Machine Learning Engineer - Computer Vision

Nashville, TN 37201


Operations Technology IT
We develop and deliver technology that supports Amazon Operations at worldwide scope and scale that is unparalleled. We are forming a new team focused on providing advanced image solutions that leverage both automated and semi-automated Computer Vision (CV) and Machine Learning (ML) processing techniques to provide enhanced safety, productivity, and quality controls throughout Amazon€™s global operation sites. We will be automating image capture and analysis, large data set handling, using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for classification and segmentation of images, spatial recognition of objects/distance/velocity relationships, real time and near-term operational feedback loops and large-scale process automation. See Amazon€™s recently open sourced Distance Assistant as a good example of our work.

What You€™ll Do
As a highly skilled Machine Learning Engineer III, you€™ll have the opportunity to develop advanced machine learning models based on static and dynamic unstructured data captured through Amazon€™s network of computer vision devices, and to optimize and automate model training and testing for experimentation, development, and production, all in support of use cases related to promoting associate wellbeing, detecting process flow anomalies and preventing customer defects. You€™ll be using and honing your state-of-the-art machine learning skills daily and collaborating with cross-functional team members from multiple disciplines, including software development engineers, data scientists, system development engineers, business intelligence engineers, applied scientists and operations specialists to create new AI-driven solutions to meet challenging and meaningful problems at enormous scale. You will also be coaching other Machine Learning Engineers on the team, raising the bar for yourself and your colleagues.
