Description:
Amazon is seeking a highly analytical and resourceful Senior Finance Analyst to support our EU Middle Mile transportation network, ATS. We are continuously innovating on behalf of Amazon customers to deliver larger selection quicker and at lower prices.

This role involves being a part of high visibility team in charge of delivering $400MM in efficiency improvements in 2021-2023. You will partner the business on specific projects which you will own from inception to delivery. This is a Think Big project where finance team supporting the project will not be responsible for any month end or budgeting activities but fully focused on delivering cost improvements.

In this role, you will drive profitability and customer experience by directly influencing the development, planning, and execution of our transportation network.

You will be working closely with business partners, stakeholders, and other finance teams across transportation, fulfilment, supply chain, and technology teams to reduce cost, while improving customer experience. You are a person who enjoys operating in a dynamic, fast changing environment. You are able to process complex and, at times, ambiguous data, identifying and addressing key risks and helping operations to develop efficient customer centric solutions. Given the nature of this initiative, you will have to venture into unknown territory, and help the team learn how to succeed in a new space.

Key Responsibilities:

- Collaborate with business partners who already have ideas, helping them substantiate those ideas through data analysis.
-Draft and present white papers taking an idea from inception to a full-fledged project.
-Design metrics and business review documents guiding the operations team through execution.
-Benchmark externally and internally and strive towards being the best.
