Job summary
At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we provide world-class, flexible, scalable, and secure cloud services to the world’s fastest-growing startups, the largest enterprises, and leading government agencies. We do this by building, maintaining, and securing one of the largest, most complex networks in the world. Within AWS, the Network Security Organization – Threat and Vulnerability Management (NSO-TVM) team is responsible for threat intelligence, vulnerability management, security information and event management (SIEM), and overall network security across the global AWS network.

The AWS NSO-TVM team is seeking a Software Development Engineer II to join our NSO-TVM Software Development team. In this role, you will be responsible for building, maintaining, and scaling the software solutions that support our threat intelligence, vulnerability management, SIEM, and other network security tools. In partnership with other Software Development Engineers, Security Engineers, and Technical Program Managers, you will work to raise the bar and elevate NSO-TVM’s software capabilities by developing innovative solutions to complicated problems. Successful candidates will possess an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for their work. They will be self-motivated and comfortable setting their own direction in an always-changing and highly-complex environment.

AWS leads and innovates. We don’t just buy off-the-shelf software or follow others. We research and pursue the best approach for the business, whether that’s building new solutions or leveraging existing ones. Amazon Web Services, and the Network Security Organization in particular, operate at massive scale and as a result, demand the highest standards, passion, and discipline for information security and software engineering. A high level of ownership and accountability is a must for this role.
