Help us protect not only the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing environment but all of our customers as well! Since 2006, our great team at AWS has been enabling our customers to bring great ideas to life in ways that aren't possible in traditional IT environments. With AWS you can flexibly harness compute, storage, security, and other services from across the globe as your business demands them.

AWS Security is on the cutting edge of security for a wide variety of platforms and technologies including cloud services, Internet of things (IoT), identity and access management, mobile devices, virtualization, and custom hardware, all operating at massive scale. Similarly, our highly collaborative team is committed to each team member's growth as our business grows.

AWS Security is looking for a Product Security Engineer to design security controls and help validate that our services, applications, and emerging technologies are designed and implemented to the highest security standards. You will be responsible for analyzing the security of applications and services, discovering and addressing security issues, building security automation, and decisively taking action to mitigate emerging threats throughout a full secure development life-cycle (SDLC).

This role will provide career growth opportunities as you gain new security skills in the course of your work. Security engineers at AWS have an opportunity to experiment, learn, build tools, and work with teams building new technology and services at massive scale. Security engineers at all levels have the opportunity to learn from and be mentored by those who are building and securing our cutting-edge services. A security engineer is also expected to be a mentor for others and be a trusted security advisor within the organization.

A security engineer at Amazon is expected to have technical expertise in multiple domains and provide significant contributions to the AWS Security team and to multiple groups throughout Amazon. Security engineers are expected to develop elegant solutions to complex security risk problems and apply appropriate technologies while following security engineering best practices. This role requires a security engineer that can be recognized as an expert within AWS Security and by teams throughout Amazon on at least one knowledge domain, while being able to apply security engineering best practices in a broad range of technical areas.

A security engineer must demonstrate strong Amazon leadership principles. This role requires the ability to foster constructive dialogue and seek resolution when confronted with differing opinions on security risks. Engineers in this role are expected to participate fully in the planning of the AWS Security team's work and constantly seek opportunities for process improvement.

A successful candidate will need a combination of troubleshooting, technical, and communication skills. An AWS Product Security engineer must have the ability to take ownership and deliver on multiple complex objectives which may include project and software development work.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Security reviews for new products, technologies, and services

  • Secure design, architecture, and implementation

  • Secure development life-cycle (SDLC) practices including threat modeling and security testing

  • Influence decision-makers and stakeholders throughout the organization in multiple teams to achieve a consistently high security bar

  • Lead penetration testing engagements and create new testing methods and exploits

  • Create security guidance and documentation

  • Develop security tools and automation

  • Develop and deliver security training and outreach to internal development teams

  • Develop and improve metrics that drive desired behavior and security outcomes

  • Lead security projects (including security reviews, tool development, and creation of new security practices) with end-to-end ownership

  • Support for mentoring, team building and recruiting activities

VIEW JOBS 1/16/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-04-15T00:00 Do you think differently about security? Have you ever built tools that made life better for engineers and improved security? At Amazon Web Services (AWS), Security is our highest priority. The AWS Security team is responsible for the security of services offered by AWS. We are looking for a leader who can build and grow a new development team responsible for building security tools that engineers will use across AWS. As a Software Development Manager in AWS Security, you will dig in to our customers' most difficult requests, analyze and process big data, build develop tools that will improve the efficiency of engineers and the security of our systems. We are looking for a creative, self-driven leader, who likes to be close to the details. Who we are: Our team drives large scale, long-term programs across all of AWS. We focus on the really big initiatives, that require new-thinking, innovative solutions, and culture changes. What you will do: You will have the opportunity to build a new product that will be used by developers across the company to securely operate their services. This team is not fully staffed, so you'll have the chance to shape the skills and culture of the team. We have clear goals, but there is a lot of ambiguity in what we need to build; you'll have the opportunity to shape the roadmap and interact with your customers to learn how to solve their challenges. Why it matters: AWS Security has a lot of experience working across AWS to identify threats and solutions to security challenges at scale. We want to continue to build the security flywheel through automation to continue to earn our customers' trust. Why you'll love it: We are working on really hard problems and moving very fast. You will have a team of bright engineers, support from your leadership, and you'll own your space. You will be responsible for identifying solutions, trying ideas, given space to fail and iterate to produce products that your customers love. You will be given opportunities to grow, and develop a team, and work with your customers to define success. Who we're looking for: Deeply technical leaders, who stay close to the customer as well as the architecture and design. A manager who can coach their team on developing systems at scale and who reaches out across the company to enlist input from key engineers to leverage the experience of the broader team. A person who dives deep in to a problem to deeply understand how things work, when to make subtle change, and when to disrupt the status quo to achieve the right results. Someone who gets, and can communicate, the big picture and wants to build a team of people who can exercise their creativity in problem solving. Amazon.Com, Inc. Herndon VA
