Amazon Corporate Security’s (ACS) mission is to deliver a safe and secure workplace for all Amazonians. The Business Assurance Center (BAC) supports this mission by providing 24/7 global security operations center (GSOC) services to roughly 500k global corporate customers, serving as a single point of intake for corporate security issues worldwide.

The BAC is looking for talented security managers to support our rapidly growing GSOC program. A successful candidate will have a strong track record of managing operational security programs, vendor contracts and performance, and driving positive service relationships among a diverse group of stakeholders and customers. Success in this role will require flexibility, bias for action, and a wide range of technical and interpersonal skills. Time management and continuous task prioritization is crucial to delivering support services in this dynamic, fast paced environment.

Key job responsibilities
• Directly manage diverse teams responsible for the remote security monitoring and incident management of Amazon corporate offices around the world.
• Oversee the drafting and publication of written products and communications, including the editing and quality management of all written products.
• Track and manage vendor key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure consistent performance in line with the BAC’s core service delivery standards.
• Manage competing priorities, including concurrent security events, by directing and allocating personnel resources, and escalating to managers and stakeholders as necessary.
• Manage Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to ensure consistent service delivery across multiple functional levels.

A day in the life
As a Corporate GSOC Operations Manager, you will own service delivery across a team responsible for the daily operational work within the BAC. New hires must excel in vendor management and be able to provide senior-level direction and tactical response to operational issues encountered by their teams. You must obsess over our internal and external customers, triaging and responding to their security needs, and leveraging your outstanding verbal and written communication skills. This is a shift-based role within a 24/7 operation. You may be expected to work evenings, holidays, and weekends.

About the team
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and are committed to building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring. We care about your career growth as a passionate learner who is motivated to take on challenges.

Our team values work-life harmony. Availability for the GSOC’s 24/7/365 operation is imperative to maintaining proficiency in this role, and we understand that striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success at Amazon. We encourage members of the team to use personal time as needed to cultivate this balance and to promote a productive and well-balanced life— both in and outside of work.
