Powering music, podcast, video, and book experiences on Alexa
Alexa is the cloud-based voice service that powers products like Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV and many third-party products. With Alexa you can play music, get the news, control your thermostat, and more, using just your voice. The Alexa Entertainment team focuses on delivering the Alexa music, podcast, video, and books experiences that add imagination and creativity to customers’ lives.
The Entertainment team works closely with Apple, Pandora, Spotify, and other partners, empowering them to create rich voice-first experiences and a new paradigm for how people consume music and podcast. Music is the most-used feature on Alexa, helping customers find artists they love and providing seamless consumption experience across world's best creators and services for podcast.
As Alexa continues to get smarter, the team focuses on creating scalable solutions to provide new features to an expanding customer base. In addition to bringing music and podcast into the home, Alexa helps customers find and consume media. Alexa supports audio books and can read Kindle books to customers as an accessibility benefit. On Fire TV, Alexa allows customers to launch apps, and search and play video content.
“This is the only platform that I’ve launched where technophiles and Luddites alike love it — sharp engineers are tinkering with Alexa and transforming it,” says Ben, a Senior Manager of Product Management on the team. “Natural language has been around forever, and customers don’t have to learn a new information architecture to use it. It’s incredibly complex on the back-end, but for a customer it’s incredibly simple. That’s what’s so cool about it.”
We are looking for people who are passionate about innovating on behalf of customers quickly, demonstrate a high degree of ownership, and dive deep to understand customer needs. The team has openings across a variety of disciplines, from designers and product managers to software development managers, to technical project managers and software engineers, to quality assurance engineers.
