Solutions Architect, Aerospace and Satellite

DESCRIPTION

This role is within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Aerospace and Satellite Services organization.

Do you get excited by aerospace, space exploration, satellites and/or earth observation? If so, then we would love to talk.

AWS is looking for an experienced and self-starter Solution Architect to drive adoption of AWS services for aerospace and satellite solutions globally. Industry segments include launch services, human spaceflight, robotic/autonomous systems, mission control center operations, space stations, satellite constellations, ground segment (ground stations, earth stations, teleports), emergency response services, IoT solutions (smart/digital cities), earth observation, broadcast communications, and various government capabilities.

Solutions Architects work hand in hand with AWS customers to help them make the most of the Cloud. They are at the crossroads of business and technology and engage with organisations at all stages of cloud adoption. Solutions Architects are responsible for creating and presenting technical content and sharing best practices.

Solutions Architects are responsible for the overall technical relationship between customers and AWS and 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.

In this role you will get to practice your creativity, linking technology to tangible solutions and educating AWS customers 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. 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 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.

Amazon has always been, and always will be, committed to diversity and inclusion. We seek builders from all backgrounds to join our teams, and we encourage our employees to bring their authentic, original, and best selves to work.

Key job responsibilities
– Work directly with customers to accelerate their projects and recommend best-practice architectures in line with their long-term business outcomes.
– Build technical relationships with customers and operate as their trusted advisor. The best interests of the customer will shape the guidance you provide.
– Share the voice of the customer to inform the roadmap of AWS features.
– Participate in the creation and sharing of best practices, technical content and new reference architectures (e.g. white papers, code samples, blog posts).
– Evangelise and educate about AWS technology (e.g. through workshops, user groups, meetups, public speaking, online videos or conferences).
– Contribute to the growth of the Solutions Architecture organisation by interviewing candidates and having a voice in hiring decisions. You will also be helping others develop new skills by knowledge sharing
– Develop areas of depth in technical domains relevant to your interests and your customer’s outcomes.
