Alexa, Amazon's cloud-based voice service, is now available on more than 100 million devices from Amazon and third-party manufacturers. Developers can extend Alexa with new capabilities by writing "skills". Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) is the world's leading self-service AI developer environment that empowers skill builders to craft experiences that make Alexa a natural and enriching part of everyday life.
We have more than a hundred million Alexa devices, tens of millions of active users, and registered developers that have built over 100k published skills. With this momentum comes unmatched opportunity for developers and consumers alike. We democratize the creation of voice experiences for a broad range of roles and proficiencies.
We're looking for a world-class technologist to lead the engineering organization for Alexa Skills Kit. As the leader of the ASK team, you'll work at the confluence of new device technologies, cutting edge AI, back end systems at massive scale, and advanced developer tooling.
You will be responsible for our developer portal and tooling for novice and advanced developers alike. You will work closely with our AI team to create innovative tooling for accurate and natural dialogs with Alexa, evolve our runtime systems to drive increased scale and self-service evolution, and take our graphical user interface creation tools to the next level. You will collaborate with our Alexa device teams to build new consumer features, while giving developers access to those capabilities to delight users in new ways. And you will work closely with our business leaders to help developers acquire traffic and monetize their investment in skills.
You'll be a leader of leaders. You'll manage a large engineering and product team across a wide range of functions. Your employees will be located in Seattle and Vancouver.
We believe we're just beginning to understand how voice-forward technology can make our lives simpler, easier, and more efficient. If you share that belief, are customer obsessed, have proven ability to lead large technology teams, passionate about developers, and have launched world-class technology products, we'd love to hear from you!
