Are you excited by robotics and the latest automation technology? Would you like to be a contributing part of Amazon's exciting growth? Do you like impacting tomorrow - today? Answer yes to any of these and you should be a part of the Robotics Operational Readiness Team.
The Robotics Operational Readiness (ROR) team will take the lead role to develop scalable deployment packages to enable Robotics Deployment Engineering (RDE) teams to deploy at scale, safely and with high quality, spanning a broad range of technologies: Robotics, Mechatronics, Sortation, Packaging, and Mobility. This will be achieved by partnering with upstream product development teams early in the product development life cycle to drive Design for Deployment. The ROR team will identify, plan, and implement Continuous Improvement (CI) and transformational initiatives to drive step change in RDE deployment productivity, to enable increased capacity to deploy at scale. The ROR team will engage early in product development life cycle by representing Technology Deployment (TD) in design reviews led by product teams. The ROR team will provide technical support to RDE onsite at a program level and assist in hardening the product design by serving as a bridge between field deployment and product design teams. ROR develop and validate of Deployment Readiness Audits (DRA) tools for each product type, as part of a robust deployment package for a hand off with training to RDE prior to the product moving to General Availability (GA). As ROR validates its tools and processes in field Alpha and Beta deployments, they will establish deployment KPI's & metrics used to create RDE team goals to be achieved in GA. The baseline information will be used to develop capacity models for staffing and should cost purposes. Project level execution during field alpha and beta installs is owned by Product Development and associated Launch teams. The ROR team may provide technical support concurrent with validation of their deployment packages in Alpha / Beta and iterate based on lessons learned for a scalable package hand off to RDE in GA. ROR will also be responsible for partnering with Learning and Development team to drive development of training to ensure proper product deployment training.
A successful candidate should be capable in the integration and launch of complex automated solutions. These solutions will involve many types of automation including robotics, sortation and conveyance, controls integration, vision systems, and process development/optimization. As well have the ability to demonstrate cross-functional business and technical skills, assess and manage risks, measure and report on progress, anticipate and resolve bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make trade-offs, and balance the business needs with the technical constraints.
