Job Description


The Pre-Owned business (POB) team within Amazon Devices is looking for a leader to fill the newly created position of Data Visualization Expert. This person will lead our group in designing and developing data visualizations that help us decipher key insights from the data that might otherwise go unnoticed. This role is central to the continued growth of the Pre-Owned division as it continues its fast paced growth and expansion from the sales of the Pre-Owned devices to driving upgrades through the Trade-In program.

One of the key missions of POB group is to provide choice to our customers by making Pre-Owned Devices available for purchase through various channels and to provide customer appealing trade-in propositions and reducing friction to upgrade. To support this business, the group needs the insights from our existing data, most accurate forecasts, inventory targets, to ensure every customer is able to purchase the product they want, when and where they want it.

As the first Data Visualization Expert for our group you would be responsible for creating compelling, clear, and powerful representations of our data based on past performance. Looking forward, you will be required to figure out what's important to the business, to specific partners, even when they might not even realize what it is; to work with different groups and people to develop visualizations that move the business forward and enable better decisions to be made in less time.

In order to achieve this, you would also evaluate the use of capabilities and models from other groups within Amazon Devices organization - Optimization tools, advanced statistical models, machine learning algorithms and big data solutions.
