Senior Generative AI Data ScientistFull time
Are you passionate about Generative AI (GenAI) ? Do you want to help define the future of Go to Market (GTM) at AWS using generative AI? In this role, you will help our customers build and deploy GenAI enabled applications using Amazon Bedrock and SageMaker, fine tune and build Generative AI models, and help enterprise customers leverage these models to power end applications. You will engage with product owners to influence product direction and help our customers tap into new markets by utilizing GenAI along with AWS Services.
At Amazon, we’ve been investing deeply in artificial intelligence for over 20 years, and many of the capabilities customers experience in our products are driven by machine learning. Amazon.com’s recommendations engine is driven by machine learning (ML), as are the paths that optimize robotic picking routes in our fulfillment centers. Our supply chain, forecasting, and capacity planning are also informed by ML algorithms. Alexa is fueled by Natural Language Understanding and Automated Speech Recognition deep learning; as is Prime Air, and the computer vision technology in our new retail experience, Amazon Go. We have thousands of engineers at Amazon committed to machine learning and deep learning, and it’s a big part of our heritage.
AWS is looking for a Generative AI Data Scientist, who will be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for helping customers in designing solutions that leverage our Generative AI services. As part of the Worldwide Specialist Solutions Architecture team, you will work closely with other Specialist Machine Learning Architects from various geographies to enable large-scale customer use cases and drive the adoption of Amazon Web Services for ML/AI platforms. You will interact with other Solution Architects in the field, providing guidance on their customer engagements, and you will develop white papers, blogs, reference implementations, and presentations to enable customers and partners to fully leverage ML/AI on Amazon Web Services. You will also create field enablement materials for the broader SA population, to help them understand how to integrate Amazon Web Services ML solutions into customer architectures. . You drive effective feedback gathering from customers, and you distill and translate that feedback into clear business and technical requirements for product and engineering teams to review. You may continue to sponsor the creation of new products and features from these requirements, working closely with product and engineering teams to minimize requirements drift from your customer’s needs.
You must have deep technical experience working with technologies related to multimodal, image generation, from model fine-tune to prompt engineering. A strong developing machine learning background is preferred, in addition to experience building application and architecture design. You will be familiar with the ecosystem of software vendors in the AI/ML space, and will leverage this knowledge to help Amazon Web Services customers in their selection process. Candidates must have great communication skills and be very technical, with the ability to impress Amazon Web Services customers at any level, from executive to developer. Previous experience with Amazon Web Services is desired but not required, provided you have experience building large scale solutions. You will get the opportunity to work directly with senior ML engineers and Data Scientists at customers, partners and Amazon Web Services service teams, influencing their roadmaps and driving innovation.
