Data Scientist

AWS Professional Services is a unique consulting team. We pride ourselves on being customer obsessed and highly focused on the AI enablement of our customers. We are looking for a passionate and talented Data Scientist who will collaborate with other scientists and engineers to develop computer vision and machine learning methods and algorithms to address real-world customer use-cases.

You will design and run experiments, research new algorithms, and work closely with talented engineers to put your algorithms and models into practice to help solve our customers' most challenging problems.

This position requires that the candidate selected be a U.S. citizen and obtain and maintain an active TS/SCI security clearance.

Primary responsibilities for you in this role:
· Research, design, implement and evaluate novel computer vision algorithms.
· Work on large-scale datasets, creating scalable, robust and accurate computer vision systems in versatile application fields.
· Work closely with account team, research scientist teams and product engineering teams to drive model implementations and new algorithms
· Interact with customer directly to understand the business problems and aid them in implementation of their ML solutions
· This position can have periods of up to 10% travel.
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

We are dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we are building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we are happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.
