Job Description

Job Location: 510 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 0M3

We are looking for a Security Engineer, specializing in hardware and supply-chain security, to help ensure infrastructure supporting our highly scaled-out services is designed and implemented to the highest security standards. You will be responsible for analyzing low-level platform software such as kernel and hypervisor, firmware, and hardware designs for security issues and addressing them. This position will provide you with a challenging opportunity to drive the security of the cutting-edge technology underlying the AWS cloud computing services.

A Security Engineer at Amazon is expected to be strong in multiple domains and provide significant contributions to the AWS IT Security team and to multiple groups throughout Amazon. Security engineers are expected to develop elegant solutions to complex business problems and apply appropriate technologies while following security engineering best practices. You are also expected to mentor more junior engineers and be a security thought leader for the organization.

A Security Engineer must foster constructive dialogue and seek resolution when confronted with discordant views. Engineers in this role are expected to participate fully in the planning of the AWS IT Security team's work and constantly seek opportunities for process improvement. They should also have a deep understanding of at least one specialty for which they are a sought out resource (both within AWS IT Security and by groups throughout Amazon), while having an understanding of the application of Information Security in a broad range of technical areas.

A successful candidate will need a combination of troubleshooting, technical, and communication skills, as well as the ability to handle a mix of disparate tasks which may include project and software development work. This role will provide career growth opportunities as you gain new security skills in the course of your duties.
