I currently work remotely for a company based in Minneapolis but am thinking of moving back to the Twin Cities. My wife is finishing up her masters in Data Science and wanted to get an idea of what it’s like to work for Amazons Professional Services team. Are you working on internal projects or is this more of a sales sort of role trying to get companies to buy into Amazon platforms? Looking for some insight.
Here’s the job description - https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1CDGOYI_enUS705US705&hl=en-US&ei=ZQDsWZuJOKLZjwSslKyIDg&q=amazon+machine+learning+jobs&oq=amazon+machine+learning+jobs&gs_l=mobile-gws-serp.3..0l2.17138.18617.0.18903.6.6.0.0.0.0.134.547.2j3.5.0....0...1.1.64.mobile-gws-serp..1.5.547....190.DJxYKAptAJM#fpstate=tldetail&htidocid=JcBJ2bSFr1NHnMV1AAAAAA%3D%3D&htiq=amazon%20machine%20learning%20jobs&htivrt=jobs
Thanks

      Like in the city she’s working or flying out to other cities / states. I guess it makes sense to try and find someone who works in those offices to ask too

      Pro serve typically flies out to customer site on Sunday or Monday and back on Friday. AWS customers spend a lot for proserve so remote work is rare they will want you to be on site. This is not an office job. Im in the AWS enterprise support org and have worked with proserve several times.

      I have a friend at Microsoft and he’s the tech guy in the sales duo. He doesn’t work on projects as much any more and it’s more about convincing clients to sign into Microsoft products. Wonder if it’s something like that.
