What is the most relevant business data for AWS leadership? What are the most important insights in this data? Are we investing enough in our infrastructure, or too much? How much new workloads do our new products drive into AWS? Which initiatives help our customers utilize AWS the most? How do our customers react to changes in prices, purchase options or products?

The Central AWS Econ team is dedicated to answering these questions using quantitative, economic and statistical methods. We develop cutting edge data pipelines, build accurate predictive models, and provide insights to executive leaders throughout the company. We are looking for a talented, driven, and analytical researcher to help us answer these (and many more) questions.

This Data Scientist role will develop models and datasets to support projects led by our senior researchers. The successful candidate will be a versatile problem solver who enjoys diving into data. This role is ideal for a data scientist who has strong coding skills. The role requires moving algorithms from prototype to application, optimizing and evaluating alternative technical approaches to the problem. The work will require collaborating with Data Scientists, BIEs and Data Engineers across AWS.

Key Responsibilities:
· Develop ML models for customer level predictions
· Implement new algorithms to improve existing models
· Collaborate with data engineers to integrate new data sources into the econ pipeline

Basic Qualifications


· M.S./M.A. in Computer Science, Data Science, Economics, Statistics or a related quantitative field and 2 years' of work experience as a data scientist
