AWS Sales & Account Manager: Benelux Region

We are pretty sure that public cloud in general and AWS in particular are the fastest moving sub sections of the IT market. The value added services offered by public cloud providers have moved well beyond simply virtualizing servers. As a result we now work on a wide range of projects and products that encompass cloud infrastructure, security and automation (of software development and deployment). We also have expanded even further and are offering managed services for those clients who require our expertise on a more permanent basis.

For people who, like us, want to be at the forefront of technological developments and constantly challenge the status quo we really can’t think of a better place to be. 

If you are passionate about creating new business, closing deals, building excellent partnerships with enterprise customers, guiding cloud professional’s through the sales cycle, and being part of an amazing AWS Premier Partner sales team and the broader sales community of Xebia, this is the job for you.
