As Amazon Web Services (AWS) continues to rapidly grow, we seek a Startups focused Account Manager to earn trust and help drive the growth of high-potential early, mid, and late stage startups. Your responsibilities will include driving revenue, crafting partnerships, accelerating innovation, and ensuring new startups select AWS as their primary cloud provider.

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. The AWS Global Support team interacts with leading companies and believes that world-class support... is critical to customer success. AWS Support also partners with a global list of customers that are building mission-critical applications on top of AWS services.

AWS offers a complete set of cloud services that enable all companies, from startups to enterprises, to run virtually everything in the cloud, including mobile applications, big data analytics, AI/ML platforms, and microservices / serverless infrastructures. Startups, which are now primarily born-in-the-cloud, represent a critically important and growing subset of customers to AWS. These companies have unique needs, technical considerations, sales cycles, and growth trajectories that distinguish them from traditional companies. These businesses require different engagement strategies and sales motions from sellers to effectively acquire, grow, and retain them long-term on the AWS platform.

You will align closely with counterparts in business development, marketing, inside sales, demand generation, solution architecture and partner teams to lead execution of coordinated go-to-market strategies and sales plays. You will also work closely with business development teams who are driving strategic support, global co-programming, and portfolio engagement to help drive top-of-funnel customer acquisition and accelerate seller cycles in the field.

You need to possess passion about Startups, be a self-starter with a strong entrepreneurial spirit who is prepared to work in a fast-paced, often ambiguous environment, execute against ambitious goals, and consistently embrace the Amazon Culture.

Key job responsibilities
• Ensure customer success with emerging startups.
• Drive revenue and market share in a defined territory or industry vertical.
• Accelerate customer adoption through well-developed sales engagements and successful GTM Strategy.
• Meet or exceed quarterly revenue and goal targets.
• Develop and execute against a comprehensive account/territory plan.

• Accelerate customer adoption by engaging Founders, CxO, Board of Directors and Venture Capital influencers.
• Work with partners to extend reach & drive adoption.
• Develop long-term strategic relationships with key accounts.
• Ensure customer satisfaction.
• Expect moderate travel.
