Data Science and Business Intelligence Manager

Job ID: 1543125 | Services LLC


PeopleTech is looking for a Data Science and Business Intelligence Manager to lead a team of data scientists and business intelligence engineers to deliver best in class analytical tools, reports and research projects that measure and improve the quality of time and attendance solutions used by Amazon's global workforce.

What is Time and Attendance all about?

Time and Attendance (TAA) is a rapidly growing team tackling new, hard problems that Amazon has not solved at scale and creating fundamentally improved ways for employees to record time and receive accurate pay. Our customers include each and every Amazon employee globally... we're talking millions of salaried employees and hourly workers on every continent...those who work in corporate offices, fulfillment warehouses, customer service sites, Alexa data services, AWS data centers, physical retail stores like Amazon Books and Go, subsidiaries, and these days, even home offices! Factor in the number of different variations of a “work week,” work day, overtime, and an equally daunting amount of reporting requirements. Account for rapid and dynamic way our businesses evolve and operate in order to drive innovation for both employees and customers -- for example, the ability for hourly workers to complete all training virtually, to work across Amazon businesses, and even to work across locations. We must be able to move at Amazon speed and continuously innovate to delight our customer. Are you up for the challenge?
