Highly-trained engineers, large network of subject-matter experts

At AWS, we hire smart Cloud Support Engineers that are well versed in DevOps technologies, automation, infrastructure orchestration, configuration management and continuous integration, and who are not constrained by how “things are usually done”. Cloud Support Engineers held to same standard for technical aptitude as AWS software development organization. We also have a vast network of subject-matter experts ranging from Solutions Architects to product managers that can come off the bench to help you as needed.

Engineers empowered to help you achieve your goals

At AWS, Cloud Support Engineers do not simply follow a run-book. Rather, AWS engineers stay with Support cases from the start all the way through to resolution. This model avoids the need for escalation paths typically employed by support organizations and eliminates the need for customers to interface with multiple support engineers, which can slow down time-to-resolution and allow you to move faster in your cloud journey.
