Amazon’s global fulfillment network enables any merchant to ship items that are ordered on Amazon to any place on earth. There is a complex network of ways in which items move between vendor locations, Amazon warehouses, and customer locations as well as several intermediate locations through which packages travel before reaching the customer. With a scale of millions of packages, each with different attributes and delivery requirements, what results is a highly dense graph of nodes.
We have built a highly respected software engineering team which is focused on solving complex problems in worldwide transportation using workflows, optimization algorithms, and machine learning systems. These are large-scale distributed systems handling millions of packages being shipped through the Amazon logistics network.
As a Sr. SDE in our team, you will take a leading role at creating end-to-end solutions that are technically wide, with deep customer impact. You will work with multiple teams and influence them to build a long-term solution with incremental delivery approach. Also, you be our thought leader and work actively in mentoring other SDEs in the team.
