AWS Security owns security for all services offered by AWS and builds innovative services that secure the foundation of the AWS cloud from security threats. We work with service and security teams across AWS to solve security challenges and operate at the convergence of the hottest areas in tech: Big Data, Analytics, Security, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, and AI. We're looking for engineers who are passionate about tackling security challenges at Amazon scale.
As a Software Development Engineer (SDE) at AWS Security you’ll work with other technical teams like data scientists, data engineers, security engineers, and other software development engineers to build and scale solutions to secure the AWS platform. The services you'll build will have a global impact, proactively protecting every single AWS customer, both internally and externally, from security threats – not many teams can say that!
Our teams are hiring in several locations including:
Annapolis Junction, MD, Arlington, VA, Boston, MA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, Herndon, VA, New York City, San Francisco, CA, San Luis Obispo, CA, Santa Monica, CA and Seattle, WA.
Previous security experience is not required.
If you meet the basic qualifications listed below and would like to learn more please reach out to Branden Hankins at email@example.com.
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 hybrid office schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work. We are builder-operators of our services at AWS and have a modest on-call rotation where you’ll participate approximately once every 1-2 months.
Mentorship & Career Growth
Our teams are dedicated to supporting new team members. Teams have a mix of experience levels, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior engineers and managers truly enjoy mentoring junior engineers and engineers from non-traditional backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews.
We care about your career growth. We assign projects and tasks based on what will help team members develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on complex tasks in the future.
Inclusive and Diverse Culture
Our teams are intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes, we do get to build cool services, but we also believe a big reason for that is the inclusive and welcoming culture we try to cultivate every day.
We’re looking for new teammates who are enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers. We want someone who will help us amplify the positive & inclusive team culture we’re focused on building.
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.
