Sr. Product Manager - Tech, Maps

Desciption

Amazon Logistics is building technology to power a Last Mile delivery network that will deliver packages to hundreds of millions of customers around the world. Geospatial data (e.g., road network; addresses and locations; places and points of interest) is a foundational input to last mile systems for planning safe, efficient routes and for guiding drivers to delivery/pickup points. Our vision is to vend geospatial data that is authoritative, complete, rich, and up-to-date to enable every driver – independent of tenure and affinity - to succeed at their delivery/pickup task. This includes two high level products: Places which models areas of interest for customers (including: addresses, points-of-interest, apartment buildings/campuses) where customers may receive/ship packages; and Maps which includes road network topology and attributes, traffic and visual cuing information such as satellite imagery, building outlines and display tiles. Together these systems help us get better at determining the locations that we go to deliver packages, figure out how to get to those locations and to estimate the effort of delivery for planning.
