Are you inspired by invention? Is problem solving through teamwork in your DNA? Do you like the idea of seeing how your work impacts the bigger picture? Answer yes to any of these and you’ll fit right in here at Amazon Robotics. We are a smart team of doers that work passionately to apply cutting edge advances in robotics and software to solve real-world challenges that will transform our customers’ experiences in ways we can’t even imagine yet. We invent new improvements every day. We are Amazon Robotics and we will give you the tools and support you need to invent with us in ways that are rewarding, fulfilling and fun. Amazon Robotics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Amazon.com, empowers a smarter, faster, more consistent customer experience through automation. Amazon Robotics automates fulfilment center operations using various methods of robotic technology including autonomous mobile robots, sophisticated control software, language perception, power management, computer vision, depth sensing, machine learning, object recognition, and semantic understanding of commands. Amazon Robotics has a dedicated focus on research and development to continuously explore new opportunities to extend its product lines into new areas. The Amazon Robotics (AR) Virtual Systems Profiling team builds models, runs simulation experiments and delivers analyses that are central to understanding performance of the entire AR system, e.g. operational and software scaling characteristics, bottlenecks, robustness to “chaos monkey” stresses — we inform critical engineering and business decisions about Amazon’s approach to robotic fulfillment. We seek a talented and motivated engineer to tackle broad challenges in system-level analysis. You will work in a small team to quantify system performance at scale and to expand the breadth and depth of our analysis (e.g. increase the range of software components and warehouse processes covered by our models, develop our library of key performance indicators, construct experiments that efficiently root cause emergent behaviors). You will engage with growing teams of software development and warehouse design engineers to drive evolution of the AR system and of the simulation engine that supports our work.Amazon Robotics internship opportunities will be based in the Greater Boston Area, in our two state-of-the-art facilities in Westborough and North Reading, MA. Both campuses provide a unique opportunity for interns to have direct access to robotics testing labs and manufacturing facilities.Amazon internships are full-time (40 hours/week) for 12 or more consecutive weeks with start dates between May and June 2021.Basic Qualifications:Masters degree in Data Science, Statistics, Operations Research, or in highly quantitative field (e.g. Computer Science, Operations Research, Systems Engineering, Physics), or BS with 3 years of experience.Experience in predictive modeling, data science and analysisProgramming experience in Python, R or equivalentDemonstrated experience in data science and data analysisDesire to pursue challenging questions through extensive operational and data analysis (experience to do data analysis, regression analysis)Demonstrated outstanding written and verbal communication skillsExperience giving data presentations with graphical or data visualization tools Preferred Qualifications:Comfortable in a Linux environmentExperience with Amazon Web Services (AWS), e.g. DynamoDB, AuroraDB (MySQL), S3, SQS, SNS, EC2Interest in and experience with experimental designBackground in applied statistics or machine learningAmazon is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace.
