    We are a growing team continues to operate in "start up" mode to prove new business ideas, while strengthening our core ML platforms.

    About you:

    You're a seasoned TPM looking for a career where you'll be able to innovate, to deliver, and to influence. You are passionate about start-up opportunities, where you succeed by fearlessly testing new ideas and rapidly iterating on technical solutions. You have a demonstrable track record of success delivering high quality software products and services at scale.

    Some technologies and problem spaces we'll be working on:


    Scalability – We will leverage Amazon’s infrastructure to build systems and design algorithms that are able to handle these large amounts of data. Where traditional solutions fail we develop approximate, distributed, and streaming algorithms.

    DATA MINING AND MACHINE LEARNING – We will use the latest machine learning and predictive modeling technologies to extract information valuable to our business. We will look for patterns, train thousands of models, and summarize data to gain insights about customer product needs and experiences. We continually evaluate the effectiveness of our solutions and ways to improve them.
