Job Description:

The AWS Security Systems Engineering team operates tools and services for monitoring and responding to malicious activity on the Amazon internal network. We collect data from all parts of Amazon's worldwide, service-oriented infrastructure.

We are looking for a Systems Engineer who is excited about operating and maintaining endpoint solutions that solve challenging problems for mission critical systems that protect Amazon and our customer data. In AWS Security our challenges are broad and deep -- we build, maintain, and manage flexible, secure, scalable, high-performance and robust tools and services. You will help implement, operate, and improve current agent services as well as work with new features to improve the customer experience and make it easier/faster/cheaper for the customer to get what they need.

In AWS, we obsess over our customers, and their trust is our first priority. Trust is earned by operating a highly respected security endpoint service to tackle new challenges at a large scale. In this role, you will manage high quality, scalable agents that are deployed to our internal endpoints around the world. You will collaborate with product owners and customers to deliver the best features, using resources and technologies efficiently. You will work with stakeholders to improve solutions for scale and satisfy a wide variety of security needs. You are detail driven and have excellent problem solving abilities. The successful candidate is passionate about delivering extensible, on-time solutions and has experience working within a high-performance team.

Work/Life Balance

Our team puts a high value on work-live balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

On-Call Responsibility

This position involves on-call responsibilities. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.

Mentorship & Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.

Our senior engineers truly enjoy mentoring more 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 try to assign projects and tasks 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.

Inclusive Team Culture

Our team is intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes we do get to work on really cool things but we also think a big reason for that is the inclusive and welcoming culture we try to cultivate every day. We're looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers; someone who will help us amplify the positive & inclusive team culture we've been 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.
