Amazon's location and predictive routing inputs play a crucial role in our vehicle routing problems and other critical applications for Amazon Logistics, Prime Now, and other Amazon businesses. As part of the Last Mile Science & Technology organization, you'll partner closely with other ML and Operations Research scientists as well as scientists from other disciplines (e.g. economics and statistics) in a collegial environment with a clear path to business impact. You will be responsible for developing new predictive and optimization models as well as algorithms for key applications. You will be expected to be a thought leader as we chart new courses with our delivery support technologies. Successful candidates will have a deep knowledge of competing statistical and machine learning methods for large scale prediction problems -or- a deep knowledge of computational optimization methods and mathematical modelling, the ability to map models into production-worthy code, the communication skills necessary to explain complex technical approaches to a variety of stakeholders and customers, and the excitement to take iterative approaches to tackle big, long term problems.
· Guide the technical approach for the design and implementation of successful models and algorithms in support of teams across Amazon which leverage geo-spatial data and routing technology.
· Work in expert cross-functional teams delivering on demanding projects.
· Functionally decompose complex problems into simple, straight-forward solutions.
· Share knowledge in state-of-the-art statistics and machine learning research or frontier applied mathematical modelling and computation applicable to our problem space.
If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, know how to deliver, are deeply technical, highly innovative and long for the opportunity to build pioneering solutions to challenging problems, we want to talk to you.
