With SageMaker, developers and data scientists have the ability to build, train, and deploy machine learning models quickly. As a fully-managed cloud service, SageMaker covers the entire data science workflow from data preparation and exploratory data analysis to model building and inference; our charter is to make data science and machine learning understandable, affordable, scalable, and accessible to everyone. The foundation of the SageMaker user experience is the industry standard, open-source Jupyter Notebook.

· Help develop the engineers of an existing “two pizza” scrum team.
· Collaborate with other SageMaker SDEs and FEEs for features that cut across SageMaker.
· Engage with customers and other AWS partners.
