Alexa is the groundbreaking, cloud-based intelligent agent that powers Echo and other devices designed around your voice. Our team is creating the science and technology behind Alexa. Come join us! Our goal is to delight our customers by adding new features to Alexa and by improving the accuracy of our existing speech recognition and natural language processing systems.
As a Research Scientist on our team, you will be responsible for the natural language understanding models in one of our feature domains. Your work will directly impact our customers in the form of novel products and services that make use of speech and language technology. You will:
* Own the customer-facing machine learning and deterministic models for a specific domain of features, * Build and release new models that elevate the customer experience and track the impact over time, * Propose new modeling solutions and run experiments to prove their efficacy, * Collaborate with colleagues from science, engineering, and business backgrounds, * Ensure data quality throughout all stages of acquisition and processing, including such areas as data sourcing/collection, ground truth generation, normalization, transformation, cross-lingual alignment/mapping, etc, * Work with engineers to develop efficient data querying infrastructure for both offline and online use cases
