Have you ever ordered a product on Amazon websites and when the box arrived wondered how you got it so fast, how much it would have cost Amazon, and what kinds of systems & processes must be running behind the scenes to power the whole operation?
If so, the Europe Supply Chain Analytics team is for you.
Amazon seeks a passionate, results-oriented, analyst to join our European Supply Chain team in Luxembourg. You will be responsible to monitor and optimize our complex and expanding fulfilment network end-to-end.
Successful candidates will have the attitude of a data detective combined with strong analytic skills and problem solving mindset.
You will work both bottom up from anecdotes up to algorithmic improvements or top down from performance metrics monitoring down to processes improvements.
This highly visible role requires collaborating with software developers and product managers, retail, fulfillment centers, and transportation teams.
You must have the experience and capability to create and present documentation for senior executives. You love solving complex problems but you are equally strong at simplifying them for a less technical audience.
Your responsibilities include :
Identify the biggest opportunities to optimize forecasting, inventory placement, customer shipments, or inventory transfers
Perform complex analysis, develop models and reports to drive key strategic decisions.
Identify opportunities to deliver step-changes in supply chain performance through optimization of configurations and parameters, or through improved algorithms and processes.
Analyze financial and customer impacts of recommendations.
Research, evaluate, and roll-out software, tools or process improvements.
