HereAtAWS:What was your professional background before AWS?

Farhin: Having been a part of the IT industry for almost 10 years, I started my career as a Dedicated SQL Server Engineer / Consultant for large enterprise customers being a technical subject matter expert, a trusted advisor driving key technical projects across Finance and Public Sector. After five years into the role, when the Cloud was booming with more and more enterprises embarking upon this journey I switched roles to being a Technical Solution Sales Specialist in the area of Data, Analytics and AI helping customers accelerate their digital transformation journey by harnessing the power of relevant Cloud solutions.  

HereAtAWS:Why were you interested to join AWS?

Farhin: From a technology standpoint, AWS for me has been a pioneer in cloud computing for a very long time and has truly innovated at a tremendous pace year over year. However, technology aside one of key aspects that attracted me to AWS was the organization's culture and deep level of customer obsession. The more I read about the Amazon Leadership Principles the more I was inspired and enthused by the ever so "peculiar" way in which the company operated.

HereAtAWS: Could you please describe your role at AWS?

Farhin: In my role as a Sr. Database Sales Specialist, I am responsible for owning and driving the overall business growth, revenue and market share for all AWS database services in a defined territory or industry vertical for Large Enterprise Accounts. Actively taking responsibility of the overall territory database growth plan; I own opportunities end to end, own the commercial engagement and see them to closure by engaging a virtual team of internal & external resources such as Solutions Architects, Professional Services, Executives and Partners etc.
