DESCRIPTION

Amazon Logistics (AMZL) is Amazon's "Last Mile" delivery service, responsible for delivering packages (and smiles) to households/businesses across the planet. Our finance team closely partners to support this rapidly expanding business while building a portfolio of delivery stations, vans, and technology to deliver customers' packages on time - often next day, sometimes faster. We augment our traditional "deliver by van" with other models including Amazon Flex (gig economy drivers), Amazon Lockers, and more - all designed to deliver smiles to our customers. You will make history as you help build one of the largest carriers on the planet.

AMZL Finance seeks a Senior Financial Analyst to join the AMZL Launch and Innovation team, partnering directly with our business and finance partners to own NA AMZL Investment Analytics where you will influence decision-making within the org. You will have extensive cross-functional partnership opportunities with business and finance leaders across multiple disciplines including Real Estate, Long Range Planning, Topology, Construction, Startup and Launch teams to solve tough, unstructured problems as we optimize our AMZL delivery network. Your ability to deliver meaningful financial analysis through ambiguous situations and operate with a high degree of critical thinking will allow you to operate as the primary Finance stakeholder in the decision-making of growing our AMZL network.

Success in this role requires you to partner with and influence business owners, respectively audit and challenge business model assumptions, and adapt to a rapidly-evolving environment. You will own the financial analysis behind the decisions AMZL will make, and hold yourself and partners accountable for ensuring those data-driven decisions are best for Amazon. You will collaborate with all types of stakeholders, from other finance leaders, to functional leaders, to executives, across multiple business units within Amazon. You bring best-in-class business partnership, critical thinking, and high judgement not only in the execution of your work but also while advocating strong controllership within your team and across stakeholders. You are comfortable asking tough questions, communicating insights, and presenting your analysis to business leaders during reviews.

This role directly impacts the decision on billions of dollars of investments in Amazon Last Mile infrastructure. A successful candidate effectively influences business partners, provides sound and thoughtful recommendations leveraging high degrees of financial knowledge and critical thinking, and manages competing priorities in a quickly changing environment. The candidate should demonstrate amazing analytical skills, ability to work with ambiguity and strong analytical and verbal and written communication skills as direct interaction with worldwide operations leadership is common.
