Job Description:

DESCRIPTION Please note: This position requires that the candidate selected be a US Citizen and be eligible to obtain and maintain an active TS/SCI security clearance with polygraph.

The AWS External Security Services (ESS) Praetoria team is looking for cleared engineers to help build the future of our products.

We are innovating new ways of building massively scalable and globally distributed security systems to assist the US Government with security and compliance.

Our team provides AWS' Intelligence Community customers with services designed around Amazon's internal security posture to improve their security experience.

Our main products include:

GuardDuty, a cloud intrusion detection service that detects unauthorized, malicious, or anomalous activity in a customer's AWS environment.

Macie - identifies security risks in a customer's S3 and DDB configuration.

Inspector - provides an overall assessment of the security posture of the system.

Detective - uses log data from AWS resources to build a linked set of data that enables analysts to conduct faster and more efficient securityinvestigations.

Security Hub - generates a single dashboard view of current findings and recommendations from across Inspector, Macie, and GuardDuty.

One of the key concepts of the ESS service offerings is its simplicity; you just turn it on and it goes to work.

These services help customers identify reconnaissance, suspicious access, stealthy discovery, attacks and changes to security critical settings.

If you have the knowledge of distributed systems to extend our security services into new regions, please apply!

In this role, you will enjoy working on complex software systems in a customer-centric environment and be passionate about building good software and ensuring that the same software achieves its goals in operational reality.

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 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

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.
