Solutions Architects are responsible for the overall technical relationship between customers, partners, and AWS. They make recommendations on security, cost, performance, reliability, and operational efficiency. They work to understand the customer’s needs and give prescriptive guidance on how to create solutions with AWS technology. Solutions Architects lead activities such as architecture reviews, white-boarding sessions, demos, and technical workshops. They collaborate with other teams such as account management, professional services, support, product teams, and the AWS partner ecosystem.

A day in the life
In this role you will get to practice your creativity, linking technology to tangible solutions and educating AWS customers and partners about the art of the possible. You will have the opportunity to implement or document cloud-native reference architectures for a variety of use cases. (e.g. GenAI, Machine Learning, Serverless and Container based architectures, Analytics and Big Data, DevOps or Security). The Solutions Architecture team is a diverse group of technologists from a variety of backgrounds. Practical knowledge of the AWS platform is desired but not required, provided you have a sound technical foundation and a desire to learn.

You will have the support to grow your expertise in industry and technology areas of depth. Every day you will learn something new from your partners/customers, your peers and your own experiments.

At Amazon you will be encouraged and rewarded for doing what is right for the long-term success of the customer. We value your passion to discover, invent and build on behalf of customers.
