Software Engineer, Inventory Entropy Management, Amazon Fulfillment Technology At Amazon.com

Location: Toronto, Ontario

Job Description

We are the Problem-Solve Automation team. Our focus is on building a flexible and scalable architecture that can adapt to a rapidly evolving global fulfillment infrastructure, leveraging innovative technologies that help enable automation of the "unhappy" paths throughout Amazon's fulfillment operations. In short, we are inverting the man-machine paradigm by moving from human-driven to system-driven processes. And in the words of the great Winston Wolf, "[We] solve problems." But what problems are we solving?
An Amazon fulfillment center can appear to be a chaotic place. With millions of items moving in and out of fulfillment centers every minute, a quick peek under roof would reveal a manic scene. You would see associates, fixed machinery, vehicles, and robots flying about at break-neck speeds and accessing a breathtaking number of shelves and bins for storing products. In reality, however, this activity is all highly organized and orchestrated by software, with each movement carefully planned and optimized. However, there are times when mistakes occur, and products get lost. When that happens, how does a fulfillment center operating at that size, speed, and scale recover gracefully and prevent entropy? How do we find a needle in a haystack when we're constantly shuffling the haystack around? And how do we do it at extreme scale in an environment of constant growth?

This is the job of Problem Solve Automation. We operate at a nexus of machine learning, computer vision, robotics, and healthy measure of hard-earned expertise in operations optimization approaches to build automated, algorithmic approaches to solving these problems at minimal cost. We leverage massive graph and non-relational databases, vision, and machine learning systems to create cutting edge software, building automated processes and workflows in the most complex operational problem space in the business world. So what should you expect from this role?
