Do you enjoy complex optimization with real-world constraints? Are you fascinated by how Amazon's package delivery services are scaling worldwide, with increasingly rapid delivery times?
Amazon Fulfillment Technologies (AFT) powers the physical engine at the heart of Amazon. AFT builds and operates software, hardware, and processes that run the global network of fulfillment centers (FCs) that move many millions of units of inventory, employ tens of thousands of people, and ensure that customers get what they want when we promised we would get it to them. We do this by building automated solutions to handle things that technology does well, while relying on people to handle things that humans do well.
We are looking for a Software Development Engineer to join AFT within the Pick Scheduling team group. We are the team that builds and maintains real-time optimization models that plan and assign the work to pick shipments in the most optimal manner to maximize productivity while still meeting the customer promise shipment date and adhering to downstream constraints within an FC and related to transportation. You will write software that helps orchestrates and optimizes the flow of packages through complex global network of Amazon's fulfillment centers.
As a member of this team, you will get the opportunity to work on highly visible, innovative projects that directly impact the customer experience. You will be involved in all the aspects of the software development cycle including scoping, design, implementation, testing & delivery of your product. This position has great opportunity for growth as Amazon increasingly automates its fulfillment center operations.
