Product Manager, Middle Mile Research Planning And Optimization Science
It's no secret that Amazon relies on its technology to deliver millions of packages every day to its customers – on time, with low cost. Ground and air transportation represent some of the fastest growing logistics areas within Amazon.
The scale of this operation challenges Amazon to design, build and operate robust transportation networks that minimize the overall operational cost while reliably meeting all customer deadlines. The Middle Mile Planning Research and Optimization Science (mmPROS) organization is charged with developing an evolving suite of decision support and optimization tools to facilitate the design of efficient air and ground transport networks, optimize the flow of packages within the network to efficiently align network capacity and shipment demand, and effectively utilize scarce resources, such as aircraft and trucks. Time horizons for these tools vary from years and months for long-term planning to hours and minutes for near-term operational decision making and disruption recovery.
These tools rely heavily on mathematical optimization, stochastic simulation, meta-heuristic and machine learning techniques. In addition, we often find existing techniques do not effectively match our unique business needs which necessitates the innovation and development of new approaches and algorithms to find a solution to operate high volume, low latency, and high availability services. Oh, and we will need great leaders too (interested? … read on).
As part of the leadership team, you will lead technology product and management for a number of exciting initiatives in the middle mile transportation space. You will regularly interact with executive leadership and work with business teams to define product strategy, develop the product development roadmap, technology and execution.
You'll work in a fast-paced environment and will be required to lead not only at the strategic level, but also tactically day-to-day by diving deeply into business and technical domains. As a multi-discipline leader, the buck will stop with you - you will work alongside our talented research scientists and development engineers.
To accomplish this, we expect you to have an established background in technology product development, excellent project management skills, great communication skills, and a motivation to achieve results in a dynamic environment. You should enjoy working on complex strategic modeling and algorithms, be customer-centric, and feel strongly about building the most innovative algorithmic solutions to operate complex and large transportation networks.
Come and see for yourself why we are one of the most admired company in the US, rated #1 in Innovation and # 1 in Customer Service, and be part of our tradition of working hard, having fun and making history! At Amazon, we hire hands-on managers at all levels.
The leader must be able to dive deep into the details on business, operations and engineering. We need technical, detail-oriented leaders who can build and grow organizations.
