"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead.
The days of corporate firewalls being the most prominent component of a strong information security defense are long gone. Industry trends including mobile, IoT, SaaS applications, and cloud computing are driving the need for new zero trust architectures that put digital identity as the cornerstone of modern digital security. And new privacy regulations such as GDPR are forcing customers to rethink their legacy identity and access management systems and look for more modern cloud-based solutions. AWS Identity provides services that enable customers to control who can access what in the cloud. Our services enable identity, resource, and access management as well as governance across all of our customers' AWS accounts. We support ALL AWS services in ALL AWS regions around the world, and 100% of AWS customers use our services. We take our responsibility for securely enforcing access control for AWS customers as our absolute top priority.
We are looking for an enterprising software development manager (SDM) to help incubate a new engineering team to design, build and launch a large-scale events, subscription and notification management system in the cloud identity space.
This is an opportunity to operate and engineer systems on a massive scale, and to gain top-notch experience in cloud computing. At Amazon, SDMs own the structure and strategy of their product. You'll own the goals, end-to-end development, and support of your team's roadmap. You'll work with stakeholders across AWS to collaborate and launch new services. You will own ensuring your service can scale to support your customers; integrating with multiple AWS services across all AWS regions. You will partner with engineering managers and senior engineers to coach your team through scalable and highly-available technology choices. If this excites you, come join us in Vancouver, CA and help AWS continue to write the cloud computing story for the industry.
Inclusive Team Culture
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 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.
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. This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. 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 members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects 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.
