Job description


At Amazon Alexa Shopping, we are defining the first world-class voice and AI assisted shopping experience.

We are seeking a Software Development Engineer to build our Product Information Engine. You and your team will build the platform to leverage data from Amazon's vast and varied stores of product information. Your code will understand customer product related questions, source answers from unstructured and semi-structured data, index them, and reply in real time. Your platform will improve the experience for millions of customers by learning from new data, user behaviour, and better models.

What is the softest pillow? Amazon's product reviews answer this question. You need to help us get at that data and surface it for our customers.

When customers ask if a product is “green,” are they referring to the color of the product, or its environmental qualities? Your code will make this decision.

When should I change my water filter? You will need to cross reference purchase history and product accessory info to help Alexa get this one right.

Our vision is that Alexa will be the world's most knowledgeable product expert who knows you personally, in a store that sells everything. For all those moments when you need or want to know more about the products you use every day, just ask Alexa.

We are seeking the industry's best to help us create new ways to interact, search and shop, delivering features our customers love- at high quality, and at scale. You will work in an Agile environment, building and operating massively scalable services.

Leveraging existing Amazon services and components, and innovating novel capabilities as needed, you will work closely with your team to deliver business value and customer facing features.
Join us, and help shape the future of shopping.
