Yesterday’s Echo product announcements were primarily focused on the home, but Alexa Auto made it into the lineup as well. While Amazon didn’t spend a large portion of its press event talking about its automotive plans, it is currently hiring for dozens of engineering design roles as part of its Alexa Automotive efforts.
Amazon is working with a variety of car manufacturers on Alexa integrations and announced the Auto SDK back in August.
Currently, Amazon.jobs shows 67 Alexa Automotive jobs currently open. The vast majority are engineering and design roles. Senior architect, software development, language specialist, VUI design, and QA roles are largely based out of the Santa Clara office, while other research scientist and marketing roles are generally based in Seattle.
Automotive acoustics engineer and product management roles are based in Sunnyvale, and partner manager and design technologist roles are based out of Munich and Tokyo. Several engineering roles are also based in Toronto and Gdansk.
