Company: Amazon.com, Inc.
Location: Bellevue

Job Description:

The vehicle routing team is at the heart of our growing logistics network 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 Front End 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. Most notably, ideal on-road and in-station processes may be incompatible; moreover, optimizing for the "happy path" leads to operational realities that are not resilient to failure (which are common during peak delivery times). In this role, you will create globally optimal route plans amidst these opposing forces and make them consumable by non-technical users. Vehicle routing touches sortation, containerization, picking, and dispatch. You will work at the intersection of these to build front-end applications which enable our last mile delivery operations to use the underlying algorithms for successful package deliveries across the globe. You will work with technical and non-technical end users, research scientists, senior engineers, and product managers in a fast paced and growing environment.

  • 4+ years of overall software development experience, with an emphasis on web applications
  • Experience as a member of a front-end development team participating in the complete product development lifecycle of successfully launched applications
  • Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks and libraries such as React, Redux, Ember, or Angular
  • Experience with modern web technologies and techniques such as HTML5, CSS3, ECMAScript 2016, CSS pre-processors (SASS, Less, Stylus), JavaScript transpilers (Babel, CoffeeScript, TypeScript), and JavaScript build tools (Browserify, WebPack, Grunt, Gulp)
  • Experience with Node.js and the NPM package ecosystem
  • Experience architecting and implementing complex web applications that have been successfully launched and delivered to customers
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
  • Ability to take a project from scoping requirements through actual launch of the project
  • Familiarity with emerging trends and best practices in front-end development
