Data Scientist


Job Overview


Time and Attendance is looking for a Data Scientist to deliver data insights for cross-functional projects to eliminate employee pay defects.
Time and Attendance (TAA) is a rapidly growing team tackling new, hard problems that Amazon has not solved at scale and creating fundamentally improved ways for employees to record time and receive accurate pay. We balance start-up vision and operational excellence, technical complexity and clear product definition, and global scope across multiple Amazon businesses. We are developing software solutions to support Amazon’s high-growth populations. We’ve all heard about 24/7/365. That’s 8760 hours in a year. Now multiply that by the hundreds of thousands of hourly workers at Amazon … those who work in our fulfillment, customer service, Alexa data services, and AWS data centers; employees in our growing number of Amazon Books bookstores and subsidiaries. On every continent. We must be able to move at Amazon speed and support new and varied business launches.

Who are we looking for to join our team?

At Amazon we take seriously our commitment to pay employees accurately and on-time. While each line of business is responsible for knowing and driving down pay defects for their own employees, the centralized TAA Perfect Pay team manages data stores and analytics, program oversight, cross-org technical and non-technical projects, and drives accountability across leaders. We are looking for a Data Scientist to identify and deliver data insights for cross-functional projects involving tools and processes to prevent pay defects before they happen.
