Security Analyst - Operations

Description

The Team: How often have you had an opportunity to be a founding member of a team that is tasked with solving a huge business problem through technology innovations? Would you like to know more about how cutting edge in computer science like computer vision and machine learning can be used to solve these problems? If this sounds intriguing, then we'd like to talk to you about a role on a new Amazon initiative. We are highly entrepreneurial, wear many hats, and work in a highly collaborative environment that's more startup than a big company.

The Role: As a Senior Security Engineers you will help ensure our applications and services are designed and implemented to the highest standards. If you enjoy analyzing the security of applications and services, discovering and addressing security issues and quickly reacting to new threat scenarios, this position will provide you with a challenging opportunity. You will participate in security audits, risk analysis, vulnerability testing and security reviews across all elements of this project's software systems.

This role will draw on multiple disciplines:

  • Security Engineering: emphasis on operating systems and networking, foundational Internet services, modern exploitation techniques, and hacking tools.
  • Data Science and Intelligence Analysis: emphasis on detecting anomalies in large unstructured data sets, ability to synthesize data and reports from different sources, make logical inferences about that data, and publish results.
  • Software Development: ability to develop your own small tools and scripts to aid in data processing or other aspects of an investigation.

You will tackle challenging, novel situations every day and given the size of this initiative, you'll have the opportunity to work with multiple technical teams at Amazon in different locations. You should be comfortable with a high degree of ambiguity and relish the idea of solving problems that haven't been solved at scale before. Along the way, we guarantee that you'll learn a ton, have fun and make a positive impact on millions of people.
