Interested in building complex data architectures and applying advanced analytical techniques at a large scale? Curious how we decide to fulfill Customer orders in the most efficient way possible across marketplaces and business programs? Want to be a part of a core team dedicated to building the systems that do this?
Every time an Amazon Customer places an order, the Fulfillment Optimization (FO) Team sets the expectation for when their items arrive, and subsequently finds the optimal solution for where and how they will be fulfilled. The Loadbalancer team plays a key role in this fulfillment process by managing and protecting capacity at our Fulfillment Centers. We serve as the interface between Customer expectations and Amazon's industry leading fulfillment capabilities. We are part of Amazon's Supply Chain Optimization Technology (SCOT) Group that develops and manages systems which optimize inventory acquisition, placement of products, transportation and fulfillment plans to enable delivery to our Customers.
