Inventory Planning and Control (IPC) owns Amazon’s global inventory planning systems: we decide what, when, where, how much, and from whom should we 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 planning and optimization systems. IPC fosters new game-changing ideas, continuously improves, resulting in sophisticated, intelligent and self-learning models. IPC is unique in that we’re simultaneously developing the science of supply chain planning and solving some of the toughest computational challenges at Amazon. Unlike many companies who buy existing off-the-shelf planning systems, IPC is responsible for studying, designing, and building systems to suit Amazon’s needs. Our product managers have an opportunity to be on the forefront of supply chain thought leadership by working on some of the most difficult problems in the industry with some of the best research scientists and software developers in the business, shaping our roadmap to drive real impact on Amazon’s long-term profitability. If you’re interested in getting closer to the “action,” IPC is the place for you.
As a Sr. Product Manager in IPC team, the individual will be responsible for managing the development and roll-out of new products and/or additional features and capabilities in existing products. The individual will also be responsible for coming up with creative strategies to track and identify cost savings and impact analysis while optimizing Amazon’s inventory to achieve the best experience for our customers at the lowest price. This is a high visibility role that requires partnering with WW Retail, Finance and Operations teams to impact our bottom-line.
The successful candidate will be a person who enjoys and excels at diving into data to analyze root causes and implement long term solutions – changes in business policy or processes, updates to the models in our systems, creation of effective metrics and functionality, and identify the financial impact of those solutions. The goal is to improve the Amazon customer experience through improved selection, product availability, and fulfillment reliability while enhancing profitability.
The ideal candidate would have an MBA or advance degree in Finance, engineering, operations research, mathematics, or computer science, 5-6 years of relevant experience:
- MBA or advance degree in Finance, engineering, operations research, mathematics, or computer science
- 5+ years of proven track record of taking ownership and driving business results
- Excellent analytical and problem solving skills
- High attention to detail, comfortable with “hands-on” management of tasks, and proven ability to manage multiple, competing priorities simultaneously
- Exceptional interpersonal and communication skills (both written and verbal)
Prior experience in supply chain management is preferred but not required.
