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 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.
Our environment is global and complex with a variety of software and systems, including industrial machines and protocols. We are constantly innovating in the ways we are automating and accelerating the delivery of products and packages which includes building custom software and hardware and applying robotics, computer vision, machine learning, image processing, and real-time data processing using distributed systems.
Amazon Fulfillment Technologies is building the next generation warehouse management system that scales from micro facilities to highly automated million square ft, multi-floor facilities. We are looking for Software Development Engineers to join a new team in Austin Texas building a multi-tenant, cloud-hosted product that orchestrates business processes across the Amazon fulfillment network. This product will improve workflow, reduce the time it takes to reconfigure how we do work and speed up the integration of new robotic equipment and other material handling equipment in our warehouses worldwide. As a Software Development Engineer, you will be responsible for design, development, delivery and support of large-scale, multi-tiered, distributed software applications and tools.
