Come and build the future of Security at AWS!

Each day, hundreds of thousands of developers make billions of transactions worldwide on our cloud. They harness the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable innovative applications, websites, and businesses. The AWS Security team owns security for all of these services offered by AWS, including EC2, S3, and many others. Our team works with the many AWS teams to solve security challenges at massive scale. We enable the trust by building services that meet the security goals of our customers, from compliance to analysis.

Here are just a few areas our Security teams focus on:
· Building technologies that help customers strengthen their security posture and better meet security requirements in the AWS Cloud

· Dealing with immense quantities of data from millions of sources to monitor and support hundreds of AWS teams keep their services secure.

· Supporting AWS Service teams in meeting the security requirements for host logging, patching, and vulnerability detection

If you have a passion for application and data security, we’d love to hear from you. Previous security experience is not required.

We are looking for highly intelligent software and systems professionals to join us and help us continue to raise the security bar for cloud computing. You should be somebody who enjoys working on complex system software, is customer-centric, and feels strongly about delivering results. You should be passionate about solving security hurdles in innovative ways. We do not desire to simply produce good software here at AWS Security... we want to produce disruptive, history changing innovations.

You'll be part of a world-class team in a fast-paced environment that has the entrepreneurial feel of a start-up. This is an opportunity to operate and engineer systems on a massive scale, and to gain top-notch experience in cloud computing. You'll be surrounded by people who are smart, passionate about cloud computing, and believe that world class service is critical to customer success.
