Sr AWS Alliance Manager
As an Alliance Manager, you will have an exciting opportunity to build mind share and adoption of ClearScale’s services offerings with our partners and customers. A significant portion of this role will be dedicated to managing and expanding our partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Your responsibilities will include building strong relations with AWS and channel partners, and jointly with ClearScale’s sales and marketing teams, lead campaigns focused on driving revenue, services adoption, and market penetration within SMB, Startup, and Mid-Enterprise markets.
The Alliance Manager will engage with AWS field sales and partner sales organizations to communicate ClearScale’s differentiation and capability. Specifically, the Alliance Manager will work with AWS Partner Sales Managers, Sales Executives, District Managers, and Business Development Managers. The Alliance Manager will build cadence around key activities, including planning monthly and quarterly sales outreach, facilitating joint AWS/ClearScale campaigns and GTM initiatives, reporting on KPIs and opportunities, and collaborating with AWS inside sales and demand generation teams. In addition to managing regional AWS partnerships, you will facilitate joint solutions and lead flow with ClearScale’s channel partners.
The Alliance Manager role reports to the VP of Business Development and contributes towards a regional sales quota, hence the ideal candidate has a strong background in selling technology and engaging with executive decision makers. Selling technology-based transformational services is complex and requires a person to understand the various roles each stakeholder plays in the process. You will have a natural ability to network and think strategically about solution selling, be motivated, take initiative, be a true team player. You will possess strong business development, strategic alliances, project management, and entrepreneurial skills, as well as technical background that enables you to lead GTM and alliance activities with AWS.
Ideally, you have expertise with the AWS ecosystem, possess an understanding of cloud services sales and partner-based selling. You have built relationships with AWS teams, and AWS SI and ISV partners, and have a track record of overachieving quota/KPIs.
This position is remote and focuses on managing ClearScale’s Alliance in the East, hence US-East locations are preferable. We will consider other US locations for exceptional candidates.
