Want to build machine learning systems that impact hundreds of millions of customers worldwide?

We are looking for outstanding Machine Learning Engineers to join the Audience Building teams within Amazon Ads. Audience Building enables advertisers to define the customers they want to engage based on shopping interactions, digital content consumption, and other events on Amazon via machine learning models and rule-based criteria.
