Job Information

Amazon Corporate LLC Sr. Startup Solutions Architect in Seattle, Washington

Job summaryDo you like startups? Are you interested in cloud computing? Yes? We have a role you might find interesting.Startups are the large enterprises of the future. These young companies are founded by ambitious people who have a desire to build something meaningful and challenge the status quo. They seek to address underserved customers, or to challenge incumbents. They usually operate in an environment of scarcity: whether that's capital, engineering resource, or experience. This is where you come in.We are looking for technical builders who love the idea of working with early stage startups to help them as they grow. In this role, you'll work directly with a variety of interesting customers and help them make the best (and sometimes the most pragmatic) technical decisions along the way. You'll have a chance to build enduring relationships with these companies and establish yourself as a trusted advisor.As well as spending time working directly with customers, you'll also get plenty of time to "sharpen the saw" and keep your skills fresh. We have more than 175 services across a range of different categories and it's important that we can help startups take advantages of the right ones. You'll also play an important role as an advocate with our product teams to make sure we are building the right products and features for the startups you work with. And for the customers you don't get to work with on a 1:1 basis you'll share knowledge more broadly by working on technical content and presenting at events.About UsThe AWS Startup Solutions Architecture team is dedicated to working with these early stage startup companies as they build their businesses.
