Are you excited about building Robotics AI technology that works seamlessly with and around people? The Robotics AI team at Amazon is building high-performance, real-time robotic systems that can perceive, learn and act intelligently alongside humans, at Amazon scale.
The Robotics AI software team is looking for an experienced, highly technical software development manager to join our team of full-stack engineers. We are building the core infrastructure and tools that serve as the backbone of our robotic applications, enabling roboticists, machine learning scientists, and software engineers to collaborate and deploy and operate systems in the lab and in the field.
As a software development manager, you will build and mentor an exceptional, diverse team of engineers, and work with our partner engineering and science teams in generating and executing organization-wide technical roadmaps and solutions. You will thrive in a highly collaborative, creative, analytical, and fast-paced environment in solving problems while creating common infrastructure and tools for your user community that will accelerate their development and enable Robotics AI to deliver world-class, industry-leading products.
You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in and get the job done. As a software manager and leader, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance the business needs versus technical constraints. The ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected. Maturity, judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential to success in this role.
The right candidate will possess a strong software management background and a well-rounded technical background in software and hardware systems. We are looking for broad, curious candidates who can dive deep into technical spaces related to any of the following areas: computer vision, machine learning, robotic control, simulation, or real-time software.
