Do you want to be part of Strategic Accounts, the segment responsible for helping AWS' largest, most complex customers achieve their business outcomes? Do you want to go deep and wide within one customer? Do you have breadth and depth of account management experience working with large and complex customers, as well as the sales and technical acumen to drive adoption of cloud services at multiple levels? Can you manage and orchestrate account team resources to drive scale and velocity across customer engagements? Are you an experienced "builder" interested in influencing how two, three, even four, sellers work in coordination to deliver account management at scale across large, complex customers? If so, we want to hear from you.

Strategic Accounts is growing its account management teams in the Bay Area and Seattle.

The ideal candidate will possess sales and technical capabilities to enable them to advise customers on AWS solutions, grow usage, and maintain relationships within specific business units and lines-of-business. A successful candidate has customer obsession while consistently meeting and exceeding long-term business and revenue targets.
