Founded in 1994, Amazon is now the world’s largest online retailer. In a short span of 24 years, they have breached the 1 trillion dollar market cap, making it only the second company to do so. This success of Amazon was made possible owing to its constant pioneering and imbibing of cutting-edge technologies. For instance, Amazon web services which is Amazon’s own machine learning platform, sits on 16 billion dollars worth unrecognised revenue, according to a leading financial daily. The extended contracts by its clients verify the fact that Amazon machine learning services have been top notch. And, it is not surprising if you already are dreaming of working there.
Here we list five of the coolest jobs which will test and hone your machine learning skills:
Program Manager, Analytics
A program manager will work with the Technical team in terms of giving actionable inputs to build intelligent Analytical/Machine Learning models that will drive the quality metrics and use statistical analysis to segment Pricing errors and implement robust Quality Control checks.
- At least 18 months of experience working in Analytics/Machine Learning/Statistical Modeling/Business Intelligence environment.
- Has working knowledge of supervised learning algorithms; Decision trees, ensemble models (Random Forest, bagging and boosting), text analytics (parsing, pre-processing, topic modeling, text classification) and has the ability to build prototypes with quick turnaround using R (dplyr, mlr etc.) or python (pandas, numpy, scipy, scikit learn) and basic knowledge of regression and forecasting techniques.
- SQL, Tableau.
Software Development Engineer
An SDE will be developing scalable solutions using AWS technologies like DynamoDB, SQS, EMR, Lambda, etc to perform such corrections and measure their precision and recall. And, also apply the latest NLP and ML techniques to progressively increase the volume processing automatically without any drop in accuracy.
