Do you want to be part of a new team at Amazon that is making history? Do you want to build technology and new science that millions of people will use? Are you excited about working on large scale Named Entity Recognition (NER), Parsing, Natural Language Understanding (NLU), and Natural Language Processing (NLP) in general?
We in Amazon search are embarking on a multi-year journey to rethink the shopping experience on Amazon starting with a solid understanding of the customer's shopping mission based on their search query and using that to present products that they will like, view, and purchase. We are challenging the established idea that a list of results is the best experience when customers are looking to shop for the right product and that we should be designing shopping pages rather than search pages. But all that begins with a deep and accurate understanding of the query and very high precision matches of the query to products in the catalog. And we believe that the latest advances in deep learning technology can help us realize our team's long-term vision of making shopping effortless on Amazon.
We are looking for an Applied Scientist to work on improving Amazon Search using NLP and Deep Learning (DL) technology. This is a highly visible role with a huge impact on Amazon customers and business. As a part of this role you will be developing solutions for NER, parsing, NLU, etc. If you are tired of building NLP solutions only for English, you will be able to put your skills to test for many languages including but not limited to German, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch, etc. The ideal candidate will be an expert in the area of Machine Learning (ML) in general and NLP specifically and will have a strong record of delivering results.
This is a position on a new Search NLP team in Seattle, WA. We are moving fast to change the way Amazon search works. As an Applied Scientist, you will help tackle a variety of technical challenges. Together with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and product managers you will work on building products with NLP/ML/DL at its core. Along the way, you'll learn a ton, have fun and make a positive impact on millions of people.
