Job Description

Do you want to build cutting edge technology, solve new problems that didn’t exist before, and have the ability to see the impact of your successes?

We’re looking for software engineers and developers who want to build Amazon’s next generation of inventory sourcing systems as part of Amazon’s Supply Chain Optimization Technology group. SCOT OSS designs and builds systems that measure and manage Amazon’s supplier capabilities, identifies and reacts to supply options, and prioritizes inbound freight for our global network. Our software is used globally, and is a critical link to ensuring the products our customers want are available when they need them.

As an SDE in OSS, you’ll work closely some of the brightest software engineers, scientists, economists, and product managers to solve highly complex supply chain challenges. You and your fellow engineers are responsible for designing the architecture, building the software, and working with the team to deploy your solutions across the globe. OSS is a unique opportunity to both create and see the direct impact of your work on billions of dollars’ worth of inventory in one of the world’s most advanced supply chains, and at massive scale.

You should be comfortable diving deep into technical architectures and requirements, be able to quickly identify solutions to challenges discovered during development, and ready to work with some of the latest cloud computing technology. Prior experience building stable, scalable, solutions is required. Prior experience with data mining, databases, machine-learning or massively parallel systems is a plus. Successful candidates will thrive in fast-paced environments that leverage agile planning techniques, encourage and reward creative design, intelligent risk taking, and find innovative ways to leverage cutting edge technology.

Amazon is growing, and we need SDEs who move fast, are capable of breaking down and solving complex problems, and have a strong will to get things done. SDEs at Amazon work on real world problems on a global scale, own their systems end to end and influence the direction of our technology that impacts hundreds of millions customers around the world.
