Job summary

Are you passionate about developing impactful, novel Machine Learning (ML) technology strategy and taking it to large-scale production? Are you passionate about engaging the AI community (AI researchers, developers building AI products, roboticists making robots that work, data scientists, and innovative entrepreneurs in hot startups and large enterprises)?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform our society and community for generations. Impacting transportation, mobility, telecommunication, energy, healthcare and insurance, rescue and emergency response, hospitality. Achieving this requires implementing one of the most complex computing systems to-date at unprecedented scale. AWS Autonomous Compute is taking a fresh approach with providing an end-to-end, scalable cloud environment that simplifies the development, scaling and production deployment of AI technology. Including a global cloud footprint, infinitely scalable storage, advanced networking and security, state-of-the-art AI platforms and services, rigorous engineering, and a team with the longest experience building cloud technologies.

AWS AI/ML team is seeking a Senior Solutions Architect (SA) for our AI/ML business. The SA will be responsible for defining, building and deploying effective and targeted technology strategy to accelerate broad pre-sales engineering activities. The SA will facilitate the enablement of solutions architecture with specific customer centric value proposition and demos about end-to-end AI technologies – data ingestion, data preparation, model development including architecture optimization, model validation, large-scale orchestration, deployment and model lifecycle management – on the AWS cloud with AI/ML frameworks. The SA will directly interface with the AWS product and software development teams regarding customer and partner requirements. The SA will work closely across multiple internal and external organizations – AWS product engineering, business development, sales, marketing, partners, and machine learning research communities – to position the AWS platform for customers and partners; and provide guidance on the value proposition and benefit to those customers and partners.
