At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we are helping the federal government build ML and DL models on the AWS Cloud. We are applying predictive technology to large volumes of data and against a wide spectrum of problems.

ML and AI are rapidly growing in importance. We're seeing more and more amazing AI work being done from autonomous vehicles and imagery analysis to financial trading and shipping logistics.

We're looking for someone passionate and deeply excited about this space. Someone who is devoted to helping IC customers understand how AI can make a big difference to their mission.

As a Machine Learning Specialist Solutions Architect (SA), you will be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for designing machine learning solutions that leverage AWS services to automate solutions and drive down costs for customers. As part of the Specialist Solutions Architecture team, you will work closely with the other Specialist SAs to enable large-scale customer use cases and drive the adoption of AWS for ML/AI platforms. You will interact with other SAs in the field, providing guidance on their customer engagements, and you will develop white papers, blogs, reference implementations, and presentations to enable customers and partners to fully leverage ML/AI on AWS.
