Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the pioneer and recognized leader in Cloud Computing. Our web services provide a platform for IT infrastructure in-the-cloud that is used by hundreds of thousands of developers and businesses around the world. These customers range from start-ups to leading web companies to Global 500 companies in financial services, pharmaceuticals, and technology. As a part of AWS, Amazon EC2 enables customers of all sizes to run their applications on our industry leading cloud infrastructure. EC2 redefines the economics and physics of computing, reducing the time to build a datacenter to minutes. Customers use EC2 to rapidly scale capacity up and down as their computing requirements change.

Amazon EC2 offers different pricing models to customers to help optimize their EC2 spend as their applications scale up and down. One of the pricing models, Amazon EC2 Spot Instances, allows users to take advantage of EC2's spare capacity at discounts of up to 90% of the On Demand model with the caveat that AWS may reclaim Spot Instances when needed by customers who are willing to pay the On Demand price. We are looking for a Sr. Business Development Manager to help define and execute the strategy to grow the EC2 Spot business.

You would use your business savvy to drive revenue, develop sales programs, and identify new opportunities with a specific focus on helping users take advantage of EC2 Spot. You will work directly with the most interesting and demanding customers from the world's hottest startups to the largest enterprises to understand their requirements and turn them into reality.

Working hand in hand with our product team, sales teams, and solution architects, you will help customers leverage the scale of EC2 cost-effectively using EC2 Spot Instances. Your background in cloud-friendly, scalable architectures will help customers understand how to scale their infrastructure on the cloud. Your excellent verbal and written communication skills will allow you build sales enablement tools, evangelize our platform with our enterprise customers, start-ups and valued partners.

The ideal candidate will possess both a business background that enables them to drive an engagement and interact at the CxO/VP level, as well as a technical background that enables them to easily interact with cloud architects who want to drive down costs or speed up jobs. He/she should also have a demonstrated ability to think strategically and analytically about business, product, and technical challenges, with the ability to build and convey compelling value propositions, and work cross-organizationally to build consensus. A keen sense of ownership, drive, and Bias for Action is a must.

  • Work closely with teams inside AWS customers to ensure they are successful using our web services, especially EC2 Spot, and that they have the technical resources required.

  • Serve as a key member of the AWS Platform Business Development team focused on helping to drive overall AWS market and technical strategy.

  • Fill the business development pipeline by engaging with prospects, partners, and key customers.

  • Understand the technical requirements of our customers and work closely with the internal development teams to guide the direction of our product offerings.

VIEW JOBS 10/21/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-01-19T00:00 Do you want to shape the future of virtualized (SDN) networking in one of the world's biggest public clouds? The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) VPC Packet Pipeline team owns the packet pipeline that runs right beneath all our customer's EC2 VPC instances, adding features like firewalls (security groups), routing, billing and monitoring as we touch every single packet on every single host across our worldwide fleet in more than 20 regions. Our vision is to combine the performance of bare metal networking while maintaining all the benefits of the cloud, including delivering features not possible on bare metal leading to true Software Defined Networking (SDN). We are growing fast, and are looking for kernel/embedded C programmers who can deliver ultra-high performance - our goal is to be processing many millions of packets per second on embedded CPU cores. This requires both being able to implement highly optimized data structures, but also low level tuning to our hardware. If you have good experience in C/C++, and a passion for systems software engineering such as kernel or embedded development, then this is a unique opportunity to join us in building the platform which is the basis for all new EC2 VPC features in the years to come. You can have an immediate impact for all of our customers including internal customers such as AWS Lambda, and external customers that run on Amazon EC2 as we deploy new features and updates regularly and often. With the extensive network and access to Principal, Sr. Principal and Distinguished Engineers across EC2, AWS and Amazon, there are many stretch opportunities to grow your skills and knowledge. Your responsibilities will include: * Being an engineer on a small team, mentoring junior engineers, ensuring the right development practices are followed. * Be very hands-on; work with the engineering team to manage the day-to-day development activities by leading architecture decisions, participating in designs, design review, code review, and implementation. * Maintain current technical knowledge to support rapidly changing technology, always on a look out for new technologies and work with management and development team in bringing new technologies. * Communicating with users, other technical teams, and senior management to collect requirements, describe software product features, technical designs, and product strategy For more information on Amazon Web Services please visit: http://aws.amazon.com/ Amazon is an Equal Opportunity-Affirmative Action Employer – Minority / Female / Disability / Veteran / Gender Identity / Sexual Orientation Amazon.Com, Inc.
