The Amazon Demand Forecasting team seeks a Senior Applied Scientist to join our team. Scientists in Demand Forecasting lead the development of novel algorithmic architectures, toward the ultimate goal of accurately predicting customer demand for millions of products world-wide. This drives down supply chain costs and enables the offer of lower prices and better in-stock selection for our customers.
Working collaboratively, you will develop solutions to complex problems, such as designing the next generation of algorithms to drive the Supply Chain. As a Senior Applied Scientist, you will continue to contribute to the research community, by working with other scientists across Amazon and our Supply Chain, as well as collaborating with academic researchers and publishing papers. Within Demand Forecasting, our Science community values teamwork, supports continued learning, and recognizes the need to take risks and try new ideas that may fail. Furthermore, our builder culture means that Scientists and Software Development Engineers work closely together to invent and construct at a massive scale; since implementation decisions are made at a team level, it is likely that your work will end up in an Amazon product. Recent work to come from Demand Forecasting includes papers presented at the NIPS 2017 Time Series Workshop, KDD 2018 Time Series Workshop, and ICML 2018 Deep Generative Models Workshop.
