Amazon Solutions Architect, UK Public Sector - Defence in Manchester, United Kingdom

Description

AWS Sales, Marketing, and Global Services (SMGS) is responsible for driving revenue, adoption, and growth from the largest and fastest growing small- and mid-market accounts to enterprise-level customers including public sector. The AWS Global Support team interacts with leading companies and believes that world-class support is critical to customer success. AWS Support also partners with a global list of customers that are building mission-critical applications on top of AWS services.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for a Solutions Architect to join our thriving technical community and growing business in the UK as part of the Defence Technical Team. You will join a friendly and supportive team, working together to bring the latest in disruptive cloud computing technologies to organisations serving our defence customers and partners. Our UK Public Sector teams help customers to build a deeper understanding of hyper-scale cloud technology and application architectures, and they have the consultative skills required to deliver successful outcomes for the customer.

As an AWS Solutions Architect, you will have ownership of the technical relationship with customers, making recommendations on security, cost, performance, reliability, operational efficiency and best-practice architectures.

Internally, you will be an advocate acting on behalf of the customer to help drive continual improvements to the AWS platform, sharing their needs and wants to inform the roadmap of AWS features and services. You will also help shape the future of the Solutions Architecture organisation by helping to hire, coach and mentor others.

In this role, your creativity will link technology to tangible solutions, with the opportunity to implement or document cloud-native reference architectures with the AWS Solutions Architect community.

You will participate in the creation and sharing of recommended practices, technical content and new reference architectures (e.g. white papers, code samples, blog posts) and evangelise and educate about AWS technology (e.g. through workshops, user groups, meetups, public speaking, online videos or conferences).

If you can educate AWS customers about the art of the possible, while investigating the impossible, come build the future with us.

We seek candidates from all backgrounds to join our teams, and we encourage our employees to bring their authentic, original, and best selves to work.

Amazon cares about employee health and well-being, both on and off the job. AWS employee benefits include flexible working, private medical insurance (includes family), and a free employee assistance programme.

At Amazon we pride ourselves in making a difference in the world, in a unique Amazon way. We have opportunities available for employees to volunteer to help out their local communities through Amazon in the Community and supporting events such as Hour of Code.

At AWS, we’re dedicated to providing an inclusive and accepting environment, from the first day you join us. We believe that broader representation of talent allows us to continue innovating for our customers.
