We looking for a strong technical leader to develop solutions with our customers and partners.

You will author whitepapers and reference architectures that will be leveraged by the Global Solution Architect (SA) community within AWS. You will deliver technical webinars, speak at public events and file patents for what could potentially be a future AWS product or feature.

Candidates should have deep experience working with complex software architectures building scalable, secure and compliant systems for the cloud. Experience working directly with enterprise customers is required, and prior experience working with technology companies is a plus. Previous AWS experience is preferred but not required. Strong public speaking and writing skills are required.
