Job summary
Are you interested in building the next generation AI based automation for Alexa? Our team is in the early phases of building the NextGen Automation for Alexa NU (Natural understanding). We are building automation infrastructure that leverages cutting-edge serverless and distributed cloud technology to support billions of customer interactions. We are also inventing new ways to build AI based intelligent automation and self-learning capabilities for Alexa with the use of state-of-the-art algorithms, which will help in bringing Alexa AI’s vision of the “age of self” to fruition. You can read more about Alexa AI’s vision of the “age of self” in the article by Prem Natarajan, Vice President, Alexa AI – Come join us to help Alexa AI enter into the “age of self”.

Alexa’s AI platform provides ML building blocks to build premier conversational experiences for millions of customers. We believe speech to be a pervasive and superior mode of interacting with automated systems and are committed to maintaining our industry-leading position in this space. Our mission is to empower all external stakeholders to extend Alexa’s magical experience with innovative applications across domains. For supporting the growth of our rapidly expanding third party eco-system, we are building ML stack to offer state-of-the-art abstractions to developers, so they can deliver immersive voice experiences with ease. Our stack leverages innovative ML algorithms and datasets to build and train 1P and 3P application models to achieve best-in-class accuracy and recognition rates. To accomplish this, we work closely with some of the best ML Research and Applied Scientists in the field.
