Sr. Data Scientist

Job ID: 1058709 | Amazon Development Center DEU


Amazon's Intelligent Cloud Control Group in Berlin is looking for a Sr. Data Scientist to develop data science implementations that will revolutionize the way Amazon manages its cloud computing infrastructure. With an ever-growing number of fleets, developers, customers, products, marketplaces, sellers, and businesses the Amazon service graph is one of the largest and most complex technical ecosystems in the world. We are building an Intelligent Cloud Control system that enables Amazon businesses (Retail, Amazon Video, Kindle, and more) to accelerate innovation in the cloud.

As a data scientist in the Intelligent Cloud Control team, you'll partner with technology and business teams to build new services that surprise and delight our customers. We develop cutting edge algorithms that involve learning from large datasets such as monitoring telemetry and logs from every host at Amazon.
