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 many security issues 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. As a part of the Emerging Technologies Security Engineering group, we help AWS launch brand new products and invest in emerging technologies securely. We are looking for a technically deep Senior Security Engineer to help secure our foundational platforms such as kernels, virtualization, device emulation, firmware and hardware. You will be responsible for conducting security reviews, threat modeling, developing tooling that will help detect security issues at scale and hands on security evaluations (pen-testing). The successful candidate must be comfortable diving into complex engineering discussions, and leveraging deep security expertise to ensure proper risk assessment and threat analysis is performed. You will provide crystal-clear technical direction and risk mitigation guidance for diverse engineering and business leaders at all levels. By applying your hard-earned years of practical security engineering expertise in projects related to enterprise networking, hardware-rooted security, operating system hardening, and cloud-scale administrative infrastructure, you will literally shape the future of cloud computing. A Senior Security Engineer at Amazon is expected to be strong in multiple domains and provide significant contributions to the AWS IT Security team and to multiple groups throughout Amazon. Security engineers are expected to develop elegant solutions to complex business problems and apply appropriate technologies while following security engineering best practices. You are also expected to mentor more junior engineers and be a security thought leader for the organization. A Senior Security Engineer should foster constructive dialogue and seek resolution when confronted with discordant views. Engineers in this role are expected to participate fully in the planning of the AWS IT Security team's work and constantly seek opportunities for process improvement. They should also have a deep understanding of at least one specialty for which they are a sought out resource (both within AWS Security and by groups throughout Amazon), while having an understanding of the application of information security in a broad range of technical areas. A successful candidate will need a combination of troubleshooting, technical, and communication skills, as well as the ability to handle a mix of disparate tasks which may include project and software development work. This role will provide career growth opportunities as you gain new security skills in the course of your duties.
