Amazon.com is looking for a Senior Software Developer in Seattle, WA. The post states, "Our team is mining for interesting topics and the authoritative relationships between them. We blend of a variety of disciplines (such as NLP, data mining, machine learning, big data, semantic web, graph stores, cloud computing) in an effort to understand our customers and the things they're excited bout. For example: “Harry Potter” is a fictional universe based around a series of books, and “Harry Potter Wands” are essential costume components. While there are knowledge and entity graphs out there, none capture the rich lifestyles and topics our customers are interested in. And we don’t just build data: we’re looking for developers with Web & App development experience to help us find new ways to interact with our customers."

Strong Coding Skills: You need to be very comfortable with code, preferably in languages such as C#, Java, Ruby or Python.

Job Level determined by demonstrated scope of influence, level of leadership, and complexity of projects. Solid familiarity or expertise in one or more of the following. Machine Learning.
