Alexa is the Amazon cloud service that powers Echo, the groundbreaking new Amazon device designed around your voice. The Alexa UnSpun team leverages natural language understanding, machine learning, and crowdsourcing to enable Alexa to answer customer questions across an ever-broadening set of subjects. We are looking for a talented Software Development Engineer to help us make Alexa more interesting and conversational.
UnSpun is highly collaborative, fast moving, and fun team. As a member of the team you will be responsible for leading the development and launch of new features. You will also influence our overall strategy, contribute to system architecture, mentor and be mentored by other engineers, and help establish best practices that ensure a high quality product.
The ideal candidate has a solid understanding of software design principles, a demonstrated track record of delivering new features and products, and passion for innovating on behalf of customers. They don’t need to have expertise in natural language understanding or machine learning but should have curiosity about it. They value collaboration, data-driven decision making, learning, and can comfortably communicate with others, in both technical and non-technical roles.
