Job summary
Alexa Speech is building the future of voice enabled interactions for our customers not only in Echo family, but also in 3rd party devices and applications. We believe voice is the most natural user interface for interacting with technology across many domains, so we are inventing the future.

The Role:
We are looking for an experienced Data Engineer (DE) to join our team for development of our data frameworks and have direct impact on how our customers interact with Alexa. As a DE on this team, you will be leading infrastructure development, automation frameworks, and generation of datasets to be used for reporting, analysis, and insights. You will work with multiple Data Scientists, Software Engineers, Product Managers and Program Managers to design and develop new ways for accelerating compelling experiences in Alexa Speech.

You'll measure your success by the quality of your execution, the pace of innovation you help drive, and the increased satisfaction you deliver. You’ll write code and build big data systems, but you’ll also mentor engineers around you and do whatever needs to be done for the team and product initiative to succeed. This role is highly visible and impacting, across Alexa Speech.

Are you the person that can help in building next generation of infrastructure frameworks and services that enable Alexa to go bigger? Are you ready to make a difference at a company that matters? Do you want to tackle huge challenges? Do you want to make a large impact on the design and architecture of cutting edge products used every day, by people you know? If yes, we would love to talk to you.
