SDE, Yard Technology

It's easy enough to manage transportation assets. It's equally easy to track your own fleet. But how about insuring hundreds of thousands of transportation assets of all kinds (trucks, trailers, box trucks, airplanes, etc.) from thousands of different carriers worldwide depart on time to deliver millions of unique items, and do so both safely and efficiently? Do you think that is an interesting scientific and engineering challenge?

If so, we want to hear from you!

The Yard Tech team tracks and manages transportation assets that ship goods to and from Amazon facilities. We leverages technologies ranging from physical sensors, through mobile and web stacks, to machine learning. We use them to manage assets in real time, to predict where and how to deploy our resources efficiently, and to manage safety. Our products bridge the gap between fulfillment and transportation systems within Amazon's hugely complex logistics network. As an SDE, you will:
• Own products end to end: design, implement, test, deploy, and maintain mobile and web applications, and/or supporting core services.
• Collaborate with SDEs in other teams to integrate transportation systems.
• Collaborate with applied scientists and product managers to design and implement yard software products.
