Interested in Amazon Echo and Alexa? We've already added dozens of new capabilities to Alexa since launch, including Pandora, Google Calendar, Audible, sports scores and schedules, and more.
You might've noticed the launch of Alexa calling and messaging; but as its still day! Alexa Communications is looking for a passionate engineer to help drive our vision and create even more exciting, new features and magical experiences that foster personal interactions in the right place and at the right time.
We're working hard, having fun, making history; come join us to build cutting edge new technologies and the "communication brains in the cloud".
As a key member of the communications team you will be responsible for development and launch of new Alexa communications capabilities. You will have significant influence on our overall strategy by helping define these product features, drive the system architecture, and spearhead the best practices that enable a quality product.
The ideal candidate is clearly passionate about new opportunities and has a demonstrable track record of success in delivering new features and products. Commitment to team work, hustle, and strong communication skills (to both business and technical partners) are absolute requirements. Creating reliable, scalable, and high performance products requires exceptional technical expertise, a sound understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science, and practical experience building large-scale distributed systems. The ideal candidate has thrived and succeeded in delivering high quality technology products/services in a hyper-growth environment where priorities shift fast.
You will have an enormous opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, architecture, and implementation of cutting edge products that will be used every day by people you know. No matter what the role, we're looking for people who are passionate about innovating on behalf of customers, demonstrate a high degree of product ownership, and want to have fun while they make history.
The Alexa Communications team's mission is to bring people closer together by enabling customers to use their Alexa devices for convenient, natural, and expressive conversations with family and friends. In May 2017, we launched Alexa calling and messaging. Customers can call and message anyone who has an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa app, and make and receive video calls on the new Echo Show. We are excited to launch Drop In, a new way to communicate spontaneously with the people you care about most, both within and outside the home. Many more initiatives are underway - come join us!
