We are building a new group that will change the way manufacturing is performed in one of Amazon’s market segments. This will be an industry shaping group that will lead significant cost and cycle time reduction. We are looking for a senior Manufacturing Leader/Engineering professional, who is a hands-on individual to design, scale up, and continuously optimize manufacturing processes using lean manufacturing concepts. This is a great career opportunity getting in on the ground floor of an initiative that can grow worldwide. This position will be influential in how the facilities, processes, and operations are designed and executed. The person in this position will lead cross functional projects with internal groups and upstream vendors looking at the entire value stream to optimize cost and cycle time for our customers.
