The Inventory Planning and Control (IPC) team owns Amazon's global inventory planning systems. We build the systems that decide what, when, where, and how much we should buy to meet Amazon's business goals and to make our customers happy. We do this for millions of items, for hundreds of product lines worth billions of dollars of inventory world-wide. Our systems are built entirely in-house, and are on the cutting edge in automated large scale supply chain planning and optimization systems. IPC fosters new game-changing ideas, continuously improves, resulting in sophisticated, intelligent and self-learning models. IPC is unique in that we're simultaneously developing the science of supply chain planning and solving some of the toughest computational challenges at Amazon.
We are looking for developers to design/build scalable, distributed computing solutions. You will be partnering with data science, product managers and software engineers to solve complex problems and building innovative solutions to drive $100B inventory buying decisions. You will be responsible for driving the team's technical direction, strategizing and shaping our long-term vision and architecture. Candidate needs to have a high sense of ownership, ability to develop end to end solutions and improve customer experience. This role would expose you to solving problems of scale in the areas of data mining, machine learning algorithms and distributed systems of cloud-scale.
