DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wondered how Amazon is able to accurately promise when your items will be delivered to you? Wondered how, based on various carrier capabilities and availability of items in some of its many warehouses, it is able to provide an exact delivery date for you within fraction of a second? If so, the Delivery Promise team is for you. The team is at the core of Amazon's supply-chain systems and owns set of services which provides millions of promises per hour for the Amazon fulfillment network. We are part of the Supply Chain & Optimization Technologies(SCOT) organization and are looking for experienced software engineers to design and develop highly available and scalable software solutions.

Our system computes accurate delivery expectations for every customer order fulfilled by Amazon. You will build back-end systems that impact core front-end customer facing experience on many of Amazon’s main webpages and are central to the order and fulfillment pipelines.
