Job Description

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for Solutions Architects to help our partners migrate thousands of customers to the cloud. You will be playing a key role in accelerating these partners’ cloud migration capabilities to meet massive customer demand.

This is a highly technical position for someone who can dive deep, build cloud-optimized architectures, develop business strategies, and influence our product roadmap by working closely with AWS engineering teams. The ideal candidate is as comfortable white boarding complex software architectures with a roomful of engineers as they are briefing an executive audience.
