Do all Research Scientist at Amazon have PhD? Is it possible to transition to Research Scientist or Data Scientist position from a BIE position? I have experience in NLP, Regression, Classification algos but never thought of applying for this position thinking I would never get a call. However, I stumbled upon a profile on Linkedin who has an MS in MIS and got an offer for Research Scientist right out of grad school. No publications also.
What school is he from?
