The Workforce Staffing Research team is responsible for our hourly workforce: who do we hire? How should we hire them? How do we make sure the right candidate gets the right role at the right time, and how do we do this efficiently? As Amazon moves toward free one day shipping for prime customers, and as we continue to scale globally, answering these questions will have material impact on the business, and on the experience our candidates have.
Here's where you come in:
What is the role? As a Senior Research Scientist in Workforce Staffing, your work is focused on leading research programs to deeply understand the people that make up our hourly workforce. You understand that even when hiring hundreds of thousands of hourly associates across multiple types of roles and businesses, the experience of each candidate matters.
You leverage your background in experimental psychology, behavioral economics, or a related discipline to develop and test theoretical frameworks and design experiments. You use your deep expertise in statistics (regressions, multilevel models, structural equation models, etc.), and data collection in a variety of settings (e.g., field studies, surveys, existing large data sets) to define and answer nebulous problems. You lead the design, deployment, and continued analysis of our global candidate research activities, using experimental, quasi-experimental, and RCT methods. You relentlessly obsess over understanding our candidates and what attracts them to Amazon. You work with colleagues across Research, Data Science, Business Intelligence and related teams to enable Amazon find and hire the right candidates for the right roles at an unprecedented scale.
This will be a highly visible role across multiple key deliverables for our global organization. If you are passionate and curious about data, obsess over customers, love questioning the status quo, and want to make the world a better place, let's chat.
