Job Description

Are you passionate about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning? Are you passionate about helping customers build solutions leveraging the state-of-the-art AI/ML/DL tools, Want to enable adoption of large models across teams within Amazon to solve challenging Deep Learning problems!

Come join us and unleash full capability of large model training!

The M5 team is engaged in a multi-year effort to build semantic representations of Amazon-specific entities such as ASINs, queries, customers, sellers, shopping sessions and vend them to machine learning (ML) systems across Amazon. The representations we build will be multi-entity, multi-modal, multi-lingual, multi-locale, and multi-task (M5), and will utilize all available data for each entity, preferably using their combination. The key advantage that the representations will provide is that they will be label efficient, that is, it will be easy to adapt them to a new task using only a handful of labeled data. Moreover, it will be possible to compress the model generating the representations to a lean and efficient model with a small number of parameters for online deployment with tight latency constraints. Initially, we will focus on a subset of applications from Search, Catalog, and Ads, and eventually expand to all major Amazon services and experiences.

At Amazon, we’ve been investing deeply in artificial intelligence for over 20 years, and many of the capabilities customers experience in our products are driven by machine learning.’s recommendations engine is driven by machine learning (ML), as are the paths that optimize robotic picking routes in our fulfillment centers. Our supply chain, forecasting, and capacity planning are also informed by ML algorithms. Alexa is fueled by Natural Language Understanding and Automated Speech Recognition deep learning; as is Prime Air, and the computer vision technology in our new retail experience, Amazon Go. We have thousands of engineers at Amazon committed to machine learning and deep learning, and it’s a big part of our heritage.

Amazon Search is looking for a Sr Data Scientist (ML /AI), who will be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for helping technology customers internal and external to design solutions that leverage our deep learning large scale search services. As part of the team, you will work closely with customers to enable large-scale use cases, design ML pipelines, and drive the adoption of AI/ML platforms. You will interact with other Data Scientist , Applied Science teams and engineers in the field, providing guidance on their customer engagements, and you will develop white papers, blogs, reference implementations, and presentations to enable customers to fully leverage AI/ML for large model development and training. Additionally, as the voice of the customer, you will work closely with the service teams, and submit product feature requests to drive the platform forward.

You must have deep technical experience working with technologies related to artificial intelligence, machine learning and/or deep learning. A strong mathematics and statistics background is preferred in addition to experience building complex machine learning models. You will be familiar with the ecosystem of software vendors in the AI/ML space, and will leverage this knowledge to help Amazon customers in their selection process
