The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Worldwide Revenue Ops (WWRO) mission is to enable the AWS field organization to be the most efficient and effective in the world. We are building a security team to protect not only the WWRO computing environment that supports that mission, but our customers as well!
WWRO Security is on the cutting edge of security for a wide variety of platforms and technologies including cloud services, identity and access management, third-parties, and analytics, all operating at massive scale. Similarly, our highly collaborative team is committed to each team member’s growth as our business grows.
WWRO Security is looking for a Security Engineer to design security controls and help validate that our services, applications, data stores. third-parties, 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 in WWRO 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 WWRO 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 WWRO Security and by teams throughout AWS on at least one knowledge domain, while being able to apply security engineering best practices in several 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 constantly seek opportunities for process improvement.
A successful candidate will need a combination of troubleshooting, technical, and communication skills. A WWRO Security engineer must have the ability to take ownership and deliver on multiple objectives which may include project and software development work.
