Software Development Engineer, AWS Security Hub

1 month agoSeattle, WA


The AWS Security Hub team is looking for passionate and innovative Software Development Engineers to join this fast-growing AWS security service. Come and build the future of AWS Security Hub with us as we change the way the world manages their security in the cloud at never before seen scale. There are many providers of products and services which produce security findings, with each provider having their own specialty. Historically, customers needed to either manage findings from each provider they use independently, or build a custom solution to tie them all together. Security Hub makes that far easier for customers by creating a single place to view and manage security information for all of their accounts in one place, with normalized structure, and hooks for building automation solutions.

We need an engineer to help us build new customer-facing APIs, features, and functionality with a focus on security and operational excellence. You will be building and running large-scale, real-time, customer-facing services. You will be responsible for the end-to-end development lifecycle from scoping, planning, conception, design, implementation and testing, to documentation, delivery and maintenance. You will provide design reviews for other engineers, including feedback on architecture and design issues, as well as integration, performance and scalability. There is no set technology and the team firmly believes in using the right tool for the job.

You don't need to have a security background to be successful on the AWS Security Hub team. What you need is a desire to work on the bleeding edge, to work on complex computer science problems, distributed systems, and the ability to simplify that complexity for our customers. Most importantly, you must be committed to the privacy and protection of our customers, and be able to earn and maintain the trust of your coworkers.

About the team:

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.

Mentorship & Career Growth:
