Job Description

Do you want to create worldwide impact in Robotics? Amazon Robotics builds high-performance, real-time robotic systems that can perceive, learn, and act intelligently alongside humans—at Amazon scale. Our mission is to enable robots to interact safely, efficiently, and fluently with the clutter and uncertainty of real-world fulfillment centers. Our AI solutions enable robots to learn from their own experiences, from each other, and from humans to build intelligence that feeds itself.
We hire and develop subject matter experts in robotics with a focus on motion planning, computer vision, deep learning, intelligent control, semi-supervised and unsupervised learning. We target high-impact algorithmic unlocks in areas such as scene and activity understanding, closed-loop control, robotic grasping, and manipulation in high-contact environments—all of which have high-value impact for our current and future fulfillment networks.

We are seeking a hands-on, Applied Science Manager for Perception/ Computer Vision who will be deep in code and algorithms; who has a wealth of robotics/ computer vision experience; and who is technically strong in building scalable ML solutions. You will lead the research and development of advanced robotic systems; you will work along with other top-notch scientists and engineers to deliver the world's most scalable and robust robotic systems. In addition to coming up with novel solutions and prototypes, you will directly contribute to implementation. A successful candidate has excellent communication skills and a drive to achieve results in a collaborative team environment.

You should enjoy the process of solving real-world problems that, quite frankly, haven’t been solved at scale anywhere before. Along the way, we guarantee you’ll get opportunities to be a fearless disruptor, prolific innovator, and a reputed problem solver—someone who truly enables AI and robotics to significantly impact the lives of millions of consumers.

Key job responsibilities
* As a manager, you will be responsible for delivering critical perception capabilities.
* You will manage across the science and engineering job families required to build these systems.
* You will prioritize being a great people manager: motivating, rewarding, and coaching your diverse team is the most important part of this role. You will recruit and retain top talent and excel in day-to-day people and performance management tasks.
* You will keep your technical skills current to contribute to architecture and design discussions.
* You will regularly take part in deep-dive troubleshooting exercises and drive technical post-mortem discussions to identify the root cause of complex issues.
* Set a vision for your team and create product roadmaps. Help your team sort out technical and product requirements and priorities. Use project management skills to deliver product roadmap items and other cross-team projects.
