Working at Amazon Robotics
Are you inspired by invention? Is problem solving through teamwork in your DNA? Do you like the idea of seeing how your work impacts the bigger picture? Answer yes to any of these and you’ll fit right in here at Amazon Robotics. We are a smart team of doers that work passionately to apply cutting-edge advances in robotics and software to solve real-world challenges that will transform our customers’ experiences in ways we can’t even imagine yet. We invent new improvements every day. We are Amazon Robotics and we will give you the tools and support you need to invent with us in ways that are rewarding, fulfilling and fun.
The Amazon Robotics (AR) Software Research and Science team builds and runs simulation experiments and delivers analyses that are central to understanding the performance of the entire AR system. This includes operational and software scaling characteristics, bottlenecks, and robustness to “chaos monkey” stresses -- we inform critical engineering and business decisions about Amazon’s approach to robotic fulfillment.
We are seeking a Senior Data Scientist to design, evangelize, and implement state-of-the-art solutions for never-before-solved problems. The Senior will work closely with other research and robotics experts to design and run experiments, research new algorithms, and find new ways to improve Amazon Robotics analytics to optimize the Customer experience. They will partner with technology and product leaders to solve business problems using scientific approaches. They will build new tools and invent business insights that surprise and delight our customers. They will work to quantify system performance at scale, and to expand the breadth and depth of our analysis to increase the ability of software components and warehouse processes. They will work to evolve our library of key performance indicators and construct experiments that efficiently root cause emergent behaviors. They will engage with software development teams and warehouse design engineers to drive the evolution of the AR system, as well as the simulation engine that supports our work.
