Manager, European Analyst Relations, Amazon Web Services

LU, Luxembourg • Job ID 225675 • Amazon EU SARL

Job Description

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is seeking an experienced, self-starting, highly-intelligent, personable, and detail-oriented manager to join our analyst relations (AR) team. The AWS cloud computing platform is used today by hundreds of thousands of businesses and developers around the world, ranging from start-ups to Fortune 50 enterprises. These companies are consuming compute capacity, storage, database services and more in the cloud, rather than undertaking the heavy lifting of maintaining their own datacenters. By implementing systems on these foundational components, businesses can focus on adding value to their customers and getting to market quickly rather than worrying about building and scaling physical infrastructure.

Cloud computing is arguably one of the most impactful developments in technology within the last 20 years. AWS is a pioneer and leader in the fast growing field of cloud computing. The successful candidate will have the unique opportunity to drive execution of our AR program. The European Analyst Relations Manager role is tasked with driving awareness of the rapidly expanding number of services in the AWS technology infrastructure portfolio.
