My name is Alejandro Galindo, I’m a Computer Vision Research Engineer... turned manager!
I invested most of my past time researching Computer Vision solutions, planning, hiring, implementing prototypes, establishing business value, and taking prototypes through productization.
I have demonstrated my ability to manage Research and Development teams of various sizes for the past 7 years. I have a proven ability to work well with people across different organizations, locations, and diverse backgrounds.
I now work as a Manager of Applied Science at Amazon. I work on Amazon Go (Just Walk Out stores) related challenges where I get to use my technical background and strategic thinking to develop the future of physical stores. I'm also learning a ton at this great company!
