Golang Job Details
AWS Well-Architected is seeking a Solutions Architect who will build out example scenarios and hands-on labs to demonstrate best practices for deploying workloads in the cloud. This person will work with internal and external stakeholders to help acquire and maintain a proficiency in conducting Well-Architected Reviews, reviewing the results, and encouraging the resolution of any critical items or improvements detected in the workloads. The ideal candidate will be just as comfortable talking with the implementation engineers as they are talking with the CTO or CFO. We want to help our customers build cloud native applications, and adopt new ways of thinking about technologies solutions. We are extending an information rich product that uses advanced tooling to deliver the right content and advise to customers as they build and operate their workloads on AWS. You will enjoy the opportunities in this role if you like working with partners and customers, and helping them with their adoption and execution of this solution with end customers.
In this role, you will need to be technically capable and credible in shaping the solutions-focused skills of AWS partners and customers with respect to conducting AWS Well-Architected reviews, implementing best practices to remediate any critical issues, and educate customers and partners on how to improve their implementations. You will be responsible for building and maintaining example workloads and hands-on labs that will be used to educate and on-board partner organizations. You will help shape and deliver on a strategy to build mind share and broad use of AWS across the partner and customer communities by emphasizing the importance of implementing AWS Well-Architected best practices. Working backwards from the customer business challenges, you will define specific technical enablement strategies which enable our customers and partners to become more successful on AWS. You will take part in delivering the Well-Architected Framework Workshops and leading labs to enable various partners, customers, and internal stake holders. You will provide leadership for the technical relationship and act as the trusted advisor for specific questions on implementation using tooling and within their processes. You will develop, improve, and execute multi-day workshops, lead white boarding sessions, and respond to inquiries while the partner or customer is learning and implementing the AWS Well-Architected Framework. You will have the opportunity to dive deep on our AWS technologies and will work side by side with some of the top technical talent in the industry.
