Sr. Embedded Software Engineer, Amazon Inspector

Herndon, VA
Expired: March 12, 2024 Applications are no longer accepted.
  • Full-Time

Our mission is to keep AWS customers safe and secure by helping them detect and remediate vulnerabilities at never before seen scale.

Amazon Inspector helps AWS customers improve their security posture by continuously monitoring their cloud infrastructure and associated workloads against vulnerabilities and exposures. When it comes to security, time is of the essence. Our goal is to help our customers quickly discover and remediate vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk to their organization.

We are innovating new ways of building massively scalable and globally distributed security systems for assisting our customers with security and compliance. Security services are crucial for the future and long-term success of AWS. We are rapidly expanding our team to meet our fast growing needs.

Key job responsibilities

Amazon is a fast-paced environment where we "Work Hard, Have Fun, Make History." The ideal candidate will relish developing solutions at massive scale, creating prototypes to prove ideas, instrumenting code to measure system performance, drafting proposals for new solutions to hard problems and speaking with product stakeholders to gather requirements.

This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.

About the team

Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or the office-it's about striking the right balance between your personal and professional life. We keep core in-office hours from 10 am to 5 pm, with half of us coming in earlier and the other half staying later.

We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks 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.

We are open to hiring candidates to work out of one of the following locations:
