Job Type:Full Time

We are looking for a Solutions Architect to build an ecosystem of consulting partners for our database services and work with top ISVs to integrate AWS database services into their solutions. This is a hands-on, highly technical position for someone who can dive deep, build complex, AWS-optimized architectures, and develop a long-term strategy with AWS business development and service teams.

As a great candidate, you will have:
  • Deep technical experience working with relational database solutions. (Your experience should not be limited to systems administration, as some depth of DBA knowledge will be required.)
  • Years of hands-on experience with one or more of Amazon Aurora, RDS Oracle DB, MS SQL Server, MySQL, or PostgreSQL.
  • Additional experience with non-relational databases, such as columnar data stores, NoSQL, and graph databases would be even better.
  • Previous experience with AWS is desired but not required, provided you have experience building solutions that run in virtualized environments.
    Roles and Responsibilities
  • As a key member of the business development and sales team, ensure success in building and migrating applications, software and services on the AWS platform.
  • Educate customers/partners of all sizes on the value proposition of AWS and participate in deep architectural discussions to ensure solutions are designed for successful deployment in the cloud.
  • Conduct one-to-few and one-to-many training sessions to transfer knowledge to customers considering or already using AWS.
  • Capture and share best-practice knowledge amongst the AWS solutions architect community.
  • Author or otherwise contribute to AWS customer-facing publications such as whitepapers, blogs.
  • Build deep relationships with senior technical individuals within customers/partners to enable them to be cloud advocates.
  • Act as a technical liaison between customers/partners, service engineering teams and support.
    This position can be based anywhere on the East Coast where we have Amazon presence.
    30% national travel is required.
