Amazon Web Services (AWS) has consistently innovated not only in a technological sense but also in a commercial one. Our pricing models offer customers an alternative to how they have traditionally bought IT and our vision is to help customers only pay for what they need. You will have the opportunity to help shape and execute a strategy to build mindshare and broad use of AWS within enterprise customers. The ideal candidate must be self-motivated with a proven track record in software/technology sales or consulting. The ability to connect technology with measureable business value is critical to a solutions architect. You should also have a demonstrated ability to think strategically about business, products, and technical challenges.
AWS is looking for experienced and motivated technologists who possess a unique balance of technical depth and strong interpersonal skills. You will partner with customers, AWS Sales and several other AWS teams to craft highly scalable, flexible and resilient cloud architectures that address customer business problems and accelerate the adoption of AWS services. As a trusted customer advocate, you will help organizations understand best practices around advanced cloud-based solutions, and how to migrate existing workloads to the cloud.
This role will build standardized, automated solutions for cloud cost management and cost optimization by taking the customers technical requirements to integrate data pipelines for an analytics platform that provides cost insights. As the Commercial Strategy Solution Architect for our Global Accounts organization, you will have the exciting opportunity to support the world’s largest and most complex multinational organizations as they transform their procurement and commercial processes to optimized for cloud.

Be great fun to work with. At AWS, we have a motto of “Work hard. Have fun. Make history”. In this role, you will love what you do, and instinctively know how to make work fun. You will be dynamic and creative, and willing to take on any challenge and make a big impact.
Enjoy working with enterprise customers. You will have a passion for educating, training, designing, and building cloud solutions for a diverse and challenging set of enterprise customers.
Have a strong understanding of large scale computing solutions. The ideal candidate will have past experience working as a big data architect or data scientist. You will enjoy keeping your existing technical skills honed and developing new ones, so you can make strong contributions to deep architecture discussions. You will regularly take part in deep-dive education and design exercises to create world-class solutions built on AWS.
