We are looking for a Solutions Architect to build an ecosystem of 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, 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 where we have Amazon presence. Preferably this position would be based on the east coast or central.
30% national travel is required once it's safe to travel.
