DESCRIPTION

Job summary
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security team is looking for a Software Development Engineer who has a strong passion for security-at-scale. You will work on a small team dedicated to building new services, features, and tooling to improve AWS Security capabilities. We develop the tools that keep AWS safe from malicious actors, preventing, detecting, and mitigation security events. We work closely with our Application Security, Threat Intel, Security Operations, and Security Analyst teams, to drive security improvements.
The AWS Resource/Network Security is responsible for the security and availability of all of the services offered by AWS, including EC2, S3, and more than 100 others. This is a high visibility team that solves security challenges at a massive scale.

Our team deals with immense quantities of data, pushing the envelope on scale and various advanced analytical techniques to find and mitigate security threats. You€™ll work to develop robust large scale distributed systems for processing data. While you may not be a security expert just yet, you have a passion for solving security challenges in innovative ways. You€™ll develop a broad and deep understanding of the overall AWS security posture and develop many of the core technology components to improve and scale.

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren€™t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we€™re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life€”both in and outside of work.

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we€™re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon€™s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

We understand the importance of flexibility and don€™t want where you are to be a barrier. We want most of our people close enough to their core team that they can easily travel to the office for a meeting within a day€™s notice. Our primary locations include Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; San Jose, CA; San Luis Obispo, CA; Santa Monica, CA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Austin, TX; Atlanta, GA; Herndon, VA; Arlington, VA; Annapolis Junction, MD; New York, NY; and Boston, MA.

Additional locations that will be considered include Phoenix, AZ; Tempe, AZ; Meridian, ID; Winchester, KY; Detroit, MI; Minneapolis, MN; Las Vegas, NV; Jersey City, NJ; Pittsburgh, PA; Charleston, SC; Nashville, TN; Huntington, WV; and Madison, WI.
