We’re using cutting edge approaches such as graph convolutional networks (GCNs) to connect information about our videos and customers from a variety of information sources, acquiring and processing data sets on a scale that only a few companies in the world can match. This will enable us to recommend titles effectively, even when we don’t have a large behavioral signal (to tackle the cold-start title problem). It will also allow us to find our customer’s niche interests, helping them discover groups of titles that they didn’t even know existed. We are looking for creative & customer obsessed machine learning scientists who can apply the latest research, state of the art algorithms and ML to build highly scalable page personalization solutions. You’ll be a research leader in the space and a hands-on ML practitioner, guiding and collaborating with talented teams of engineers and scientists and senior leaders in the Prime Video organization. You will also have the opportunity to publish your research at internal and external ML conferences (e.g. https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3292500.3330675).

If you are ready to truly make an impact on a product that is used by millions of people around the world, including your own friends and family, then we would love to talk to you.
