Amazon's Sponsored Ads is one of the fastest growing business domains and we are looking for a senior applied scientist with experience building complex machine learning models and writing production code. We are rapidly growing but we are still in Day 1 in terms of what yet remains to be accomplished. We are a team of highly motivated and collaborative applied scientists and software development engineers with an entrepreneurial spirit and bias for action. With the team growing at an unprecedented rate, there is broad mandate to experiment and innovate!
Our systems and algorithms operate on one of the world's largest product catalogs, matching shoppers with products - with a high relevance bar and strict latency constraints. The ads sourcing works across the spectrum of ad serving including coverage expansion, increasing utilization of tail search pages, ad relevance, ad quality, collaborative filtering, and much more. Our technology enables thousands of brands, sellers and authors to drive discovery and sales of their products at Amazon by millions of customers.
We are looking for an Applied Science Manager to build and lead a team of engineers and scientists to optimize serving ads on billions of product pages. The solutions the team create/deploy would ensure relevant ads are served to Amazon's customers. You will directly impact the shopping experience while helping our advertisers get the maximum ROI. You will be expected to demonstrate strong ownership and should be curious to learn and leverage the rich textual, image, and other contextual signals.
This role will challenge you to utilize cutting-edge machine learning techniques in the domain of predictive modeling, natural language processing (NLP), deep learning, and image recognition to deliver significant impact for the business. Ideal candidates will be able to work cross functionally across multiple stakeholders, synthesize the science needs of our business partners, develop models to solve business needs, and implement solutions in production.
