Senior Product Manager - AWS Artificial Intelligence

Job Description
Come be part of the Amazon Artificial Intelligence Team! We are a cloud AWS service that helps customers run machine learning and deep learning algorithms in a scalable and cost effective manner. With machine learning, businesses now ask our machines to do more than repetitive, strictly defined tasks. We are taking it one step further and have begun to ask them to not only learn on their own but to interpret data and report to the customer before they even knew they needed it. It's a step in history for you to be a part of. You will be designing and building a platform that incorporates best practices and can run advanced algorithms in production scale and reliability. We are the 'applied' side of the machine learning movement.

In this role you will play a critical function in the product definition and design of the future of machine learning and artificial intelligence. To be successful you will need strong technical skills (previous experience as a developer, data scientist, or a technical degree is recommended). You will drive the vision and road map for the future of Artificial Intelligence in AWS.

If you are ready for the challenge, come and help us design the future.
