Senior Software Dev Engineer - Optimization & Simulation in Beijing, China

The Amazon Topology team determines where to place new buildings for Amazon fulfillment, how many to build and many details of how those facilities operate. The facilities range from 26 acre Fulfillment Centers holding millions of units of inventory to the building down the street where Prime Now orders are fulfilled within an hour. Each year we spend billions on these storage and fulfillment facilities. If you’re interested in diving into a complex, deep problem with high returns this team is for you.

The systems we have developed to solve these problems are large-scale simulations (using our production systems) that leverage machine learning and novel economic models. The team is a mixture of Software Engineers, Operations Research scientists, Business Intelligence Engineers and Product Managers.
