Hello, my name is

Anaïs Neumann

I'm a day-time recruiter and a full-time closet-creative...



Hello, my name is Anaïs (pronounced "ah-nah-ees", although most people just call me Ananas) and I am a French citizen (born and raised by Germans) and based in the sunny city of Tel Aviv, Israel.

I am fluent in English, German, French and Spanish, and currently looking to add Hebrew to my list of language skills.

When I am not working as a Recruiter for the world’s most customer-centric company, I am passionate about web and graphic design, photography, and tech. Travelling and tasting new foods and flavours also ranks pretty high on my list of things I love to do in my spare time.

And to mix things up even more, I decided to relocate to one of the most exciting, innovative and fast-moving countries of the world: the start-up nation of Israel.

With Alexa, Amazon strives to enable shopping in everyday life. we believe that there is an opportunity to disrupt the convenience component further by delivering voice-first shopping experiences - and the Alexa Shopping team is responsible for delivering this vision. We work with cutting edge technologies and exceptional people building Amazon's award-winning natural language understanding and automated speech recognition technologies.

I am now responsible for the full-cycle recruitment of Software Development Engineers, Product Managers, Data Scientists and R&D Team Leads into our exciting locations of Tel Aviv and Haifa in Israel.

I am also a certified Amazon trainer and keeper of our high hiring bar.
