In addition to MANY open requisitions for Software Development Engineers, Amazon’s looking “Alexa Evangelists” and voice synthesis engineering experts. From Amazon’s Alexa job site:

It is still Day One for the team to work on audio, automatic speech recognition, and natural language solutions that revolutionize how customers interact with Amazon’s products and services. We are currently located in Seattle, Boston, Sunnyvale, and the EU, and continue to grow.

The Alexa platform is working on other voice-activated Amazon Devices, like Amazon Fire TV, and extending into working with connected smart home products through the Alexa Voice Service. Additionally, the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) allows third-party developers to easily build and add their own skills to Alexa, like purchasing tickets through StubHub.

The team is growing rapidly and seeks passionate, entrepreneurial technologists with deep expertise in speech recognition, language understanding and audio processing. Our IVONA subsidiary in San Francisco, Aachen, Cambridge, and Gdansk, Poland researches, develops, and delivers cutting edge Text to Speech technology, leading in voice quality, accuracy, and ease of use. The team also also works with the Evi AI and personal assistant app technology to make Alexa smarter.
