7 days agoNew York, NY


Job summary
The AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) team is in need of engineers who want to change the way developers across the world think of TLS/SSL certificates. ACM is used by hundreds of thousands of customers across AWS. You will work with AWS customers and internal developers on projects critical to the security of communications and identity on the internet. You will get the opportunity to change the way systems interact with certificates, turning a traditionally painful interaction to a painless and automated experience. With your help, we will turn certificate expiration and unencrypted connections into a thing of the past.

We value individuals who don't accept the status quo. We value those who push leadership and their peers to do the right things for the right reasons. Ideas don't come from the top, but as a collaboration across all levels. We succeed by enabling and encouraging ideas from all the voices in the room.

You'll have the freedom to choose from a wide range of technologies to solve complex problems. You will learn how to apply world-class distributed computing practices and deployment safety standards in the world of interconnected, managed, cloud-based services.

ACM is part of the larger AWS Cryptography organization. AWS Crypto is a diverse mix of smart, hardworking, and amusing people who build customer-facing products, encryption libraries, and perform research into the future of cryptographic standards. If you love cryptography and security software, there isn't a better place to be. If you don't know anything about security, you'll learn about it in a supportive and passionate environment.
