Do you want to work on Alexa, the brains behind user-delighting spoken language products Amazon is building like the Amazon Echo, Amazon Dash, and Fire TV? The Entity Resolution (ER) team works on one of the core server-side components for Alexa's Natural Language Understanding (NLU) module, which provides additional context and information about the user's question to Alexa.
ER is a search problem and we use a variety of techniques to try and optimize this search to be as fast and accurate as possible. We are still a long way away from perfecting it, and are looking for curious software developers that are interested in building something that will make a difference in millions of users' daily lives.
Successful developers and scientists on our team have come from a variety of previous backgrounds but share the common qualities of being obsessed with quality, interested in scalable system design, and unafraid to dive deep into complex engineering problems which haven't yet been solved.
As a Sr. Software Engineer, you will be responsible for setting technical vision of how we build the software behind Alexa. A successful candidate will have an established background in setting product, technical, and architectural vision on building technology that enriches the customer experience at scale.
