At Amazon, we're working to be the most customer-centric company on earth. To get there, we need exceptionally talented, bright, innovative and driven leaders. If you'd like to help us build the place to find and buy anything on-line, this is your chance to make history and be intimately involved in growing our business by leading and supporting hourly staffing initiatives.

The vision of Workforce Intelligence is to design the ideal workforce to meet the customer promise anywhere. The Workforce Intelligence team applies data and insights to optimize the experience and operations for Amazon’s largest candidate population – Tier 1 Associates, who bring the magic of Amazon’s industry-leading Customer Fulfillment experience to life. The pace at which job creation and hiring must happen to support the scale and complexity of Amazon businesses is a problem Amazon is uniquely qualified to solve for and continually innovate on. Workforce Staffing (WFS) literally hires by the hundreds of thousands across multiple role times, job attributes, and for a range of business lines.

As a Data Engineer, you will provide technical leadership, lead data engineering initiatives and build end-to-end analytical solutions that are highly available, scalable, stable, secure, and cost-effective. You strive for simplicity, demonstrate creativity and sound judgement. You deliver data solutions that are customer focused, easy to consume and create business impact. You are passionate about working with huge datasets and have experience with the organization and curation of data for analytics. You have a strategic and long term view on architecting advanced data eco systems. You are experienced in building efficient and scalable data services and have the ability to integrate data systems with AWS tools and services to support a variety of customer use cases/applications.

In This Role, You Have The Opportunity To

  • Design, implement and operate large-scale, high-volume, high-performance data structures for analytics and data science.
  • Implement data ingestion routines both real time and batch using best practices in data modeling, ETL/ELT processes by leveraging AWS technologies and big data tools.

  • Collaborate with engineers to help adopt best practices in data system creation, data integrity, test design, analysis, validation, and documentation

Key job responsibilities

As a Data Engineer with Workforce Intelligence, you will partner with Software Engineers, Data Scientists and Business Intelligence Engineers.

In this role, you will serve as the expert in designing, implementing, and operating a stable, scalable, low cost environment to flow information from the source systems to data warehouse into end-user facing reporting applications such as Tableau or AWS QuickSight. Above all, you will bring large datasets together to answer business questions and drive data-driven decision making.

About The Team

The Workforce Intelligence team supports the Workforce Staffing organization by transforming data into insights on high volume hiring within Amazon. While WFS is responsible for the management of the Tier 1 talent supply chain, the Workforce Intelligence team in particular focuses on defining analytics that measure the performance of the program.
