Amazon Machine Learning Engineer , WFI Field: Data in London, United Kingdom


Want to work for a fast-paced, innovative team? Want to work on ground-breaking initiatives? Want to work on problems that have massive scale but also need high precision? We are seeking a strong data science leader for our Workforce Staffing organization.

Workforce Staffing is responsible for hiring hourly associates into our global fulfillment operation. Each year we hire over 1 million associates across the globe. Workforce Intelligence (WFI), a subsidiary of Workforce Staffing (WFS), is responsible for driving decisions that help Workforce Staffing deliver the scale and precision it needs while minimizing the cost of hiring. WFI manages data acquisition, engineering, research, science and products that help WFS make the best decisions. Hiring over 1 million associates around the world presents the largest staffing challenge in a private company environment. The complexity is high and precision is needed because over hiring leads to unnecessary increase in wage and under hiring leads to delayed delivery of products to Amazon’s customers. There are over a dozen levers that WFS can pull to manage the scale and precision of hiring.
