Are you inspired by invention? Is problem solving through teamwork in your DNA? Do you like the idea of seeing how your work impacts the bigger picture? Answer yes to any of these and you’ll fit right in here at Amazon Robotics. We are a smart team of doers that work passionately to apply cutting edge advances in robotics and software to solve real-world challenges that will transform our customers’ experiences in ways we can’t even image yet. We invent new improvements every day. We are Amazon Robotics and we will give you the tools and support you need to invent with us in ways that are rewarding, fulfilling and fun.
We seek a talented and motivated engineer to tackle broad challenges in system-level analysis. You will work in a small team to quantify system performance at scale and to expand the breadth and depth of our analysis (e.g. increase the range of software components and warehouse processes covered by our models, develop our library of key performance indicators, construct experiments that efficiently root cause emergent behaviors). You will engage with growing teams of software development and warehouse design engineers to drive evolution of the AR system and of the simulation engine that supports our work.
This role is a 6 month co-op to join AR full time (40 hours/week) from January-June 2022. Come join us in North Reading, MA, or in our newly expanded innovation hub in Westborough, MA!
Both campuses provide a unique opportunity for co-ops to have direct access to robotics testing labs and manufacturing facilities.
