Amazon Senior Generative AI Data Scientist, Amazon Bedrock Service GTM - Big Bets in New York, New York


Are you passionate about Generative AI (GenAI)? Do you want to help define the future of Go to Market (GTM) at AWS using generative AI? In this role, you will help some of our largest customers build and deploy GenAI enabled applications using Amazon Bedrock and SageMaker, fine tune and build Generative AI models, and help enterprise customers leverage these models to power end applications. You will engage with AWS product owners to influence product direction and help our customers tap into new markets by utilizing GenAI along with AWS Services.

At Amazon, we’ve been investing deeply in artificial intelligence for over 20 years, and many of the capabilities customers experience in our products are driven by machine learning.’s recommendations engine is driven by machine learning (ML), as are the paths that optimize robotic picking routes in our fulfillment centers. Our supply chain, forecasting, and capacity planning are also informed by ML algorithms. Alexa is fueled by Natural Language Understanding and Automated Speech Recognition deep learning; as is Prime Air, and the computer vision technology in our new retail experience, Amazon Go. We have thousands of engineers at Amazon committed to machine learning and deep learning, and it’s a big part of our heritage.

AWS is looking for a Generative AI Data Scientist, who will be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for helping customers in designing solutions that leverage our Generative AI services.
