Job description


Job summary
Would you like a career that gives you opportunities to help Media and Entertainment (M&E) customers leverage the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform? Are you obsessed with bringing digital transformation to video and content workloads in the cloud? Do you like to work on a variety of cloud services, building and implementing solutions on top of the AWS platform? Are you a passionate learner about Cloud technologies? Are you constantly exploring/improving cutting edge solutions in the Cloud? Do you love to write code and automate processes?

AWS is looking for experienced Application Architects, who have developed and maintained software in production environments, to help M&E customers accelerate their own success in the AWS Cloud. This builder position will join the Professional Services delivery team focused on AWS’s industry changing efforts in Production (Pre and Post), Broadcast, Media Supply Chain, Distribution and Data Science. This is an excellent opportunity to join AWS’s world class technical teams, working with some of the best and brightest engineers while also developing your skills and furthering your career within one of the most innovative and progressive technology companies.

As an M&E Application Architect at AWS, you will have the opportunity to take AWS products, 3rd party products/services, and build solutions on top of Amazon’s cloud services (Amazon EC2, Amazon S3/Glacier, Amazon CloudFront, AWS Elemental Media Services, AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, AI/ML Services, AWS Thinkbox, and EC2 Spot, etc.) within our largest media customers. Application Architects on our team have 6+ years of software development experience typically with 2+ years of video based workflow experience.

Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn’t about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it’s about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and locations, and we encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

We are passionate about building and growing a well-rounded and collaborative team. We are dedicated to supporting new members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates continuous learning, knowledge sharing, and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, yet kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects that help you develop into a world-class Application Architect who can take on more complex tasks in the future.

What you’ll do:
· Develop solutions built on top of AWS core products for core video and media workloads.
· Write production grade code in several languages.
· Contribute software and “Infrastructure as Code” into a CI/CD pipeline, along with documentation, to allow us to hand over the solution to the customer.
· Participate in pre-sale customer evaluations and discussions as a subject matter expert on AWS solutions.
· Work with other technical teams, to ensure solutions are well-architected and can be successfully delivered.

Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have thirteen employee-led affinity groups, reaching 85,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here. We are a customer-obsessed organization—leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. As such, this is a customer facing role in a hybrid delivery model. Project engagements include remote delivery methods and onsite engagement that will include travel to customer locations as needed.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded professional and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

This is a customer facing role. You will be required to travel to client locations and deliver professional services when needed.
