    Profit Intelligence is all about providing intelligent ways for Amazon to understand profitability across retail business. What are the hidden factors driving the growth or profitability across millions of shipments each day?

    Profit Intelligence provides these answers.

    We compute profitability of each and every shipment that gets shipped out of Amazon. Guess what, we predict profitability of future possible shipments too. We are a team of agile, can-do engineers, who believe that not only are moon shots possible, but that they can be done before lunch. All it takes is finding new ideas that challenge our preconceived notions of how things should be done. Process and procedure matter less than ideas and the practical work of getting stuff done. This is a place for exploring the new and taking risks.

    We push the envelope in using cloud services in AWS as well as the latest in distributed systems, forecasting algorithms and data mining.

    As a member of the team you will be responsible for leading the development and launch of the core product features. You will have significant influence on our overall strategy by helping define these products, drive the system architecture, and spearhead the best practices that enable a quality product.

    You'll work with research scientists to design and implement forecasting models over key financial performance metrics to help business look into future and plan there financials. You will be responsible for designing and building platforms for crunching 100s of TB of in-coming data from dozens of sources and financial events around the company. If you like to be challenged in designing and building cutting edge technology, this is the place for you.

    Our team is within Retail Financial Intelligence Systems and develops sophisticated tools for the Amazon Retail businesses, supporting deep dive analysis, vendor negotiations and business planning towards enhancement at the bottom line. Teams at Amazon make automatic profitability decision based on numbers produced by Profit Intelligence org.
