Applied Scientist

Job ID: 1637565 | Amazon.com Services LLC

DESCRIPTION

Amazon's Weblab team enables experimentation at massive scale to help Amazon build better products for customers. A/B testing is in Amazon's DNA and we're at the core of how Amazon innovates on behalf of customers. We are seeking a skilled and experienced Senior Software Development Engineer to help us build the future of experimentation systems at Amazon.

About you:

You have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to make a big impact on Amazon and its customers. You enjoy enabling intelligent decisions in the face of real-world, noisy data, and have a bias for delivering simple solutions to complex problems. You're a scientist looking for a career where you'll be able to build, to deliver, and to impress. You're a thought leader and you demonstrate this by delivering solutions, not just by having ideas. You challenge yourself and others to come up with better solutions. You develop strong working relationships and thrive in a collaborative and friendly team environment.

About us together:

We're going to help Amazon innovate faster and smarter by designing and delivering the next generation of data analysis tools and visualizations. Along the way, we're going to face seemingly insurmountable challenges. We're going to argue about how to solve them, and we'll work together to find a solution that is better than each of the proposals we came in with. We'll make tough decisions, but we'll all understand why. We'll be the dream team.

We have decades of combined experience on the team in many areas of data science so it's a great environment in which to learn and grow. Many of us have university teaching experience and we're happy to teach. But, we're also like children playing at the edge of a vast unexplored territory; we have a lot to learn and we are all exploring together with a sense of awe and humility.
