Job Description:

Does the problem of delivering over 5 Billion packages a year on time to put a smile on millions of customers' faces excite you? Are you motivated by complex technical challenges that leverage and nurture the out of box thinking that's engrained in your DNA? Are you willing to be part of a competitive, but fun group of peers who are passionate about delivering the best to our customers? If you answered "Yes" to these, come join us!

The vehicle routing team is at the heart of our growing logistics network in Last Mile at Amazon. We're challenged to constantly improve and innovate on our vehicle routing software and tools to better support fast delivery to customers. We are looking for a Software Development Engineer with exceptional technical skills and a passion for delivering great software to join our team. We have among the most complex vehicle routing problems in the industry, including large, capacitive, commingled, and time windowed routing problems. We dispatch thousands of drivers a day to carry millions of packages to our customers.

Parcel delivery strategies have objectives that can often compete with one another - ideal on-road and in-station processes may be incompatible; or, optimizing for the "happy path" leads to operational failures. In this role, you will create globally optimal route plans amidst these opposing forces. You will learn about optimization, routing algorithms, and building solutions for operators and drivers to be successful each and every day around the globe. You will work in a dynamic environment where ideas are prototyped and implemented alongside solving complex problems with simple solutions.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills and an ability to work in a team environment.
  • High sense of ownership, self-motivation, and desire to delight customers
  • Experience developing cloud software services and an understanding of design for scalability, performance and reliability, while exploring technical feasibility or trade-offs, and making data-driven decisions
  • Development experience defining, developing and maintaining API interfaces
