This role will lead Product and Energy supply side development to enable Zero Emission Vehicle scale-up across the Amazon India Transportation network.
Background: At Amazon, we’re working to be the most customer-centric company on earth. In Sep ’19, Amazon took the Climate Pledge, with a net zero carbon (NZC) commitment across our businesses by 2040, ten years ahead of the 2015 Paris Agreement. A large part of this charter is converting our existing fleet to ZEVs (Electric Vehicles and Fuel cell vehicles). IN Ops operates vehicles through 3P operators who invest in these assets and associated energy infrastructure. The ZEV and allied energy space in India is in a nascent stage, and for partners to switch to new cleaner technologies, this will need focused intervention and collaboration with the OEMs, charging infrastructure developers, service network and afterlife recyclers.
The Fleet team’s mission is to provide vehicles and allied services that enable Amazon IN transport partners with solutions that improve overall efficiency and deliver better and cleaner for our customers. This role is responsible for owning product strategy for ZEVs across IN Ops. The role is responsible for evaluating both current and new ZEVs, setting up testing and evaluation processes, designing the strategy for products and partnerships around ZEVs, and establishing roadmaps with our auto OEM partners and allied energy infrastructure partners.
