Software Development Engineer/Machine Learning Engineer - AWS AI
- Seattle, WA
Amazon Lookout for Metrics uses machine learning (ML) to detect anomalies, or unexpected changes in customer metrics, helping them proactively monitor the health of their business, diagnose issues and find opportunities quickly with no ML experience required
Organizations of virtually every size use data to monitor trends and changes in their metrics to find unexpected anomalies, such as a dip in product sales or a sudden increase in qualified sales leads. Finding these anomalies is challenging. Traditional rule based methods look for data that falls outside of arbitrary ranges, which results in too many false alarms if the range is too narrow or missed anomalies if the range is too broad. These ranges are also static, and don't change based on time of the day, day of the week, or seasons, and need to be manually updated frequently. When anomalies do get detected, developers, analysts, and business owners can spend weeks trying to identify the root cause of the change, before they can take any meaningful action.
Amazon Lookout for Metrics automatically connects to popular AWS services such as S3, CloudWatch, Redshift and RDS, and SaaS applications such as Salesforce, Marketo and Amplitude, to continuously monitor metrics that you care about. It detects anomalies with high accuracy using ML, leading to lower false alarms and fewer cases of missed anomalies. Amazon Lookout for Metrics groups related anomalies to help you identify the root cause, and ranks them in the order of severity, so that you can focus on what matters the most. It sends you alerts through channels such as SNS, Datadog, PagerDuty, Webhooks and Slack, or triggers custom actions using Lambda, reducing your time to resolution. It also uses your feedback on detected anomalies to tune the results and improve accuracy continuously.
