Amazon is peculiar, AWS ProServe is no different. Like any other Amazonian, we are customer obsessed and this shows through us keeping our project timelines short, our customers’ AWS bills as low as they can, and enabling them to support themselves after we leave; we also develop and share our intellectual properties freely to enable our customers and partners.

We truly make a difference – a Cloud Architect is not a monotonous dull job. Not only do you get to play with the coolest technologies out there, we actually make history by transforming our customers’ ways of working – not just technically, but culturally and holistically too. Going home at night knowing that you did something meaningful is incredibly satisfying. – At AWS, you are surrounded by highly talented colleagues who are only a click or call away, and more than happy to help out.
