Amazon Logistics is building a world class last mile network with aggressive growth plans. As part of the Supply Chain Planning team, the Ops Research Scientist will work on optimization projects across capacity management for labor and on-road resources, and network connections. The Ops Research Scientist will partner with capacity planning leaders, product/program managers, data engineers and other research scientists to build tools with clear business impact in an exciting and fast-paced start-up environment. The OR Scientist will be responsible for developing new predictive and optimization models as well as algorithms for key applications. The OR Scientist will be expected to be a thought leader as we chart new courses with our last mile planning models. Successful candidates will have a deep knowledge of computational optimization methods and mathematical modelling, background in statistical and machine learning methods, the ability to map models into production-worthy code, the communication skills necessary to explain complex technical approaches to a variety of stakeholders and customers, and the excitement to take iterative approaches to tackle big, long term problems.
* Guide the technical approach for the design and implementation of successful models and algorithms in support of teams across Amazon. * Work in expert cross-functional teams delivering on demanding projects. * Functionally decompose complex problems into simple, straight-forward solutions. * Share knowledge in state-of-the-art statistics and machine learning research or frontier applied mathematical modelling and computation applicable to our problem space.
If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, know how to deliver, are deeply technical, highly innovative and long for the opportunity to build pioneering solutions to challenging problems, we want to talk to you.
