Job summary
Looking for a job where your work can have direct impact on multiple big industries? Passionate about machine learning? Come join us in building a new AWS service from the grounds up!

AWS Artificial Intelligence group is democratizing machine learning by giving everyone an easy and API driven access to complex machine learning technologies. The group own several successful machine learning services like SageMaker, Recognition, Textract, Personalize etc. We are developing a new AWS service to enable data sharing at scale. This new initiative is in a very nascent space, where you will be able to Think Big and innovate on behalf of customers in a start-up like environment. This will help advertising, healthcare, and finance organizations who often collaborate with external partners on joint data analyses to improve their marketing, clinical research, and investment decisions.

In this role, you will be responsible for leading a team of strong engineers, and continuing to develop them. You will need to constantly challenge the boundaries of AWS service. You will draw from deep and broad technical expertise to mentor engineers and provide leadership on complex technical issues. You will manage some of our most strategic technical projects, deliver large scalable systems, design new software systems at the cutting edge of machine learning technology, and have a significant bottom-line impact on our business and competitive position.

This role within AWS AI presents a unique and rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor within a fast growing business and help shape the technology, product and the business. You will be part of the larger technical leadership community that forms the core of the AWS AI organization. You will play a critical role in business planning, work closely with senior executives, influence our long-term technical and business strategy, and ultimately enable us to deliver innovative new solutions rapidly.

A successful candidate will bring deep technical and software expertise, strong business acumen and judgment, a capability to build and grow a talented team, desire to have an industry wide impact, and ability to work within a fast moving, startup environment to rapidly deliver services that have a broad business impact. You should have a passion for delivery, drive for excellence, and penchant for quality. You will practice development management practices such as scrum and make sure your team is productive solving technical challenges in system design, distributed computing, and full-stack services.

Great opportunity to take a new launched service with a lot of customer interest to the next level and work on challenging deep learning and distributed systems problems.

Join the group that Swami Sivasubramanian and Alex Smola are building to make Machine Learning accessible to everyone via AWS. This will be a game changer in our industry. Make history with us.

We are driven by the excitement of building technologies, inventing products, and providing services that change lives. We embrace new ways of doing things, make decisions quickly, and are not afraid to fail. We have the scope and capabilities of a large company, and the spirit and heart of a small one. Together, Amazonians research and develop new technologies from Amazon Web Services to Alexa on behalf of our customers: shoppers, sellers, content creators, and developers around the world. Our mission is to be Earth's most customer-centric company. Our actions, goals, projects, programs, and inventions begin and end with the customer top of mind. You'll also hear us say that at Amazon, it's always "Day 1." What do we mean? That our approach remains the same as it was on Amazon's very first day - to make smart, fast decisions, stay nimble, invent, and focus on delighting our customers.
