Job Description

The Security penetration testing team is looking to hire a Senior Penetration Testing Engineer to join its ranks. Our team is responsible for manual assessment of all products, services and software released by AWS. We specialize in digging deep to find security issues that static analysis tools can't, we write tooling to help with these goals. The AWS surface area is large and diverse, and we use results found in manual analysis to help improve our enterprise-wide automation to proactively spot and fix potential security issues to protect customers.

Our Senior Engineers are experts in their field. They are able to influence management practices and help shape the direction of AWS application security. This role is perfect for someone with both breadth and depth of technical ability who wants to be part of solving internet-scale problems.

This is a hands-on technical role that includes mentoring, guiding, and support of junior engineers. In addition to developing better engineers, this role will help make changes to the way we work, advising on process and procedure to make the team better. That could be by developing tools, advising management, owning programmes, or something else entirely. We want smart, creative engineers who want to contribute to the entire team.

On this team you will be reading and manually reviewing source code in Java, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Rust, C, and other languages to look for security bugs. We don't expect you to be an expert at those languages, but we do want you to be curious and able to learn new things quickly.

On this team you'll be writing proof of concept software to demonstrate impact of an issue. This is not a software development engineering nor is it a traditional red team position. You won't be phishing people or writing enterprise-grade software, but we do hope you can script your way out of a problem.

If you're passionate about finding security bugs, writing tools to reduce manual testing, developing others, impacting management, and enjoy seeing your work's impact across the internet, then we'd like you to help us solve some interesting and complex problems.

Responsibilities: · Execute manual penetration testing and source code review engagements against a variety of web services and software · Develop other engineers · Advise management · Own projects · Write automation to help scale security testing at AWS · Provide actionable long-term risk mitigation guidance · Conduct vulnerability research pertaining to AWS relevant technologies · Write proof of concept code to demonstrate the severity of a potential security issue · Provide clear communication on the issue to developers, suggest and help to test the fix · Partner with AWS developers to drive improvement in application security as a result of security review engagements, · Execute manual penetration testing and source code review engagements against a variety of web services and software · Develop other engineers · Advise management · Own projects · Write automation to help scale security testing at AWS · Provide actionable long-term risk mitigation guidance · Conduct vulnerability research pertaining to AWS relevant technologies · Write proof of concept code to demonstrate the severity of a potential security issue · Provide clear communication on the issue to developers, suggest and help to test the fix · Partner with AWS developers to drive improvement in application security as a result of security review engagements
