The AWS Sales team is responsible for serving the needs of medium to large enterprise customers. We take pride in leading customers through an accelerated and innovative cloud journey and creating long-term business relationships of value and trust. As part of the AWS Sales team, you will have the opportunity to work alongside a motivated team that values and encourages diversified perspectives and ideas to best equip customers with the most innovative and comprehensive solutions.
Key job responsibilities
As a Senior Sales Leader within our Healthcare & Life Sciences Vertical, you will have the opportunity to lead a sales team which focuses on adoption and expansion of our full service portfolio with our customers. You will be at the heart of the latest sub-industry trends like genomics, biopharma, drug discovery, and medical devices.
You need to possess passion about Life Sciences, and qualities of a self-starter and leader 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. We work backwards from our customers, focusing on their use cases and defining how our broad set of technology solutions can help them. Planning for market adoption, setting vision and strategy for your team, and pivoting on emerging market trends are all things you will do on a daily basis.
You will help to identify with your team where our products need to go next to better serve our customers. You will help drive revenue, adoption, and market penetration in accounts. You will hire and develop high performance teams that are focused on customer obsession and working backwards to help customers achieve outcomes. You will also be responsible for building your go-to-market initiatives across functional teams, specialist, and partner teams to help scale our business.
A day in the life
Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.
