Amazon Alexa Company Overview

"Alexa, can I work for you?"

The Amazon Alexa team focuses on bringing user-delighting, voice-activated experiences to Amazon customers. The Alexa team first began with the development of Amazon Echo, a new category of device designed entirely around your voice. It's always ready, connected, and fast — just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it detects the wake word. 

But the team of speech scientists, voice designers, developers, and more didn’t stop there. The Echo family of devices has grown to include Echo Dot and Echo Spot, and Alexa is now available on Fire tablets and Amazon Fire TV. The Alexa Voice Service is bringing Alexa to other connected products, and the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) allows third-party developers to easily build and add their own skills to Alexa, like ordering an Uber or making a Capital One credit card payment.

We are currently located in Seattle, Boston, Sunnyvale, Irvine, Poland, Germany, the UK, Italy, and Luxembourg, and continue to grow rapidly.

Leadership Principles

Our Leadership Principles aren’t just a pretty inspirational wall hanging. These Principles work hard, just like we do. Amazonians use them, every day, whether they’re discussing ideas for new projects, deciding on the best solution for a customer’s problem, or interviewing candidates. It’s just one of the things that makes Amazon peculiar.

Customer Obsession

Leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although leaders pay attention to competitors, they obsess over customers.

Ownership

Leaders are owners. They think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say “that’s not my job". 

Invent and Simplify

Leaders expect and require innovation and invention from their teams and always find ways to simplify. They are externally aware, look for new ideas from everywhere, and are not limited by “not invented here". As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods of time.

Are Right, A Lot

Leaders are right a lot. They have strong judgment and good instincts. They seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm their beliefs.

Learn and Be Curious

Leaders are never done learning and always seek to improve themselves. They are curious about new possibilities and act to explore them.

Hire and Develop the Best

Leaders raise the performance bar with every hire and promotion. They recognize exceptional talent, and willingly move them throughout the organization. Leaders develop leaders and take seriously their role in coaching others. We work on behalf of our people to invent mechanisms for development like Career Choice.

Insist on the Highest Standards

Leaders have relentlessly high standards - many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar and driving their teams to deliver high quality products, services and processes. Leaders ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.

Think Big

Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders create and communicate a bold direction that inspires results. They think differently and look around corners for ways to serve customers.

Bias for Action

Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking. 

Frugality

Accomplish more with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency and invention. There are no extra points for growing headcount, budget size or fixed expense.

Earn Trust

Leaders listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. They are vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. Leaders do not believe their or their team’s body odor smells of perfume. They benchmark themselves and their teams against the best.

Dive Deep

Leaders operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, audit frequently, and are skeptical when metrics and anecdote differ. No task is beneath them.

Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit

Leaders are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. Leaders have conviction and are tenacious. They do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision is determined, they commit wholly.

Deliver Results

Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle.

Spyros M.
Senior Principal Scientist, Alexa Machine Learning

“For scientists, this is a great place for doing research because Amazon is very data-driven and metrics-oriented. The rigor expected in scientific publications in terms of running controlled experiments and tracking progress based on well-established metrics is exactly what we see in our team.”

“You also interact with people with strong technical and practical experience and learn from each other,” he says. “You’re exposed to a breadth of challenges, many of them long-term applications for artificial intelligence."

Chao W.
Alexa Science Manager

“Since 2000 I’ve been focused on developing spoken language and machine translation systems that can engage with humans more effectively, and hopefully break down language and other barriers,” Chao says. “We’re still far from systems that truly understand the meaning of what we’re saying, but the progress we’re making with Alexa is incredibly exciting.”

Janet S.
Senior Manager of Applied Modeling and Data Science

“We have much further to go in developing systems that can truly understand and converse with humans naturally.  But I’m incredibly proud of how far we’ve come with Alexa, and super excited about the work teams are doing to make Alexa smarter every day.”

Shankar A.
Senior Manager, Applied Science

“When I first joined the team I didn’t realize just how big and ambitious this initiative really is,” said Shankar. “What’s incredibly exciting for speech scientists like myself is how algorithmic innovations in machine learning and data science have created a sophisticated voiced-based AI like Alexa, and how our work on improving this technology has a positive impact on the day-to-day lives of millions of customers using it."

Chris C.
People Manager

“We have an incredibly diverse, experienced and curious team that is always pushing the envelope even further! Here at Amazon, we pride ourselves on being peculiar. We bring in talent from all around the world, leading to a diversity of background, culture and perspective in each team!” 

Beatriz R.
Team Manager

“I have quickly learned that Amazon is a company where you can actually voice out your ideas and concerns, where you can expect the support and interest of Leadership. We are quick to take action, passionate about improving processes and driven to enhance morale, so being able to speak up without fear has been my best asset. Now at the year mark at ADS, I am happy to say that the culture is one where you are proud to be a member of the team. “
