Machine Learning on Edge Devices Solutions Architect

Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc. Austin, TX

About the Job

Job summary
At AWS AI, we want to make it easy for our customers to deploy machine learning models on any endpoint in the cloud or at the edge. Just as SageMaker provides a complete set of services to simplify the task of building and training a model, Neo provides an inference engine that is designed to run any machine learning model on any hardware. Running machine learning inference on edge devices reduces latency, conserves bandwidth, improves privacy and enables smarter applications, and is a rapidly growing area as smart devices proliferate consumer and industrial applications.

Are you passionate to help customers accelerate their journey with Machine Learning on edge devices? The SageMaker Neo Edge team is building new technology to deliver the most efficient inference on edge devices, coupled with ease of managing these devices. We are looking for a hands on solutions architect to help customers design solutions and onboard to AWS Amazon SageMaker Edge Manager.

You will work directly with customers to understand their use cases, and also work with the core device SDK team in order to ensure a successful on-boarding. You will create proof of concept demonstrations, help onboard customer solutions to Edge Manager, and create and improve sample applications and notebooks. You will obsess over understanding what customer pain points are, and work closely with the development team to close them. You will promote deeper technical integration with other SageMaker services, with an eye for customer experience (CX). Previous embedded systems experience is important because you will be creating POCs on different target platforms using the Edge Manager device side agent.
You will engage with silicon vendors and device makers on enriching their on-device and device management service needs. This includes assisting with presentations and content that accurately reflects the architecture and potential of Edge Manager.

Join the Amazon SageMaker Neo Edge team to help AWS customers deploy machine learning models on edge devices at scale in production. Work on an open source industry-standard compiler and runtime for machine learning that is already deployed on over 20 million devices.

Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn’t about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it’s about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
