20 hours ago
The Automated Profitability Management (APM) team, part of the Selling Partners Services (SPS) organization, improves the long term success of Amazon Retail by driving lower costs, and unlocking new product selection. Our team builds software and machine learning (ML) models to optimize contract negotiations between tens of thousands of vendors offering millions of products and Amazon. We directly influence the end-customer experience worldwide by determining the optimal combination of terms under which Amazon should acquire its inventory. We focus on product costs but also cover supply chain (Who pays the initial shipping costs?), marketing (Should a vendor fund advertising?), reverse-logistics (Who pays for damaged products? What about unsold inventory?) and more. Our mission is to provide to our customers the world's largest product assortment at competitive prices, through long term partnership with our vendors. We are looking for Data Engineers to drive the development of new Data Science and ML infrastructure to support the scientists in the development of new ML models. You will work closely with scientists, product managers, and software developers to implement and scale your solutions, leveraging AWS tooling but adding additional layers to support internal needs.

As an SDM in APM, you will manage a team of software engineers and work closely with the science team to deploy and run the ML models in production. You will work with business leaders, scientists, and economists to translate business and functional requirements into concrete engineering deliverables, define the technical vision and translate it into specific plans for the engineering team.

This is a unique, high visibility opportunity for someone who wants to have business impact, dive deep into large-scale economic problems, enable measurable actions on the Consumer economy, and work closely with scientists and economists. This role combines leadership, organizational ability, technical strength, product focus and business understanding.
