Job Description

AWS is one of Amazon’s fastest growing businesses, servicing millions of customers in more than 190 countries, reshaping the way global enterprises consume information technology and powering the developers who are building the next generation of global industry leaders. AWS customers include some of the most innovative startups like Netflix, Pintrest, Spotify, Airbnb and Instagram, as well as some of the largest global enterprises like Shell, Unilever, Hitachi, Sharp, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Samsung.

AWS is looking for Solutions Architects to build SaaS solutions with our top customers and partners. This is a hands-on, highly technical position for someone who can dive deep, build complex, AWS-optimized architectures, and develop a long-term strategy with AWS business development and service teams.

The ideal candidate has experience working on complex, highly available SaaS architectures, legacy application modernization, and can hold their own in front of technical executives, system architects, and developers. Previous experience with AWS is desired but not required, provided you have experience building solutions that run in virtualized environments. You will get the opportunity to work directly with senior engineers at both strategic partners and AWS service teams.

This position can be based in Seattle, New York, or the San Francisco Bay Area.

Amazon is an Equal Opportunity-Affirmative Action Employer – Minority / Female / Disability / Veteran / Gender Identity / Sexual Orientation.
