Sr Software Dev Engineer

3+ months agoSeattle, WA


The AWS Security Hub team is looking for a passionate and innovative senior engineer to join our young AWS security service. We need a candidate to help us build new features and functionality with a focus on security and operational excellence. As a senior engineer, you will drive broad improvements both within the team and with external integrations. You will help set the engineering excellence culture on the team. You will help set architectural and technical direction for the service.

A successful candidate is someone who has experience working with large-scale, real-time systems using streaming analytics and search technologies. You would be working on complex software systems in a customer-centric environment and being passionate not only about building good software but also ensuring that the same software achieves its goals in operational reality. 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 team. What you need is a desire to work on the bleeding edge, a desire to work on complex computer science problems, and the ability to simplify that complexity for our customers. Most importantly, you must be dedicated to the privacy and protection of our customers and be able to earn and maintain the trust of your coworkers.

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.

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.

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.
