Amazon Web Services (AWS) is still growing, and committed to doing so as efficiently as possible. We’ve been asked by AWS’s leadership to deliver several key forecasting models and impact analyses that will be used to guide major investments. We expect these forecasts and models to be updated regularly to influence Amazon’s planning cycles as well as tactical decisions. We need these outputs automated, scaled, and then optimized by testing a variety of data and modeling approaches.


We’re looking for an SDE who’s excellent in programming and interested in learning more about ML. You’ll act as a tech leader for our team of scientists, setting and modeling best coding and building practices for the team. You’ll be hungry to learn about machine learning and economics, and you’ll teach young scientists not just how to code but how to automate, set up reusable workflows, and generally solve problems at scale.
