Amazon is a com­pany of build­ers. A philo­sophy of own­er­ship car­ries through everything we do — from the pro­pri­et­ary tech­no­lo­gies we cre­ate to the new busi­nesses we launch and grow. You’ll find it in every team across our com­pany; from provid­ing Earth’s biggest selec­tion of products to devel­op­ing ground-break­ing soft­ware and devices that change entire indus­tries, Amazon embraces inven­tion and pro­gress­ive think­ing. Amazon is con­tinu­ally evolving; it’s a place where motiv­ated employ­ees thrive, and own­er­ship and account­ab­il­ity lead to mean­ing­ful res­ults. It’s as simple as this: we pion­eer.

With every order made and par­cel delivered, cus­tomer demand at Amazon is grow­ing. And to meet this demand, and keep our world-class ser­vice run­ning smoothly, we're grow­ing our teams across Europe. Deliv­er­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of products to hun­dreds of coun­tries world­wide, our Oper­a­tions teams pos­sess a wide range of skills and exper­i­ence and this include soft­ware developers, data engin­eers, oper­a­tions research sci­ent­ists, and more.

Applied Sci­ence Intern­ship

Dur­a­tion: 4-6 months

About these intern­ships:
Whatever your back­ground, if you are excited about mod­el­ing huge amounts of data and cre­at­ing state of the art algorithms to solve real world prob­lems, if you have a pas­sion for using machine learn­ing/math­em­at­ical optim­iz­a­tion to design optimal or near optimal solu­tion meth­od­o­lo­gies to be used by in-house decision sup­port tools and soft­ware, if you enjoy solv­ing oper­a­tional chal­lenges by using com­puter sim­u­la­tions, and if you’re motiv­ated by res­ults and driven enough to achieve them, Amazon is a great place to be. Because it’s only by com­ing up with new ideas and chal­len­ging the status quo that we can con­tinue to be the most cus­tomer-cent­ric com­pany on Earth, we’re all about flex­ib­il­ity: we expect you to adapt to changes quickly and we encour­age you to try new things.

Amazon is look­ing for ambi­tious and enthu­si­astic stu­dents to join our unique world as interns. An Amazon EU intern­ship will provide you with an unfor­get­table exper­i­ence in a fast-paced, dynamic and inter­na­tional envir­on­ment; it will boost your resume and will provide a superb intro­duc­tion to our activ­it­ies.

As an intern in Ops Research and mod­el­ling, you could join one of the fol­low­ing teams: Sup­ply Chain, Trans­port­a­tion, HR, Employee Rela­tions and more.

You will put your ana­lyt­ical and tech­nical skills to the test and roll up your sleeves to com­plete a pro­ject that will con­trib­ute to improve the func­tion­al­ity and level of ser­vice that teams provides to our cus­tom­ers. This could include:
  • Ana­lyze and solve busi­ness prob­lems at their root, step­ping back to under­stand the broader con­text
  • Apply advanced stat­ist­ics /data min­ing/ oper­a­tions research tech­niques to ana­lyze and make insights from big data (data sets could include: his­tor­ical pro­duc­tion data, volumes, trans­port­a­tion and logist­ics met­rics, sim­u­la­tion/exper­i­ment res­ults etc.) across mul­tiple geo­graph­ies.
  • Closely col­lab­or­ate with oper­a­tions research sci­ent­ists, data sci­ent­ists, busi­ness ana­lysts, BI teams, developers, eco­nom­ists and more on vari­ous mod­els’ (includ­ing pre­dict­ive/pre­script­ive mod­els) devel­op­ment.
  • Per­form quant­it­at­ive, eco­nomic, and/or numer­ical ana­lysis of the per­form­ance of sup­ply chain sys­tems under uncer­tainty using stat­ist­ical and optim­iz­a­tion tools to find both exact and heur­istic solu­tion strategies for optim­iz­a­tion prob­lems.
  • Cre­ate com­puter sim­u­la­tions to sup­port oper­a­tional decision-mak­ing. Identify areas with poten­tial for improve­ment and work with internal teams to gen­er­ate require­ments that can real­ize these improve­ments.
  • Cre­ate soft­ware pro­to­types to verify and val­id­ate the devised solu­tions meth­od­o­lo­gies; integ­rate the pro­to­types into pro­duc­tion sys­tems using stand­ard soft­ware devel­op­ment tools and meth­od­o­lo­gies.
  • Con­vert stat­ist­ical out­put into detailed doc­u­ments which influ­ence busi­ness actions


We want to hire the world’s bright­est minds, and offer them an envir­on­ment in which they can learn and help improve the exper­i­ence for our cus­tom­ers.
  • You are cur­rently work­ing towards a 2+ years uni­versity degree in Stat­ist­ics, Machine Learn­ing, Eco­no­met­rics, Applied Math­em­at­ics, Com­puter Sci­ence, Oper­a­tions Research or a closely related field.
