all the news that fits, I fwd -----Original Message----- From: Michael M. Meyer [mailto:meyer@amazon.com] Sent: Wednesday, April 26, 2000 12:55 PM To: s-news@wubios.wustl.edu; bayes-news@stat.cmu.edu Subject: [S] Statistics and Data Mining Positions at Amazon.com

Amazon.com is seeking statistical and data mining analysts at various levels. We are interested in recent graduates (at BS, MS, or PhD levels), and candidates with significant experience. There are a number of potential positions (particularly at the more junior level), both in the data mining group and the experimental design groups. If you know of strong students who are about to graduate, please let them know of our positions. Summer internships are also possible.

(Read the following as appropriate to your level. A recent BS will not have many of these skills).

In the Data Mining group we are looking for candidates who are strong in S-Plus, SAS, or statistical programming in C or C++. Prowess in exploratory data analysis, sampling, transformations and manipulation, SQL, experimental design, multivariate statistics, and data mining tool suites (suitable examples might include Clementine, Datasage, Enterprise Miner, Intelligent Miner, Neovista, or SPSS Neural Connections) will significantly increase likelihood of acceptance. Focus on satisfaction of both external and internal customers, ability to work as part of a dynamic and highly visible team, and enthusiasm for teaching statistical concepts to nonstatisticians are absolutely required. B.S. in strongly quantitative field is required. Compensation includes stock options.

In the first instance, please send your resume and cover letter in the body of an e-mail message in plain ASCII-text format, to Michael Meyer, meyer@amazon.com. (No Word documents, please)

The designed experiments group has a position (advertised on the ASA Job pages) for ....

The Statistical Analyst will lead the effective use of statistical methods to improve customer experience at Amazon.com. Strong background and experience in applied statistics and experimental design are required. SAS, Perl, UNIX, and database experience are highly preferred. Strong communication skills, individual initiative and adaptability to change are a must. Compensation includes stock options. Email resumes to Peter Morse at pmorse@amazon.com or fax to 206.266.1804

Mike Meyer, Amazon.com, Seattle WA
