AWS, or Amazon Web Services, offers numerous tools and services to help streamline and simplify your business’s computing needs, but it can be difficult to know which one to use when. That’s where job roles come in. Job roles are classifications based on the type of work you do within AWS, so picking the right role will maximize your team’s efficiency by ensuring that the right person has the right access to the right information at all times.

DevOps Engineer 

DevOps (or developer operations) engineers work closely with developers and IT administrators to automate, update, monitor, and fix issues on a particular app or service. In some cases, DevOps engineers may actually develop and maintain those apps or services. Either way, their goal is always to make sure that apps are working properly for customers and making sure everything is updated quickly when that isn’t happening. As you might expect from such a role, DevOps jobs require skills from both development and IT; knowledge of several programming languages is common as well as experience with server maintenance. The starting salary for a developer/admin hybrid like DevOps engineer can be as high as $98k. (Bureau of Labor Statistics) 

Product Manager – AWS CloudFormation 

CloudFormation has grown to be an incredibly important service for users of Amazon Web Services AWS CloudFormation allows customers to provision and update large numbers of resources, either manually or via code. This can include anything from a complete stack (think multiple servers running an application) down to adding instances to a group. With CloudFormation, customers do not need to understand what is required to stand up their services at a low level. Instead, they can focus on building their applications or micro services on top of infrastructure that is automatically created for them by CloudFormation. 

Solutions Architect – AWS OpsWorks Stacks 

Automate configuration, deployment, and management of your applications on Amazon Web Services with Elastic Beanstalk and Ops Works. You can use integrated workflows to automate packaging your code into an application container, deploying and configuring infrastructure components such as load balancers, scaling groups, security groups, Auto Scaling instances, Amazon EBS volumes and IAM roles. Create a new stack directly from an existing instance or base it on one you already have running. For example: You could create a MySQL database on top of an EC2 instance for your WordPress installation. Just choose your instance type or launch a new one in our cloud within minutes and begin using it immediately through the self-service console. 

Solutions Architect – AWS EC2 Container Service (ECS) 

An EC2 Container Service is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run applications on a managed cluster of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. The Service enables you to launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to get these applications automatically deployed across a cluster of Amazon EC2 instances, and provides features that enable networking across your containerized applications. You can use ECS for deploying stateless microservices-based distributed systems or traditional stateful server-based workloads. In addition, there are many open source projects available that provide additional tools or images for specific purposes such as continuous integration and continuous delivery. 

Solutions Architect – AWS Elastic Beanstalk Environment Management Services 

A professional with a Solutions Architect background will assist customers with application migration to AWS and design custom environments. He or she will have a keen understanding of cloud infrastructure, performance, security and scalability issues. A Solutions Architect can easily translate business requirements into technical specifications. One of his duties is to help create a deployment model for your specific needs by making best use of Amazon EC2 services such as EC2, Auto Scaling groups and Elastic Load Balancing. He or she also understands how to install and configure software running on Amazon EC2 instances as well as on applications used for backups and replication.
