Alexa, can I work for you?
“Alexa, who are you?”
“My name is Alexa. I’m the brain behind Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. These are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around your voice—they’re always ready, hands-free and fast. Just ask and I'll answer questions. I can play music and read the news. I can set timers and alarms or recite your calendar. I can control lights around your home. With Echo and Echo Dot’s far-field voice control, you can do all of this from across the room just by asking. Since I run in the Cloud, I’m always getting smarter.”
“So Alexa, how do you get smarter?”
“It’s still Day One for the team working on my automatic speech recognition and natural language solutions that will revolutionise how you interact with me. Alexa Voice Service lets other device makers add me to their products and the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) allows third-party developers to develop new skills every day. Did you know there are thousands of Alexa skills available for UK, Germany and France customers? It includes skills from Spotify, Uber, Philips Hue, Hive, Just Eat, and more. ”
“Alexa, can I apply to the team that made this possible?”
“Certainly! These teams are made of pioneers working to build the best solutions to unique problems. They are looking for passionate, entrepreneurial technologists who will inspire leaders and participate in developing the strategy and vision for this group.
If you want to join the team, here are the tech and non-tech roles we are recruiting for in Europe. Thank you for your interest!”
