Profit intelligence systems measures, predicts true profit(/loss) for each item as a result of a specific shipment to an Amazon customer.

Profit Intelligence is all about providing intelligent ways for Amazon to understand profitability across retail business. What are the hidden factors driving the growth or profitability across millions of shipments each day?

Profit Intelligence provides these answers.

We compute the profitability of each and every shipment that gets shipped out of Amazon. Guess what, we predict the profitability of future possible shipments too. We are a team of agile, can-do engineers, who believe that not only are moon shots possible but that they can be done before lunch. All it takes is finding new ideas that challenge our preconceived notions of how things should be done. Process and procedure matter less than ideas and the practical work of getting stuff done. This is a place for exploring the new and taking risks.

We push the envelope in using cloud services in AWS as well as the latest in distributed systems, forecasting algorithms, and data mining.

We are looking for a Software Development Engineer who can build complex software solutions to enable large scale and complex stream processing that involves application of simple allocations to complex ML Models. You will work together with a highly multi-disciplinary team of Applied scientist, software development engineers, strategic partners, product managers and subject domain experts. As a software development engineer on this team, you will play a pivotal role in shaping the definition, vision, design, roadmap, and development of this set of product features from beginning to end.


  • Build and operate our foundational data infrastructure comprising of the entire spectrum of AWS Services - Storage (Redshift Data Shares, s3 data lakes), Orchestration (Step Functions, Glue and Internal Java Based Orchestration Tools), Processing (Spark & Flink - KDA), Streaming services (AWS Kinesis) and real-time large scale event aggregation stores.
