Amazon Bay Area teams

What are the teams working on ML at Amazon in Bay Area offices?

I have received an offer from Alexa AI in Seattle but chose Alexa Shopping List in Bay Area to stay here in Bay Area for personal reasons. Alexa shopping list is working on Software Development. I don’t know how good the team is.

How easy is internal mobility at Amazon and can I switch the teams after accepting the offer? My current recruiter at Amazon isn’t helpful. My recruiter didn’t connect me with Bay Area open positions. I had to find Alexa Shopping opening and then my recruiter got in touch with the hiring manager and got me that offer. When I asked about other open positions she literally said I can’t ask for other opportunities.

Amazonians please advice and if possible please help me connect with any opportunities.

    Mobility is sort of hard and depends heavily on performance review. If you do not meet expectations, you won’t be able to move around.

      Out of curiosity, how easy is it to move from Amazon to Twitch? I’m not worried about performance because if I am working on something I give my best always.

      Easier onsite interview and using Twitch values (slightly different than amazon LPs).

    Interviews at amazon are per team. Trying to do matching that late in the process is likely an irritable for recruiters.
