Work for Amazon 1 mile from the beach in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA, USA.

Santa Barbara is home to the Alexa Knowledge team.  If you’ve ever asked Alexa, “What’s the score of the Seahawks game?” or “Who was the sixteenth president?” then the Alexa Knowledge team delivered the answer. 
Our team is part of Alexa AI Knowledge, whose mission is to make Alexa smarter on fact-based Q&A. We deliver essential, unbiased facts for customers looking for voting information, air quality stats, homework assistance during remote learning, and more.

By leveraging a robust understanding engine and one of the largest knowledge graphs in the world, our cross-functional team of software engineers and content creators continuously invent new Alexa experiences to delight customers.
Our team—formerly known as Graphiq—was founded in 2009, and acquired by Amazon in May 2017.

Team members enjoy many perks, including:
• Semiannual Hackathons and Monthly Demos
• Lunchtime CrossFit, yoga, soccer, and basketball
• Cold Brew and Kombucha on tap

Now located in the heart of downtown, Santa Barbara - Amazonians can easily access numerous restaurants and historic theaters, yoga and Pilates studios, bars, tasting rooms and breweries moments away from the office. When surf’s up at lunch, team members borrow the office surfboards and bike, walk, scooter or drive 1 mile to the breakwater. Meet some of our team here.
