Software Development Engineer, Last Mile Planning

Company:, Inc.
Location: San Luis Obispo
Posted on: June 12, 2021

Job Description:

At Amazon we deliver billions of packages every year, in addition to the many packages delivered by 3rd party carriers like UPS. Our Last Mile organization is responsible for the customer experience of receiving the delivery, and by taking ownership of that we can innovate in that space: Same Day delivery, delivery into your garage or car, and delivery by robot, to name a few. We can continue to surprise & delight customers by bringing their packages to the place they are most convenient and expected, on time, and with the lowest delivery cost to us. The Channel Allocation team plans which packages will be delivered by alternate methods such as robots, walkers, bikes, motorbikes, or stores to pick them up. We can reduce cost by sending a load of packages to a remote distribution point and having delivery routes leave from there. Our systems make the best decisions on how each package in our network is delivered, complying with traffic limitations (no trucks in a zone), size restrictions, and grouping packages together for efficiency.

We are looking for a Software Development Engineer who loves solving hard problems in a collaborative environment, has high standards for quality and maintainability, and is looking to grow into a space where they can have high impact on customers. You will work with other engineers on our team and in adjacent teams, as well as with research scientists, senior engineers, and product managers, to develop software to automatically create the best package plans, which are used all over the globe, multiple times, every day.

Our team is dedicated to diversity & inclusion. The hiring manager is on the global board of Amazon Women in Engineering and founded the San Luis Obispo Hour of Code efforts, which in 2019 taught 4,000 schoolchildren how to code. We expect that it is everyone's job to grow themselves and help others grow, and we also mentor college student interns.

This team is located in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California. Located 200 miles from the San Francisco Bay Area and also 200 miles from Los Angeles, it is a small town in rugged country with world-class wineries, pristine beaches, and great hiking and mountain biking trails. Skiing, mountain climbing, and rafting are 4 hours drive away in Sequoia National Park.

  • Programming experience with at least one modern language such as Java, C++, or C# including object-oriented design
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • Demonstrated ability to work effectively cross-group, with a passion for team collaboration
  • Ability to work in an ownership and results oriented culture
  • Experience with distributed systems and high throughput services
  • Experience with continuous delivery, system operations, monitoring, and web services
