Durham, Joey

Are you inspired by invention? Is problem solving through teamwork in your
DNA? Do you like the idea of seeing how your work impacts the bigger
picture? Answer yes to any of these and you¹ll fit right in here at Amazon
Robotics. We are a smart team of doers that work passionately to apply
cutting edge advances in robotics and software to solve real-world
challenges that will transform our customers¹ experiences in ways we can¹t
even image yet. We invent new improvements every day. We are Amazon
Robotics and we will give you the tools and support you need to invent
with us in ways that are rewarding, fulfilling and fun.

The Research and Advanced Development team at Amazon Robotics is seeking
passionate and talented research scientists to develop future mobility and
transportation systems. We are looking for excellent candidates with
expertise in perception for autonomous vehicles that operate alongside
human users in highly dynamic, uncertain, and large-scale environments.
Candidates with backgrounds in SLAM (simultaneous localization and
mapping), semantic scene understanding, machine vision, and/or long-term
autonomy are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidates for these positions
will be familiar with algorithms at both the theoretical and
implementation levels. You will be challenged intellectually and have a
good time while you are at it!
