Bridget Hogan is a software engineer for Amazon and works on Alexa. We chat with Bridget about her background, how she got into computer science, and what brought her from PA to MA. Rachel and Felicia lose their cool (almost) about how much they love Amazon and all the many products. We talk about technology and how it applies to our lives, and reminisce about some old-school movies (Smart House, anyone?).
Want to work on Bridget’s team? Amazon Cambridge in Kendall Square is hiring for Alexa, the groundbreaking voice assistant behind Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, and other devices. Alexa is built in the cloud, so she is always getting smarter. The more customers use Alexa, the more she adapts to speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences.
