Senior GenAI Data Scientist, Amazon Bedrock Service GTM - Responsible AI and Security

Job ID: 2665766 | Amazon Web Services, Inc.

DESCRIPTION

Are you passionate about Generative AI (GenAI)? This is an exciting opportunity to shape the future of AI and make a real impact on our customers' generative AI journeys. Join our team and play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Responsible Generative AI at AWS while prioritizing security, privacy, and ethical AI practices. In this role, you will play a pivotal role in guiding AWS customers on the responsible and secure adoption of Generative AI, with a focus on Amazon Bedrock, our fully managed service for building generative AI applications.

The Worldwide Specialist Organization (WWSO) is part of AWS Sales, Marketing, and Global Services (SMGS), which is responsible for driving revenue, adoption, and growth from the largest and fastest growing small- and mid-market accounts to enterprise-level customers including public sector. We work backwards from our customer’s most complex and business critical problems to build and execute go-to-market plans that turn AWS ideas into multi-billion-dollar businesses. WWSO teams include business development, specialist and technical solutions architecture. As part of WWSO, you'll provide expertise across the entire life cycle of an AWS customer initiative, from developing ideas for new services to accelerating the adoption of established businesses. We pride ourselves on thinking big, delivering exceptional results for our customers, and working across AWS as #OneTeam

AWS is looking for a Generative AI Data Scientist, who will guide customers on operationalizing Generative AI workloads from Proof-of-Concept to Production, with appropriate guardrails and responsible AI best practices, including techniques for mitigating bias, ensuring fairness, vulnerability assessments, red teaming, model evaluations, hallucinations, grounding model responses, and maintaining transparency in generative AI models. You'll develop technical assets demonstrating guardrails for content filtering, redacting sensitive data, blocking inappropriate topics, and implementing customer-specific AI safety policies. The technical assets you develop, will equip AWS teams, partners, and customers to responsibly operationalize generative AI, from PoCs to production workloads. You will engage with AWS product owners to influence product direction and help our customers tap into new markets by utilizing GenAI along with AWS Services.

As part of the Generative AI Worldwide Specialist organization, you will interact with other Data Scientists and Solution Architects in the field, providing guidance on their customer engagements. You will develop white papers, blogs, reference implementations, and presentations to enable customers and partners to fully leverage Generative AI services on Amazon Web Services. You will also create field enablement materials for the broader technical field population, to help them understand how to integrate AWS Generative AI solutions into customer architectures. You drive effective feedback gathering from customers, and you distill and translate that feedback into clear business and technical requirements for product and engineering teams to review.

You must have deep understanding of Generative AI models, including their strengths, limitations, and potential risks. You should have expertise in Responsible AI practices, such as bias mitigation, fairness evaluation, and ethical AI principles. In addition you should have hands on experience with AI security best practices, including vulnerability assessments, red teaming, and fine grained data access controls.

Candidates must have great communication skills and be very technical, with the ability to impress Amazon Web Services customers at any level, from executive to developer. Previous experience with Amazon Web Services is desired but not required, provided you have experience building large scale solutions. You will get the opportunity to work directly with senior ML engineers and Data Scientists at customers, partners and Amazon Web Services service teams, influencing their roadmaps and driving innovation.

Travel up to 40% may be possible.
