DESCRIPTION

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Worldwide Financial Services team is looking for an insurance industry solutions and sales professional to join our fast-paced team and help drive worldwide AWS adoption in general/property & casualty (P&C) insurance.

As an Insurance Market Development Specialist, you will be part of a team focused on accelerating technology adoption of cloud computing, working with C-level and line of business executives across our customers, and internally with sales and marketing, partner, product teams and AWS senior leadership to meet our customers' needs.

You will drive new business in P&C insurance, leading the organization as a whole to effectively sell into that industry, developing programs to accelerate our customers' moves from legacy on-premises environments to AWS-based services. Your specialized industry knowledge and expertise bridges businesses and technology, and you understand the regulatory and compliance environment that our customer base operates in. You speak the language of our customers, mapping their business and regulatory needs to AWS services and partner-led solutions.

Your responsibilities will include driving top line revenue growth and overall end-customer adoption across P&C insurance in all market segments, from insurtech startups to the largest insurers, reinsurers, brokers, and other intermediaries. You will enable AWS Financial Services field teams across all sales segments and geographies to be more effective in their interactions with key prospects and customers.

You will work closely with AWS solutions architects, professional services, and security and compliance team members to develop and promote cloud best practices in areas such as security, resiliency, and regulatory compliance.

Expertise in insurance core systems such as policy administration, claims, and billing; enterprise content management (ECM); business process management (BPM); Robotic Process Automation (RPA); or API middleware and integration layers, is a plus. You will have a demonstrated ability to think strategically about business, product, and technical challenges, and a proven track record of tactical execution leading to the achievement of sales and market development goals.
