The Smart Home organization is looking for a software development engineer (SDE II) with an interest in voice technology and machine-learning (ML).
As a member of the Spoken Language Understanding (SLU) team, you would work on building new voice experiences for customers to use with Alexa and smart devices in their homes. We blend a variety of disciplines, such as rule-based authoring (FSTs, tokenizers) and statistical/ML modeling, to turn new Smart Home feature concepts into rich-voice experiences for customers.
In this role, you will own the production machine learning models behind Alexa Smart Home. You will be responsible for the implementation, testing, and release of our models, both for new product features and for existing features. You will also have opportunities to build novel A.I. sub-systems beyond those associated with speech recognition. To be successful in this role, you must possess a startup mentality, and you must be prepared to go above and beyond for the customer.
In addition to building new voice features, you will be part of the Smart Home Expansion Services (SHXS) organization and work along side managers, developers, researchers who are developing mechanisms to scale Alexa and Smart Home to customers around the world. You will work with senior leaders, principal engineers and AI specialists to define new approaches for voice model authoring and improvements to the voice experience.
