DESCRIPTION

As part of the Last Mile Technology group, this team is responsible for ensuring best-in-class delivery experience for customers who shop on Amazon. The Places team does this by learning all we can about every possible delivery location on the planet and using these inputs to drive accurate, efficient and low cost delivery to our customers. We aim to make every address printed on an Amazon shipping label accurate and deliverable, while ensuring we have additional intelligence such as access codes, location photos, geocodes, business hours, and customer delivery preferences. To achieve this worldwide, we focus on building comprehensive address data models for the regions we operate in, and on developing sophisticated ML based software that recognizes and validates customer addresses, learns from historical data as well as through crowd sourced intelligence. A unique challenge for our team is that while all our platforms and technology have to be global and scalable, our solutions are always highly customized for each region given that addresses are structured and managed very differently across countries.
