Job Summary


Amazon’s Supply Chain Optimization Team (SCOT) owns Amazon’s global inventory sourcing & planning systems. We decide what, when, where, how much and from whom 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 sourcing, planning and optimization systems. We foster new game-changing ideas that we are continuously improving, resulting in sophisticated, intelligent and self-learning models. Our team is unique in that we’re simultaneously developing the science of supply chain planning while solving some of the toughest computational challenges at Amazon. Unlike many companies who buy existing off-the-shelf planning systems, we are responsible for studying, designing, and building systems to suit Amazon’s needs.
