Work hard. Have fun. Make history. The Role
This is a unique technical leadership role where you will have the opportunity to influence, invent, and design system architecture across multiple product and technology spaces (Alexa devices, Fire TV, Tablet, Smart TV, etc.). You will join a team whose mission is to ensure that state-of-the-art technologies that serve the customer can be supported via flexible software architectures, SOC selection, and end-to-end engineering processes. To this end, you will see the big picture in brilliant graphical detail.
You will dive into ambiguous problem spaces and meticulously distill out design choices, trade-offs, and priorities. This will require working with subject matter experts in different domains (e.g. multimedia, graphics, computer vision) that may be outside your most proficient area of expertise. You are data and metric driven, and obsessively concerned about performance under resource constrained environments.
Because of the strategic and cross-domain nature of this role, we are looking for an exceptional individual who has the capability to contribute in at least two of the following domains: Android framework / OS, multimedia, graphics (performance orientation), and computer vision (embedded).
This role requires very strong verbal and written communication skills.
