Job Description

Amazon Echo and Alexa are magical: you can ask for any music and it plays instantly. But it's still Day 1 for the voice-enabled music experiences, and we're looking for some Language Engineers to help us make it even better. As a member of the Amazon Music Natural Language Understanding (NLU) team, you will be responsible for leading the effort to invent and improve the ways that customers can ask for what they want to hear in Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Music or in their Amazon Music library. You will create new Amazon Music voice features that will allow customers to discover new music and get to the music they would like to hear.

The ideal candidate is interested in being part of a nimble team, passionate about innovating for customers, and has a demonstrable track record of success in delivering new features and products. A commitment to team work, hustle, and strong communication skills (to both business and technical partners) are absolute requirements. The person has an attention to detail to deliver solutions that delight customers.

We are looking for a Language Engineer with experience in linguistic annotation, ontologies, taxonomies and/or semantic schemas. In this role, you will support new feature development by extending existing annotation schemas to cover new concepts.

Specifically, the Language Engineer will:

* Design the natural language processing components of new Alexa experiences and features by writing grammars and annotation specifications
* Collaborate with scientists and other Language Engineers in developing coherent and comprehensive meaning representation frameworks
* Lead annotation efforts to test and solidify new representations
* Provide day-to-day coordination of data collection efforts, including planning, scheduling, and reporting
* Measure and analyze accuracy and throughput of annotated data
* Handle competing requests from a range of data customers
* Write grammars and build FSTs
* Use modeling tools to bootstrap new functionalities
