AWS Security is seeking creative engineers to join a high-performance team building new systems to improve security of the AWS cloud.

At Amazon Web Services (AWS), Security is our highest priority. Our team's primary focus is on designing and building internal services that help us scale and constantly improve our security. At AWS, we believe that humans and data don't mix. As a Systems Developer in AWS Security, you will be responsible for building, operating, and enhancing large-scale systems.

In this role, you will:

• Work with range of cutting edge technology, including building with AWS services.
You're a great fit if:
• You're excited about making the AWS cloud more secure
• You love automating things
• You are a lifelong learner, you like taking things apart and figuring out how they work
• You ask \"why\" a lot, and until you get to the answer
• You believe that Security should be a place where solutions are invented and problems are solved (not a place where we say \"no\" to ideas)
• You've got serious coding and scripting skills
