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

The Supply Chain Optimization Technology (SCOT) owns Amazon's global inventory planning and fulfillment systems. SCOT decides what, when, who, where, and how much inventory to buy in order to meet customer needs as well as Amazon's business goals. SCOT optimizes transportation and fulfillment plans to help our Customers get what they need, as fast as possible. We do this for millions of items, for hundreds of product lines worth billions of dollars of inventory world-wide. See this short video for more info:

The Fulfillment Availability Team is part of SCOT and we own several core systems that are at the foundation of Amazon's fulfillment pipeline and supply chain. We track inventory signals globally, in real time, and provide transactionally precise data on top of robust and asynchronous systems. We manage the complex graphs, constraints, and rules that define the Amazon fulfillment network and how things move through. We enable fulfillment of anything everywhere.

As a part of a close-knit team of engineers that are agile, data driven, and highly collaborative, you will work with a wide variety of cutting edge technologies to deliver data with high reliability at massive scale. You will be part of new business initiatives that require new infrastructure, event streams and data pipelines for real-time or historical data analysis, what-if scenarios, simulations, and A/B experiments at scale. You will have the opportunity to propose ideas that impact millions of customers, owning major deliverables end-to-end, while working closely with experienced engineers and teams to execute on them.
