DESCRIPTION



Cloud security is our highest priority at AWS. As an AWS customer, you benefit from an environment built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.

We are looking for an experienced security leader to join the AWS AppSec team. As a security leader, you will own building and managing a team of security engineers and leaders, fostering a strong team culture. You and your team will be responsible for reviewing and testing our new services before release, partnering closely with our development teams to produce innovative and secure solutions. We're looking for a leader that's highly passionate about the potential of cloud computing and building a high performing security team.

Security Managers at Amazon have a track record of delivering high quality technology products and services in a hyper-growth environment where priorities shift quickly. You should know how to prioritize, communicate clearly and compellingly, and understand how to drive a high level of focus and excellence with a strong team. AWS in general, and AppSec in particular, operates at very large scale and demands high standards, so a passion and discipline around security and delivery is critical. A high level of ownership and accountability is a must.
