Alexa is the Amazon cloud service that powers Echo, the groundbreaking new Amazon device designed around your voice. We believe voice is the most natural user interface for interacting with the home and is fundamental to enabling the dream of the smart, connected home.
We are the Smart Home team and our charter spans all control and automation within a customer's home, ranging from "Alexa, turn on my desk light" to routines that arm and disarm security systems. We are passionate about using technology to make interpersonal communication simpler and more effective.
This role is focused on the improvement of automatic speech recognition. Are you a seasoned engineer with a passion for large-scale, production machine learning systems? Are you a scrappy builder who loves to get stuff done? Do you love doing customer-facing work? If so, we'd love to speak with you.
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.
