We tackle complex problems in computer vision, image recognition, deep learning, and large-scale distributed systems.

    As an Applied Scientist in Computer Vision in Visual Search you will:

    · Investigate and solve exciting and difficult challenges in image recognition, classification, augmented reality and deep learning.
    · Research and develop scalable computer vision and machine learning solutions to hard problems.
    · Design, implement, and deploy full-stack computer vision solutions for millions of Amazon customers.
    · Build on core technology in Visual Search.
    · Use the latest advances in neural networks and machine learning to bring new experiences for our customers.

    You are going to love this job because you will:

    · Be immersed in a "critical mass” of innovative and top caliber computer vision experts in a collegial and fun environment.
    · Work on incredibly hard problems in computer vision that are of value in the real world.
    · Create world-class computer vision products.
    · Build on Amazon’s tools and vast technical resources.
    · Work in a dynamic team that provides continuous opportunities for learning and growth.

    Located in our Palo Alto office, you will experience the benefits of working in a dynamic, entrepreneurial environment, while leveraging the resources of Amazon.com (AMZN), one of the world's leading internet companies and work alongside other developer teams across Amazon’s businesses and technology initiatives.
