DESCRIPTION

Sales, Marketing and Global Services (SMGS)
AWS Sales, Marketing, and Global Services (SMGS) is responsible for driving revenue, adoption, and growth from the largest and fastest growing small- and mid-market accounts to enterprise-level customers including public sector.

AWS Support also partners with a global list of customers that are building mission-critical applications on top of AWS services.

The AWS Activate Program provides startups the resources they need to grow successfully on AWS. We do this by understanding the uniqueness of each and every startup that applies for Activate, and then personalizing the resources we make available to them. Our resources include (but are not limited to) AWS service credits, Business Support credits, technical education and training, opportunities for business and technical mentorship from Amazonians and startup peers, and personalized growth benefits. Above all else, Activate’s goal is to level the playing field for startup founders anywhere and everywhere. We believe that great ideas come from all types of founders, from all walks of life; not only those that have the good fortune of a venture investment. AWS Activate welcomes all startup builders with open arms, and we’ll do our best to guide you through your journey, providing you with the relevant guidance, education and resources along the way.

We are building applications that will use modern architectures, new services patterns, and exciting technologies to ensure we are meeting our customers expectations for performance, availability, and features. We value diversity in backgrounds and that innovation is driven by learners, not knowers. As we deliver for our customer, we strongly encourage work-life balance; as well as, personal and professional growth.

We are looking for motivated and skilled developers with the drive and enthusiasm to build ground-up applications for startups. Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences.

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior engineers truly enjoy mentoring more junior engineers and engineers from non-traditional backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop into a well-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future. Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. 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 encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
