Job description

Lead AWS Architect

Join our Fortune 500 client, a leading global professional services organization, renowned across various disciplines by Gartner. This powerhouse is spearheading European growth, recognized as Global Platinum partners for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. Their expertise in Digital Transformation places them at the forefront of industry innovation, serving some of the world's most esteemed companies. With a significant investment in expanding the Nordic practice, they seek a Lead AWS Architect within the Professional Services Practice for their Helsinki offices.

As Lead Cloud AWS Architect, you'll lead the charge in translating customer requirements into visionary strategies and roadmaps for implementing data platforms, multi-cloud solutions, and cloud data warehousing. In addition to typical Senior Cloud Architect responsibilities such as managing RFPs, facilitating client design workshops, and guiding joint solution architecture discussions, this autonomous role offers the opportunity to provide thought leadership on AWS, AI, and Analytics initiatives within the organization's cloud center of excellence.

Required Skills:

  • Certified as an AWS Solution Architect, Engineer, or Consultant, with a track record of envisioning and architecting solutions within AWS.

  • Proficiency in PaaS services related to Data, Analytics, and endpoint API interfaces—EMR, Dataproc, Databricks, etc.

  • Experience in defining migration strategies and executing workload migrations to private or public IaaS providers.

  • High-level awareness of partner technologies offering alternatives to native services like Snowflake, Cloudera, Talend, Informatica, Confluent, etc.

  • Excellent communication and presentation skills. Proficiency in Finnish language is advantageous, though fluency in English alone will be considered.
