Share job:

Are you seeking an environment where you can apply state-of-the-art computer science techniques, work with cutting-edge tools and technologies, and use huge amounts of data to solve real-world problems and make a massive impact? Come and join us in the Picking Interfaces & Orchestration group within Amazon Fulfillment Technologies!

Amazon Fulfillment Technologies builds software, hardware, and processes that help tens of thousands of employees deliver billions of items a year from over eighty warehouses worldwide. We ensure that you get what you want when we promised it to you. We are at the core of Amazon's business and our software is mission-critical.

The Picking Interfaces & Orchestration group, based in Toronto, creates the software that makes it easy for Amazon staff to safely, quickly and accurately perform the most labour-intensive warehouse function: picking the items for your order. We deal with real physical processes, and our systems need to make decisions within real-time constraints. At our scale, a small optimization can instantly help thousands of staff and save Amazon millions of dollars: savings we can pass on to our customers to keep our prices low. We also have the opportunity to work with the most advanced technologies: AWS, robotics, machine learning, and augmented reality among others.

As a software engineer at Amazon, you're responsible for much more than just writing robust, reliable, scalable and readable code. You will operate a platform where any downtime costs millions. You will work directly with the users of your software, to deeply understand the domain and identify opportunities for improvements and optimizations. We are looking for true engineers that find practical technology solutions to real problems.
