You'll keep your technical skills updated constantly, always maintaining a baseline understanding of the latest core AWS services, and then adding breadth and depth as required by their specialty or audience needs.
• As a Strategist, you'll keep the "big picture" in mind and always look for opportunities to maximize customer value, constantly driving efficiencies on processes and mechanisms.
• As a Teacher, you'll provide technical guidance for Builders to be successful with the cloud, simplifying the complex and tailoring your message to the needs of the audience.
• As an Ambassador, you'll build long-term relationships with Builders and their communities, feeding back insights to help shape AWS go-to-market strategy, programs and products. You'll also identify and develop external AWS advocates, helping to scale our programs.
• As an Influencer, you'll use your unique personality and authentic content to help attract Builders to AWS and keep them engaged and inspired to Build.

Responsibilities:
• Gaining industry recognition and credibility as a regular attendee and speaker at AWS and third party technology conferences, shows and press events.
• Curating, developing and delivering compelling presentations, sample solutions, and discussions to help drive awareness and adoption of AWS services.
• Collaborating with internal teams to define program initiatives for technical audiences, market positioning, gathering customer feedback, and nurturing and growing technical communities.
• Creating and maintaining relevant content (demos, videos, blogs, screencasts, books, and other mediums), covering AWS services along with emerging technologies and industry developments.
• Maintaining a strong and credible presence in social media channels relevant to technical audiences.
• Working with your worldwide counterparts to share best practices and help build a best-in-the-industry developer relations organization.
• Continuing to identify leads for potential partnerships and customer opportunities.
