DESCRIPTION

Who We Are:
Amazon Logistics (AMZL) is Amazon's "Last Mile" delivery service, responsible for delivering packages (and smiles) to households/businesses across the planet. Our finance team closely partners to support this rapidly expanding business while building a portfolio of delivery stations, vans, and technology to deliver customers' packages on time - often next day, sometimes faster.

Success in this Role:

A typical day in this role provides an opportunity to lead, challenge, and innovate to help build scalable and robust solutions through data-driven decision making.
