With ever expanding selection, and ambient computing looming on the horizon, it’s time to create a new shopping experience, beyond search & browse, helping busy customers easily find low-regret products that meet their in-the-moment need. It’s time to leverage big data and machine learning to generate relevant and trustworthy recommendations for billions of shopping journeys through billions of products, and to make it easy and natural for customers to discover those recommendations. It’s time for Amazon’s Choice. Amazon’s Choice recommends highly rated, well-priced, low-regret products, which are available to ship immediately.

You will identify opportunities for new ML algorithms, and define their key components. You will be designing solutions, sometimes from the ground up, that scale to efficiently handle big data generated by millions of customers and billions of items each day. In your role, you will partner with a dedicated software engineering team, economics, applied science, and product team, work closely with bright and talented people both in business and in technology.
