Cloud Consultant



Are you a cloud infrastructure expert with experience working on large-scale transformations? Would you like to work with our customers to help them understand and leverage the benefits of the AWS Cloud? Would you like a career that gives you opportunities to help customers and partners use cloud computing to do big new things faster and at lower cost? Can you help customers understand cloud architectures through consulting on a multi-disciplinary team? Do you have experience in helping customers to analyse existing systems and to design and deliver modern architectures?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for highly technical cloud computing architects to help accelerate our growing National Security and Public Safety Professional Services business in the UK. Cloud technology presents a real opportunity to transform service delivery as well as increase operational efficiencies, and we need passionate, experienced cloud consultants to help our customers realise those benefits.

Candidates must have a balance of technical and consulting skills and experience, enabling them to work with business as well as IT leaders, software developers and architects to shape Professional Services engagements to take advantage of the global scale, elasticity, automation and high-availability features of the AWS cloud. Our consultants will collaborate with customer teams to deliver proof-of-concept projects, workshops and architecture assessments, provide advisory services and lead implementation projects working with AWS customers and partners.

You will enjoy building and expanding your technical skills, and using these to help customers understand how to architect and implement systems and applications in the cloud. You will be comfortable working alongside AWS partners, including systems integrators and ISVs, to deliver the best possible customer outcomes. You will be happy to roll up your sleeves, get stuck into the detail of systems, create demos and proof-of-concepts, and generally do what it takes to achieve success for customers on the AWS platform.

AWS Professional Services engage in a wide variety of projects for customers and partners, providing collective AWS customer experience, best practices, and obsessing about strong success for the Customer. Our team collaborates across the entire AWS organisation to bring access to product, service, and training teams, to deliver the right solutions and drive feature innovations for our customers across all industries.

This is a customer facing role. You will be required to travel to client locations and deliver professional services when needed.
