The Amazon Topology team determines how many, what kind, and where to place new buildings for Amazon's supply chain. These facilities range from million-square-foot Fulfillment Centers with thousands of robots down to inner-city Prime Now facilities serving orders to be fulfilled within an hour. Each year we spend billions on these facilities and expect high-impact results from the network built upon them. If you are interested in diving into a multi-discipline, high impact space this team is for you.
We use demand forecasting, optimization for various core decisions, machine learning to approximate the network, and simulation of how our choices will perform. The team is a mixture of Software Engineers, Operations Research scientists, Applied Scientists, Business Intelligence Engineers and Product Managers.
We are looking for a Research Scientist who has deep knowledge of the forecasting space, who has a breadth of other ML experience, and who can work in a production environment.
