Voice-driven AI experiences are finally becoming a reality and Amazon's Alexa cloud service and Echo devices are at the forefront of this latest technology wave.
As a software engineer in the Alexa Experience team, you will help drive this innovation by developing new features that take advantage of the latest Alexa features and Echo device capabilities.
You will be responsible for developing cloud services to support these features, integrating with other Amazon and third-party services and device software as required. Strong collaboration skills are a must.
You will ensure that Alexa almost never drops her end of the conversation, delivering services that respond with minimal latency at Amazon scale. Being one of our first engineers on a newly formed team, you will also be capable of selecting, defining, integrating and/or implementing the foundational infrastructure that will support the development and operation of our cloud services.
Most importantly, rather than being a specialist in any particular area of server-side technology, you are more of a generalist. We're delivering new customer experiences, requiring different technology solutions everyday- you'll need to bring a big toolkit to keep up.
This role will sit in our new headquarters in Northern Virginia, where Amazon will invest $2.5 billion dollars, occupy 4 million square feet of energy efficient office space, and create at least 25,000 new full-time jobs. Our employees and the neighboring community will also benefit from the associated investments from the Commonwealth including infrastructure updates, public transportation improvements, and new access to Reagan National Airport.
By working together on behalf of our customers, we are building the future one innovative product, service, and idea at a time. Are you ready to embrace the challenge? Come build the future with us.
Amazon is an electronic commerce and cloud computing company.
