Are you seeking an environment where you can drive innovation? Do you want to apply machine learning techniques and advanced statistical modeling to solve real world problems in Supply Chain, Inventory Management and Simulation? Do you want to play a crucial role in the future of Amazon's Retail business?
Every time an Amazon customer makes a purchase, a number of systems are involved: these systems help optimize inventory acquisition, enable a number of purchase options, ensure great pricing, store products so they are available for fast delivery, and minimize package frustration. The Supply Chain Optimization Technology (SCOT) Group develops and manages these systems. We are central to Amazon customers' ability to find what they want and get it when they want it. The IPC Lab team is responsible for designing and executing the experiments that measure the impact of SCOT initiatives. We are looking for a Data Scientist to drive innovation in SCOT by pushing our system further upstream in the innovation process, developing new statistical and machine learning techniques, and applying existing models to our problem space and beyond. Key responsibilities of an Applied Scientist in IPC Lab include:
* Developing new statistical and machine learning techniques in sampling, experimental design, and analysis to capture new use cases and improve fidelity, extending our scope to end-to-end Amazon use cases * Working with technical and non-technical customers to design experiments and communicate statistical results * Collaborating with our dedicated software team to create production implementations for large-scale data analysis * Developing an understanding of key business metrics / KPIs and providing clear, compelling analysis that shapes the direction of our business * Presenting research results to our internal research community * Leading training and informational sessions on statistics and machine learning
You will research and implement novel machine learning and statistical approaches. Your contributions will be seen and recognized broadly within the Amazon Retail organization, contributing to the Amazon research corpus and patent portfolio.
