Sr. Research Scientist - EV Performance

Job ID: 1551918 | Amazon.com Services LLC

DESCRIPTION

The Last Mile Global Fleet and Products (GFP) team’s mission is to provide the vehicles and services that enable Amazon to delight customers through our Last Mile operations. Amazon is continually striving to innovate and provide best-in-class delivery experiences through the introduction of pioneering new products. GFP is on track to purchase and deploy 100,000 electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030 as part of Amazon’s Climate Pledge.

Are you inspired by...
· The rapid growth and expansion of electric vehicles into the market?
· Being part of a effort to drastically reduce carbon emissions?
· Working on tough problems at a scale and pace never done before?
Then come join our team and help us make history!

As a Sr. Research Scientist on the GFP Energy Systems team, you’ll apply your knowledge of electric vehicles (EVs) and couple that with a background in modeling, data science, and software development to help us predict how our EVs will perform in the field. You’ll develop a deep understanding of how our EVs use energy while in use, and provide guidance and recommendations to our deployment and business teams to help ensure our fleet is successful as we scale. This role is inherently cross-functional and requires working closely with software teams, research teams, operations teams, and product management teams to help deploy our EVs into an electrified Last Mile network.
