Job Description<\/h2>Who are we? Its no secret that Amazon relies on its technology to deliver millions of packages every day to its customers \u2013 on time, with low cost. We, the Transportation Technology division, build the complex software solutions that are needed to work across our vendors, warehouses and carriers to optimize both time & cost of getting the packages delivered. That said, this is a multi-billion-dollar business, and our technical journey has only started. We are looking to build brand new systems that use our vast collection of data to optimize the delivery algorithms \u2013 and make a big impact on Amazons business costs. If you find this space interesting, read on\u2026What do we do? The first step in ensuring we can figure out an optimal solution to ship all our packages is knowing the data for the problem well in advance. Yes - forecasting! Our teams vision is to build systems that analyze forecast how many packages will flow through the entire Amazon transportation network \u2013 from our vendors into our warehouses, out of our warehouses to our customers, between our warehouses. Constantly measuring & ensuring the accuracy of forecast is also critical given the whole transportation plan (and thus billions of dollars of expense) are impacted by this crucial piece of data. This is easier said than done. From figuring out how to collect the right data from various systems, to designing systems on how to quickly process this data, to developing machine-learning algorithms to use this data - and a multitude of other factors - into predicting what the future demand will look like, to constantly measuring & improving the accuracy of our algorithms \u2026 well, you get the idea \u2026 it is a tough nut to crack. We have the mandate to build a new team (a very rare greenfield development opportunity!) to create a solution that alerts, recommends and guides the operational leadership to deliver reliably on customer promise while maximizing throughput. We are looking for smart and passionate engineers such as you to join in the effort. What will you do? As a Software Engineer, you will be responsible for all aspects for product development. You will not only focus on design & coding of new algorithms and building new scalable services that can process millions of transactions everyday using AWS technologies. You will build new services and provide direction to build decision support systems and then automate processes eliminating human decisions. In the process, the big business impact to be made is to reduce the cost of sortation, which has potential to save tens of millions of dollars. You will have lots of opportunities to help build & strengthen the team via mentoring, hiring & training and grow your career.Come and see for yourself why we are one of the most admired company in the US, rated #1 in Innovation and # 1 in Customer Service, and be part of our tradition of working hard, having fun and making history!
