Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for experienced and motivated technologists who possess a unique balance of technical depth, strong interpersonal, and business acumen to drive enterprise transformation. You will partner with AWS delivery teams, service teams, partners, and customer engineering teams to develop and execute highly scalable, flexible, and resilient cloud solutions that address customer migration use cases and accelerate the adoption of AWS. As trusted customer advocates, the Modernization Solutions team helps organizations understand best practices around advanced cloud-based solutions, and build multifaceted offerings and solutions from our rapidly growing portfolio of AWS products and technology platforms that are used globally by AWS Professional Services and our APN Partners to accelerate our Enterprise customers' outcomes. You will help shape and execute a strategy to deliver solutions for a broad range of customer use cases primarily from large enterprise customers. You should also have a demonstrated ability to think strategically about business, products, and technical challenges.

Containers provide a standard way to package your application's code, configurations, and dependencies into a single object. Containers share an operating system installed on the server and run as resource-isolated processes, ensuring quick, reliable, and consistent deployments, regardless of environment.

Serverless Computing allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about infrastructure or server-based operations. With serverless computing, your application still runs on servers, but all the server management is done by AWS. At the core of serverless computing is AWS Lambda and API Gateway. These powerful capabilities build on the wider serverless ecosystem of tools including Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Cognito, AWS Step Functions, Amazon SQS and SNS, Amazon Kinesis, AWS IoT, Amazon S3, etc.

In this role, you will be part of a team that develops customer solutions, service offerings, communities of practice, and prescriptive guidance to accelerate customer value through modern application development platforms, patterns, and practices. The team will identify barriers to enterprise adoption and develops repeatable strategies and mechanisms to overcome these barriers. Increasingly, developers are moving to a "cloud native" application development approach.

Roles & Responsibilities include:

· Collaborate with AWS field teams, service teams, pre-sales, specialist Solution Architects, partners and support teams to help partners and customers learn and build modernization offerings around Containers, Serverless, Microservices, decomposing databases to modern data architectures.
