About the job
Amazon is continuously innovating new services and features for our customers. Our engineers invent, build, and sometimes break things to make them easier, faster, better, and more cost-effective. However, no matter what we’re building – from websites to web services, AR to AI, drones to devices – security is always our top priority. The Amazon Application Security team focuses on working with our builders to provide experiences that our customers can trust. That means constantly learning new things and solving complex problems to protect the safety, security, and privacy of billions of lives on a global scale.
At Amazon, you’ll be working with the best minds in technology and security. Learn and be curious here, and accelerate your career growth. You can take pride in knowing that your work is meaningful, having a positive impact on others and making the world a better place.
We are looking for an experienced application security engineer to join the Application Security team. You should know how to prioritize, communicate clearly and compellingly, and understand how to maintain a high level of focus and excellence in a growing application landscape. Passion and discipline around cloud computing is critical, as is a high level of ownership and accountability.
