Company eyes artificial intelligence engineers for one of its 52 domains.
Amazon is trying to hire software engineers to work on one of its new top level domains, with a focus on artificial intelligence and chatbots.
The job listing states:
We are looking for a Software Engineer to play a central role within the engineering team for a key gTLD. In this role, you will play an engineering leadership role in the development of the product portfolio for the rapidly growing conversational voice and text interaction space, influencing how human to machine conversations are enabled by working with Amazon AI and building technology powered by Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. You will contribute to key architectural decisions, building a robust and scalable new product used by developers and consumers. This is an opportunity to be involved in shaping this exciting new space from the ground up.
My first thought is that this is for .bot, but the language suggests that perhaps it’s for a domain that the company hasn’t launched. It launched .bot in 2017.
One candidate domain is .talk. Other generic domains the company has yet to launch include .like, .fast, .song, .book, .pay, .got, .deal, .free, .pin, .jot, .spot, .save, .safe, .hot, .joy, .wow, .now, .read, .call, .secure, .you, .author, and .buy.
