Amazon is building a European Machine Learning (ML) team in Berlin! Machine Learning Scientists at Amazon are technical leaders who develop planet-scale platforms for machine learning on the cloud, assist the benchmarking and future development of existing machine learning applications across Amazon, and help develop novel and infinitely-scalable applications that optimize Amazon’s systems using cutting edge quantitative techniques. The ML team innovates algorithms that model patterns within data to drive automated decisions at scale in all corners of the company, including our eCommerce site and subsidiaries, Amazon Web Services, Seller & Buyer Services and Digital Media including Kindle. Amazon was one of the first companies to build eCommerce customer recommendations, fraud detection, and product search using machine learning innovations. Being part of the Machine Learning team at Amazon is one of the most exciting machine learning job opportunities in the world today. If you have deep technical knowhow in Machine Learning, know how to deliver, are deeply technical, highly innovative and long for the opportunity to build solutions to challenging problems that directly affect millions of people: there may be no better place than Amazon for you to impact the world!
