Full Time
Vancouver, BC     

Share job: stores and sells millions of unique items through its Fulfillment Centers (FCs), Sort Center (SC) and Delivery Station (DS) network globally. This is a hugely complex logistics network with hundreds of thousands of transportations assets of different types (tractor, trailer, box truck, motorcycle, etc.), in different operational states (empty, loading, etc.), on the move or stationary and in different locations around the world. The Yard & Asset Management Systems (YAMS) team is responsible for tracking and managing transportation assets of all kinds that ship goods to and from Amazon facilities. We leverage GPS, RFID, integration with external services and other information to provide real time updates and tracking of what is happening on the ground. We are a key component of the Transportation Technology systems, bridging the gap between the physical world and the virtual transportation plan. We are currently used on 3 continents and are working to be deployed at every Amazon fulfilment facility globally.

The YAMS team is fully self-sufficient, managing and owning a complete end to end product comprised of multiple Android mobile applications, web applications and web services integrating with and supporting other systems within Transportation Technology. We are a small team with a large scope. As part of the YMS team you would be expected to join and participate in the design and development of multiple different types of components as well as the overall architecture of how these components fit together and perform at scale. We are looking for talented SDEs who enjoy working on and with different types of technologies, delivering high quality solutions and who thrive in a fast paced fun environment.

We are not tied to one technology - instead, we use what is best suited for the purpose. All of our systems tend to be loosely coupled, communicating using synchronous and asynchronous messaging, leading to a classic distributed processing architecture. We are looking for talented SDEs who enjoy working on creative algorithms, building large scale systems and who thrive in a fast paced fun environment.
