Our focus in the Alexa Knowledge team combines natural language understanding, acquiring large volumes of structured knowledge, and building autonomous machine reasoning to allow our customers to get answers to their questions in the most natural way possible
We're part of a huge research and engineering effort on the Amazon Alexa team.
We've solved many complex problems to get to where we are today, but there are still plenty of challenges ahead of us, and Alexa is getting smarter every day
The problems we solve in the Alexa Knowledge team in Cambridge help Alexa get smarter by understanding the different ways people talk, by learning more and more facts about the world, by improving her common sense reasoning and by responding in the most natural way possible in multiple languages.
We set out to build Alexa at Amazon because we believe that voice will fundamentally improve the way people will interact with technology, and we wanted to create a computer in the cloud that could be controlled entirely by your voice.

Alexa is part of a huge engineering effort at Amazon, where we deliver genuinely complex and cutting edge technology at truly global scale; there are tens of millions of Alexa devices out there
We have solved so many different problems to get to where we are today - your role is to own these problems, think big and answer them.

We have opportunities for you to work in areas such as machine learning, big data, distributed/scalable systems, server side applications, customer intelligence, and many more

• Working with and maintaining a large existing code base as well as new components; maintaining production code and contributing to deployment and QA processes.
