Amazon Fulfillment Technologies (AFT) is seeking an inventive, results-oriented software leader for our Inventory Services group. AFT powers the physical engine at the heart of Amazon by building the software, hardware, and processes that run a global network of fulfillment centers that move billions of units of inventory, employ tens of thousands of people, and ensure that customers get what they want when promised. 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.
Our inventory management system is the authoritative source of information for billions of inventory units that Amazon holds in its Fulfillment Centers (FC), worldwide. As new inventory arrives at the FC, the system will route products to optimal locations within the FC based on space availability, customer demand and buying patterns. The system tracks the state of all items and their location, and will share the availability to upstream systems, to make the items sellable on the Amazon website. Based on a customer order, the system will reserve specific items and track them through various stages of order fulfillment, until the customer shipment departs the FC. This system monitors for discrepancies between virtual and physical states to measure the quality of our data and decisions.
As a Software Development Manager for the Material Catalog, you will lead a team of engineers in design, development, test, and deployment of a foundational set of services at the heart of Amazon's fulfillment engine. You will be challenged with building a top-notch engineering team to deliver innovative and scalable systems utilized by hundreds of other Amazon systems. You will be empowered to think big, invent on behalf of our customers, independently make judgment calls to keep teams moving and find elegant solutions to hard problems.
