DESCRIPTION

As an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Solutions Architect within the Strategic Accounts segment you are responsible for partnering with our most valuable customers to design cloud architectures utilizing AWS services. You have strong technical depth, business aptitude, and the ability to lead in-depth technology discussions, articulating the business value of the AWS platform and services. Strong communication and interpersonal skills are required for engaging with Enterprise Architects, Technical Architects, Cloud Architects, Directors, VP's and CXOs.

You will be part of a culture of innovation where you'll use AWS services to help our customers solve business challenges such as rapidly releasing products/services to the market or building an elastic, scalable, cost optimized application. Enable innovation through continuous deployment in DevOps, build highly scalable web & mobile applications with data store technologies including MySQL, AWS Aurora, and NoSQL (e.g., AWS DynamoDB, MongoDB, and Cassandra). Help our customers design their IoT strategy and architecture or enable data-driven decision making through technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, EMR, RedShift, and Kinesis.

As a core member of the account team, you will drive revenue growth across a specific customer. As a trusted customer advocate, you will help organizations understand and implement advanced cloud-based solutions, and how to migrate existing workloads to the cloud. You will have the opportunity to shape and execute a strategy to build knowledge and broad use of AWS. You will also need to be adept at interacting, communicating and partnering with other teams within AWS such as services teams, marketing, and professional services, as well as representing your team to executive management.

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren't focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we're happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced lifeboth in and outside of work.
