Are you interested in helping the Canadian public sector implement innovative cloud computing solutions and solve technical problems? Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for technically astute Consultants to accelerate our growing Professional Services business.

Those principles are very familiar to those who served their country in the armed forces and we welcome your application. These positions require that candidates selected currently possess and maintain an active security clearance.

Would you like to do this using the latest cloud computing technologies?

Are you familiar with security best practices for applications, servers, and networks? Do you want to be part of the team helping to establish (AWS) as a leading technology platform?

As a Cloud Infrastructure Architect you will focus on delivering innovative solutions to our public sector customers by accelerating their adoption of cloud and driving the value of their investment in AWS. Utilizing your broad and deep knowledge of technology and IT operations you will create solutions by mapping common customer business problems to reusable services focused on operational effectiveness and business value. You will work with customers to assist in:

As a member of the AWS Professional Services team, you are joining a team that invests in your success by providing comprehensive learning and mentorship programs.

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.
