Senior Business Intelligence Engineer

The Inventory Planning and Control (IPC) team owns Amazon’s global inventory management 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 business, inventory and supply chain planning and optimization systems.
