Sr. Identity Solutions Architect
- Santa Ana, Costa Rica
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides developers and their organizations with foundational web services and products that enable them to innovate faster and to operate their software more cost effectively. AWS Identity teams are building secure identity, authentication, authorization, resource management, and governance systems for the AWS Cloud. Our products provide the core authentication and authorization technologies used to access all AWS services (such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, and Amazon DynamoDB) and help customers meet their individual security requirements.
As part of the identity solutions team, you will work to understand and build end-to-end identity scenarios. You will work with customers to understand details of their identity solutions, provide recommendations, and build test environments. You will use your identity and security experience to identify and recommend opportunities for AWS to streamline the experience. Additionally, you will use your experience to develop customer facing guidance such as case studies, talks, and blog posts.
The successful candidate will have deep technical skills that enable them to engage closely with customers and AWS teams on end-to-end identity solutions. They will rely on their experience building on AWS to build test labs to understand identity capabilities across AWS. They rely on their experience, judgement, and ability to influence to guide customers toward recommend best practices. They have relentlessly high standards and use this to deliver simple, but comprehensive, information to all AWS customers.
AWS has the most services and more features within those services, than any other cloud provider-from infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, and databases-to emerging technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, data lakes and analytics, and Internet of Things. AWS Platform is the glue that holds the AWS ecosystem together. Whether its Identity features such as access management and sign on, cryptography, console, builder & developer tools, and even projects like automating all of our contractual billing systems, AWS Platform is always innovating with the customer in mind. The AWS Platform team sustains over 750 million transactions per second.
