Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster.

AWS is seeking a Customer Solutions Manager (CSM) to engage directly with customers and help them realize the immense benefits derived through migrating to the cloud. This role is focused on accelerating the customer cloud journey, maximizing customer value, delivering a frictionless experience, and ensuring our customers capture the full potential and sustainable business advantages of migrating to the AWS cloud.

A CSM facilitates migration initiatives and utilizes their technical acumen, program management, organizational change management, and communication skills to influence a broad range of multidisciplinary teams - aligning sales, solution architecture, support, product, professional services, and partners to optimize customer outcomes. A CSM works with customers and AWS stakeholders to define strategic roadmaps, break them into actionable initiatives, define scope, capture and track business and technology success criteria, identify appropriate resources to execute complex technical and organizational change management plants, set goals, track and report progress, develop schedules, and communicate at all levels to deliver results. CSMs assess risks, anticipate bottlenecks, provide critical issue management, balance trade-offs, and encourage risk-taking to maximize business value. A CSM evangelizes on behalf of AWS and influences customers at an executive level to allocate appropriate resources to achieve goals. In the end, the CSM role is responsible for the alignment of cloud transformational programs (technical, operational, organizational, and educational) that span traditional IT teams and business units, to accelerate our customers’ journey to the cloud.

At AWS we value critical thinking, self-motivation, and the ability to deal with ambiguity. You should bring a cool head, extensive technical background, be detail oriented, have excellent problem solving abilities, and be an exemplary verbal and written communicator. Your technical expertise and operational excellence will influence your team’s decisions and help us drive robust customer solutions.
