Amazon Software Development Manager - Just Walk Out Technology, Just Walk Out Technology in Pune, India

Description

AWS Applications provides horizontal and industry vertical applications for business users with the same on-demand scalability, reliability, pay-as-you-go pricing, and machine learning expertise that drive AWS services. The AWS Applications group includes services such as Amazon Connect (a cost-effective cloud contact center), our End User Computing (including Amazon Workspaces, AppStream, etc.), Marketing Tech (Amazon Pinpoint), and Autonomous Checkout and Biometric Identity Services (Just Walk Out, Amazon One) for retail, sports, travel, and other verticals.

The Team: From the merchandise stores at Sports venues to small-format stores such as Amazon Go, a new kind of technology is powering stores with no lines and no checkout. You simply use the Amazon app to enter the store, take what you want from our selection of fresh, delicious meals, grocery essentials and merchandise, and go.

Our checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by our Just Walk Out (JWO) Technology. It automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you’re done shopping, you just leave the store. Shortly after, we’ll charge your Amazon account and send you a receipt. Designed and custom-built by Amazonians, our technology uses computer vision, sensor fusion, and advanced machine learning. Innovation is part of our DNA. We need people who want to join a high-reaching program that continues to push the state of the art in computer vision, machine learning, distributed systems and hardware design.

The Role: Everyone on our team needs to be entrepreneurial, wear many hats and work in a highly collaborative environment that’s more startup than big company. We’re solving problems that span a broad range of domains: computer vision, image recognition, machine learning, and distributed systems. This role involves building/scaling Machine Learning platform used for developing all the algorithms at JWO.

As a Manager of Software Development, you'll manage a team to define, drive and execute on this vision. You'll develop your team of highly motivated and talented builders who can collaborate with product managers, technical specialists, and principals across the company. You should be customer obsessed, data-driven, and comfortable influencing up and down a large organization, especially at senior levels.

Key job responsibilities

· Define the long-term vision, strategy, and goals for your teams

· Manage a development team responsible for the core of Amazon Go's Just Walk Out technology

· Prioritize, plan projects and features, manage partners, and track external commitments.

· Drive continual improvements to the efficiency and flexibility of the platform while keeping an extremely high bar on customer trust, performance, and availability.

· Foster the career development of your direct reports.
