The AWS Security Hub team is looking for a passionate and innovative senior security engineer with a focus on compliance and security best practices for AWS services. AWS Security Hub is the security and compliance center for AWS customers. One of its main functions is conducting automated compliance checks against AWS security best practices, industry standards, and regulatory frameworks. The person joining Security Hub in this position will lead the effort to define security best practices for each AWS service, including implementation of security controls to assess compliance, remediations to respond to non-compliant events, and mappings to industry standards and regulatory frameworks.

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.

The successful candidate is one who has experience defining technical requirements for compliance and security best practices. You should be comfortable looking at an AWS service and identifying what security controls should be in place to help customers be confident that they are using that service in a secure way. You should be comfortable developing requirements that developers can utilize to translate security controls into automated checks and remediation procedures. You should also be comfortable implementing automated checks in Python or Java.

A key aspect of this job is the ability to earn trust with large network of stakeholders: AWS service owners, security expects in our solution architecture and consulting teams, Security Hub’s development team, and, most importantly, our customers. In addition to being a technical expert in security best practices and compliance, you will be a leading voice in the effort to raise the bar for security and compliance across AWS.
