  • Job Description

    AWS is hiring Solutions Architects to build tools that provide automated architectural guidance for customers. This is a new team, so you will get a chance to help build tools from the ground-up, such as conversational interfaces and ML-enhanced search. We are building a cross-functional team of Applied Scientists, Software Development Engineers, and Solutions Architects to tackle this problem. We have the potential to fundamentally change and improve how AWS' customer-facing technical teams operate.

    AWS is one of Amazon’s fastest growing businesses. More than a million active customers, from Airbnb to SAP, use AWS Cloud solutions to deliver flexibility, scalability, and reliability. We are looking for hands-on, highly technical individuals who have experience building complex, AWS-optimized architectures. You must be comfortable with distributed systems, be familiar with current software development tools and methodologies, and have at least some exposure machine learning, including popular libraries and model training.

    In this role, you will be working with a core team of Solutions Architects, Software Development Engineers, and Applied Scientists. You will spend the majority of your time focused on building tools that enable automated architectural guidance; however, some time will also be spent working with related teams that created scripted application deployments, and helping our prototyping teams build solutions for customers that accelerate cloud adoption. The ability to work independently, balance priorities, and collaborate effectively across teams and functions is critical for this role. This is not a pre-sales position; we are hiring builders who can own technical projects end-to-end.

    New York City-based candidates are preferred.

    Basic Qualifications

    • 10+ years hands-on experience working in highly-technical positions
    • 5+ years experience working with virtualized/cloud-based infrastructure platforms
    • Proficiency in at least one popular modern programming language, such as Java, Python, or JS/React

    Preferred Qualifications

    • Advanced degree in Computer Science or a related field
    • Professional experience building cloud-based architectures for customers
    • Hands-on experience training and deploying machine learning models that help solve real-world problems


    Amazon is an Equal Opportunity-Affirmative Action Employer – Minority / Female / Disability / Veteran / Gender Identity / Sexual Orientation.
