Come and be a part of Amazons amazing growth story, and the worlds largest real time network optimization service.
If you are looking for an opportunity to solve deep technical problems and build innovative solutions in a fast paced environment working with smart, passionate software developers, this might be the role for you. Amazons transportation systems get millions of packages to customers worldwide faster and cheaper while providing world class customer experience from checkout on the website, to shipment planning, fulfillment and delivery. Our software systems include services that use thousands of signals every second to make business decisions impacting billions of dollars a year, integrate with a network of small and large carriers worldwide, manage business rules for millions of unique products, and improve experience of over 100 million online shoppers. With rapid expansion into new geographies, innovations in supply chain, delivery models and customer experience, increasingly complex transportation network, ever expanding selection of products and growing number of shipments worldwide, we have an opportunity to build software that scales the business, leads the industry through innovation and delights millions of customers worldwide. We leverage cutting edge technologies in big data, machine learning, real time analytics and high volume, low latency, high availability services.
Amazons global fulfillment network enables any merchant in any of the geography ship items that you order on Amazon, to any place on earth. There are a variety of ways in which we can acquire items from vendors to our warehouses, ship items from one location to another, and several intermediate locations through which the package travels before reaching the customer. There are millions of such packages, each with different attributes, and different delivery requirements. What results is a highly dense graph of source, intermediate and destination nodes, with arcs between them representing possible paths for packages, with different costs and times along each arc. Accounting for all these constraints, maximizing the number of shipments shipped, while minimizing cost and providing the best customer experience is Transportation Engineering’s primary focus.
As a Senior TPM, you will work closely with regional fulfillment operations teams in North America, EU, Japan, China, India and Brazil to develop a deep understanding of our business and regional partners, work closely with business operations and software engineering teams to define the roadmap, architecture and success metrics for new system capabilities, own project management for deliverables that span multiple services and multiple teams, and ensure effective overall execution.
As a Senior Technical Program/Product Manager, you would be responsible for the Transportation Shipment Visibility & Exception Detection platform (code-named Mercury). The vision of Mercury is to provide continuous real-time visibility at an individual package level to customers and Amazon operators and also aggregate network level visibility at the granularity of nodes and arcs of the network. In addition to raw shipment data that comes from our carriers and internal Amazon Transportation nodes, Mercury also has a Network Intelligence layer which learns from historic patterns of package movement data and identifies packages that have missed interim deadlines and also packages that are going to miss promised delivery date at a high level of confidence. We plan to incorporate data from external sources such as weather, traffic, road closures, geo-political events (strikes, festivals) to surface the likely impact of such events on the packages that are in transit.
The position involves solutioning and guiding the development of major technology initiatives in Mercury. Sr. TPM need to thrive in an agile environment towards tangible business goals. The role has the potential to grow into a Principal TPM role overseeing multiple technology initiatives across the Transportation team in Amazon, Hyderabad.
