Amazon Industrial Design Engineer, Deployment Readiness in Westborough, Massachusetts


Amazon is building the next generation software, hardware, and processes that will run the global network of fulfillment centers that move many millions of units of inventory, and ensure that customers get what they want when we 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. We are constantly innovating in the ways we are automating and accelerating the delivery of products and packages which includes building custom hardware and applying robotics, autonomy, supply chain optimization, machine learning, manipulation, image processing, and real-time data processing using distributed systems.

The WW Technology Deployment org is seeking a talented and solutions-oriented Industrial Design Engineer to contribute to delivering transformational innovation to the business. This individual will be part of a team with the mission to ensure that robotics technologies maturing through the development pipeline are vetted and tested to identify and resolve issues upstream before deployments at scale. Your work will typically focus on the design and invention of tools, and validating processes, that enable large scale delivery of complex robotics systems. This role is a key part of a technical team, with the following duties:

Key job responsibilities

• Design field and laboratory trials to rigorously test and validate technology and deployment processes, including physical, functional, performance, rate, and scalability

• Develop methodologies and tools to address gaps in deployment solutions through rapid experimentation cycles, enabling increased deployment scale, speed, and resource use efficiency

• Use CAD software to refine designs and create virtual models of products

• Utilize 3D printing to create product prototypes that are both non-functional and working in order to evaluate their practicality

• Work with a team of manufacturing professionals and engineers to evaluate product prototypes in order to determine production feasibility and costs

• Demonstrate the effectiveness of your solutions through field and lab validations

• Utilize computer-aided industrial design (CAID) software to instruct manufacturing equipment how to build the finalized product design

• Provide feedback on, and improve, third-party solutions to ensure they are fit for purpose for deployment at scale
