software engineers to drive the delivery of end-to-end modelling solutions. Your work focuses on ambiguous problem areas where the business problem or opportunity may not yet be defined. The problems that you take on require scientific breakthroughs.

    You take a long-term view of the business objectives, product roadmaps, technologies, and how they should evolve. You drive mindful discussions with customers, engineers, and scientist peers. You bring perspective and provide context for current technology choices make recommendations on the right modelling and component design approach to achieve the desired customer experience/business outcome.

    You understand that not all problems are new (or require new algorithms). You show good judgment when making trade-offs between short-term customer, business needs and long-term technology needs. Your solutions are built on best practices and push the boundaries of your field. You make things simpler. You are able to build consensus on larger projects and split the work into parallel tasks that can be performed by you and others.
