About Amazon

Job Description

The Amazon Global Supply Chain Optimization team builds systems that estimate the distribution of tens of millions of products every week to Amazon's warehouses in the most cost-effective way. When customers place orders, our systems use real time, large scale optimization techniques to optimally choose where to ship from and how to consolidate multiple orders so that customers get their shipments on time or faster with the lowest possible transportation costs. This team is focused on saving hundreds of millions of dollars using cutting edge science, machine learning, and scalable distributed software on the Cloud that automates and optimizes inventory and shipments to customers under the uncertainty of demand, pricing and supply.

We are looking for an experienced software engineer to build large scale, high availability software systems using mathematical modeling, simulations and data analysis. We are looking for a software engineer who thrives on solving complex problems and relishes the challenge of operating complex and mission critical systems under extreme loads. We strive to solve complex supply chain optimization problems that no one else has solved yet.

You will need to understand various optimization techniques to build innovative software solutions working with the supply chain business partners in delivering a viable solution. You should enjoy working closely with your peers in a group of very smart and talented engineers.

Your responsibilities include:

* Architect, design, develop, test, troubleshoot, debug, deploy, maintain, document and deliver large-scale, highly distributed, real-time and management systems that are core to effectively managing the supply chain business.
* Drive design discussion across partner and customer teams

Use Java, object-oriented (OO) design patterns, distributed Oracle databases, and data modeling techniques.

* Gather and analyze business and functional requirements, and translate business requirements into technical design specifications.
* Serve as a key technical resource in the full development cycle for a development team.
* Produce comprehensive, usable software documentation.
* Drive changes in development, maintenance and system standards.
* Work in an agile development environment, where you are always working on the most important stuff.
* Hire, coach, and mentor individuals.

We have a team culture that encourages innovation and expect developers and management alike to take a high level of ownership for the product vision, technical architecture and project delivery.
