Senior Partner Solutions Architect - Energy Vertical

3+ months agoLondon, United Kingdom


As a solutions architect focused on Energy partners, you will have the exciting opportunity to build mindshare, establish customer and partner trust, and nurture adoption of the AWS cloud-computing platform across AWS's most strategic Energy business partners.
You will collaborate with some of the largest Global System Integrators, Regional Systems Integrators, and ISV's in the world to ensure they build scalable, secure, and high performance solutions on AWS. As the right candidate, you will possess the technical acumen that enables you to engage at all levels of an organization; as well the ability to dive deep and build cloud-optimized architectures.

You will be as comfortable white boarding complex software architectures with a room full of engineers as are briefing an executive audience. You will get the opportunity to work with a wide array of AWS partners, from well-established tech & consulting giants to innovative startups that were born in the cloud. You will author whitepapers and reference architectures that will be leveraged by the global Solution Architect (SA) community within AWS. You will deliver technical webinars, speak at public events and file patents for what could potentially be a future AWS product or feature.
You should have deep experience working in the Energy industry building scalable, secure and compliant systems. Experience working directly with enterprise customers is required, and prior experience working with technology companies is a plus. Previous AWS experience is preferred but not required. Strong public speaking and writing skills are required.

50% domestic and international travel is required.

Location: Strong preference for this position to be in London area but can be virtual.
