Operations Technology IT
We develop and deliver technology that supports Amazon Operations at worldwide scope and scale that is unparalleled. We are forming a new team focused on providing advanced image solutions that leverage both automated and semi-automated Computer Vision (CV) and Machine Learning (ML) processing techniques to provide enhanced safety, productivity, and quality controls throughout Amazon’s global operation sites. We will be automating image capture and analysis, large data set handling, using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for classification and segmentation of images, spatial recognition of objects/distance/velocity relationships, real time and near-term operational feedback loops and large-scale process automation. See Amazon’s recently open sourced Distance Assistant as a good example of our work.

What You’ll Do
As a Program Manager supporting the camera vision team, you’ll be responsible for managing new and existing programs, successfully delivering difficult projects aligned with team goals. You’ll be partnering with development managers to drive CV-based projects that will be implemented at Amazon operation sites all over the world. You’ll learn the relevant business problems, tools, workflows, and interdependencies across your program area, working with one or more software development teams, providing project leadership, avoiding bottlenecks and mitigating project risks. You’ll focus on the larger business picture (i.e., customer experience, processes or problem, opportunities, etc.) to drive services and solutions that keep Amazon associates safe, reduce process flow disruption and detect and eliminate quality errors before they impact customers. You’ll be collaborating and coordinating a diverse team made up of software development engineers, data scientists, system development engineers, business intelligence engineers, applied scientists, product managers, technical program managers, operations specialists and customers to create new AI-driven CV solutions to meet challenging and meaningful problems at enormous scale.
