Software Dev Engineer II - Specialized Buying


Inventory Planning and Control (IPC) owns Amazon's global inventory planning systems: we decide what, when, where, and how much we should buy to meet Amazon's business goals and to make our customers happy. We do this for millions of items, for hundreds of product lines worth billions of dollars of inventory world-wide. Our systems are built entirely in-house, and are on the cutting edge in automated large scale supply chain planning and optimization systems. IPC fosters new game-changing ideas that we are continuously improving, resulting in sophisticated, intelligent and self-learning models. IPC is unique in that we're simultaneously developing the science of supply chain planning and solving some of the toughest computational challenges at Amazon. Unlike many companies who buy existing off-the-shelf planning systems, IPC is responsible for studying, designing, and building systems to suit Amazon's needs.

Our New York City office creates and develops innovative solutions for the most challenging use cases confronting IPC today. We're looking for exceptional software engineers who thrive on delivering mission critical systems, love to deal with complex problems and enjoy operating at scales only available at Amazon. Here, you can take your skills to a new level as you work with the most cutting-edge technologies in order to deliver solutions that will positively impact all Amazon customers.

This opportunity is perfect for highly motivated and talented software engineers who want to apply and grow their technical depth and breadth while defining and driving key aspects of the customer experience on
