The AWS Factory program is centered around understanding the needs of providers and equipping them with the technical and business guidance they need to be successful. This is key to AWS becoming the platform of choice for current and future providers. Addressing this market need is the goal of the Factory program. Amazon Web Services is looking for world class candidates to lead our partners on this journey.

The Factory engagements will vary based on the needs of the partners, including optimization of existing solutions, building of new products, or migration to a multi-tenant model.
You should have a broad and deep set architecture and design skills. We're looking for infrastructure and/or development builders who have hands-on, in-the-weeds experience. Your background must also include time working directly with customers and prior experience working with partner communities is a plus. You will get the opportunity to work directly with senior engineers at both top vendors and AWS service teams, influencing their roadmaps and driving innovation. Previous AWS experience is preferred but not required. Strong public speaking and writing skills are required. In this role, you will also have the opportunity to write white papers, deliver technical webinars, and speak at events.
This position can be based in Seattle, Irvine, Dallas, Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, San Francisco, Herndon, Houston, Boston, or New York, or anywhere where we have a major AWS presence. Relocation offered from within the US to office locations only. This role cannot be based in Colorado.
Work/Life Balance
Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.
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. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
