DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Imagine never needing to hop from store to store during holidays because your first stop can anticipate the demand for the products they carry and stock up accordingly.

Imagine never having to wait too long or pay too much because your favorite ride-hailing service can account for weather or local events and direct enough drivers to your area.

Amazon Forecast is a fully managed AWS AI service that uses machine learning to help companies achieve these goals by delivering highly accurate forecasts.

Our engineers and scientists continuously innovate so that our customers can keep up with the speed and scale of their business operations without the data science background or machine learning experience needed for generating highly accurate forecasts.

  • build new features and efficiencies in our machine learning system that improve the cost, accuracy, and speed of delivery of our forecasts
  • employ machine learning concepts such as deep learning, ensembling, feature engineering, explainability, back-testing, handle missing values, incremental training, and model drift detection to improve the effectiveness of our automated machine learning pipelines
  • construct simple yet effective developer interfaces to reduce the time-to-market for our customers

You will use languages like Java, Kotlin, Python and Scala and popular machine learning frameworks. You will work with exciting cloud technologies from AWS suite of Compute, ML, Containers, Databases, Storage, and Analytics services.
