You will work with your manager, peers, partners, and customers to refine and deliver on the vision and purpose of your programs. Every day, you will have the opportunity to engage with systems that are at the cutting edge of technology. You will work directly with AWS service teams, infrastructure, and administrative teams to identify opportunities to improve AWS’ security posture. You will build tooling, drive process improvements, and work with service owners to develop innovative solutions to complex technical challenges.
