  • Description: AWS MENAT AGS Organisation is looking for a Specialised Solution Architect with an emphasis on media delivery - origination services, CDN, DRM, and player technologies. The successful individual will work with our customers and prospects designing and delivering hybrid and cloud-based video solutions using the AWS Elemental portfolio of Media Services (AWS Elemental MediaLive, MediaConvert, MediaConnect, MediaStore, MediaTailor, and IVS - Interactive Video Service). In this role, your creativity will link technology to tangible solutions, with the opportunity to define or invent cloud-native reference architectures for a variety of use cases. Specialist Solutions Architects are thought leaders in AWS technology and industry trends. As such, you will participate in the creation and sharing of best practices, technical content, and new reference architectures (e.g., white papers, code samples, blog posts) for video technology. You will evangelize and educate about AWS Elemental video technology and AWS Media Services (e.g., through workshops, user groups, meetups, public speaking, online videos, or conferences). If you can educate AWS customers about the art of the possible, while challenging the impossible, come build the future with us.

  • Key job responsibilities: Building next-generation architectures requires both a depth and breadth of understanding of the technical, operational, and business challenges each Media & Entertainment (M&E) customer is facing. You will build technical relationships with customers of all sizes and operate as their trusted advisor, ensuring they get the most out of the cloud at every stage of their journey by making recommendations to accelerate their challenging, mission-critical projects. Internally, you will be the voice of the customer, sharing their needs and wants to inform the roadmap of features for the media service's portfolio.

  • About the team: Why AWS Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. We pioneered cloud computing and never stopped innovating — that’s why customers from the most successful startups to Global 500 companies trust our robust suite of products and services to power their businesses.

  • Work/Life Balance: We value work-life harmony. Achieving success at work should never come at the expense of sacrifices at home, which is why flexible work hours and arrangements are part of our culture. When we feel supported in the workplace and at home, there’s nothing we can’t achieve in the cloud.

  • Inclusive Team Culture: Here at AWS, it’s in our nature to learn and be curious. Our employee-led affinity groups foster a culture of inclusion that empower us to be proud of our differences. Ongoing events and learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences, inspire us to never stop embracing our uniqueness.

  • Mentorship and Career Growth: We’re continuously raising our performance bar as we strive to become Earth’s Best Employer. That’s why you’ll find endless knowledge-sharing, mentorship, and other career-advancing resources here to help you develop into a better-rounded professional.
