Sr. Data Scientist
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 image 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, runs simulation experiments and delivers analyses that are central to understanding performance of the entire AR system, e.g. operational and software scaling characteristics, bottlenecks, robustness to “chaos monkey” stresses -- we inform critical engineering and business decisions about Amazon’s approach to robotic fulfillment.
We are seeking a Senior to design, evangelize, and implement state-of-the-art solutions for never-before-solved problems. The Senior will work closely with other research s 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. The will partner with technology and product leaders to solve business and technology problems using scientific approaches to build new tools and business insights that surprise and delight our customers. The will work to quantify system performance at scale and to expand the breadth and depth of our analysis (e.g. increase the range of software components and warehouse processes covered by our s, develop our library of key performance indicators, construct experiments that efficiently root cause emergent behaviors). The will engage with growing teams of software development and warehouse design engineers to drive evolution of the AR system and of the simulation engine that supports our work.
Inclusive Team Culture
Here at Amazon, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion.
