Job Type:Full Time


The world is getting smaller and moving faster. What helped companies become successful a decade ago no longer works. Being agile, experimenting more and faster, pivoting, seizing market opportunities is now a matter of survival for startups and enterprises alike.


AWS customers are unshackling themselves from traditional boxes & wires by adopting secure elastic infrastructure, and higher-level services across all areas of technology, from DevOps and Containers to Server-less, Connected Everything (IoT), Mobile, Data Lakes and Analytics (D&A), Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML). Many of these customers can’t do it on their own and are looking for quality professional services and consulting firms (aka systems integrators) to help them on their cloud transformation journey. As a result, thousands of AWS consulting partners build AWS solutions for their customers every day.


In New Zealand, we see AWS consulting partners like Consegna, Datacom, Roam Creative, AC3 and many others using the AWS platform to transform the companies that power New Zealand’s economy.

This role focuses on enabling AWS consulting partners to build deep AWS specialisation and deliver innovative solutions for their customers built on a foundation of repeatability and automation. Our partners need help in envisioning the art of the possible with the new technologies that AWS has to offer and with putting those ideas to practical use building repeatable solutions for their customers. To best serve our consulting partners and ensure their success, we are looking for technologists who have a knack for helping companies understand cloud, and a passion for learning and for sharing their knowledge with others. Opportunities like this come once in a generation - don't watch history unfold from the sidelines - join us to to build the future together!
