Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc.
 Arlington, VA


Job summary

AWS Security SecDevOps is a team of world-class software development engineers responsible for shaping the future of internal security tooling within AWS Security. We build innovative technologies at massive scale to help keep AWS and our customers secure. As a software development engineer on this team you will leverage modern technologies and AWS services to empower AWS security response engineers to be more productive.

You are a software developer who likes to deliver software solutions that solve business problems and delight your customers with efficiency and productivity gains. You’ve got development experience with technologies like AWS, Java, TypeScript, React, Python, MongoDB, and SQL, though you don't need experience with all of those to start. You might be a front end developer, a back end developer, or a full stack engineer - our team is growing and we have several positions open. If you have some background in security that is helpful, but not required.

We are the AWS SecDevOps team. We build all of the APIs, websites, and tools for AWS Security Operations including a Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) platform. Our team tackles the most challenging internal development efforts within AWS Security - the ones which require massive scale, constant availability, and integration with numerous other services and tools. To help delight our customers we incorporate real-time collaboration features and use purpose-built databases, while maintaining close contact with our customers throughout the development process.

Location is flexible and can be one of:

  • Herndon, VA
  • Arlington, VA
  • Seattle, WA

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.
