About the job


Do you enjoy designing and building software solutions that provide value to your customers? Are you interested in using the latest technologies to build tools to maintain compliance and enhance customer security?

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security’s Evidence Collection Automation Team (ECAT) is looking for a customer focused, motivated, and experienced candidate to be a part of our growing team. If you are passionate about designing and building software that improves the user experience for your customers, we want to hear from you!

What do we do?

We build software that streamlines verification of security compliance through automated solutions. We analyze existing processes to identify manual, laborious, and repetitive tasks and replace it with automated workflows. Our tools are used by external customers, security auditors, and internal service teams. We also emphasize operational excellence and continuously monitor and optimize our services to maximize efficiency.

We are growing and launching new tools and initiatives. We are looking for experienced developers to write code that works at Amazon scale, mentor junior developers, understand and improve our agile processes and help us evolve a vision of compliance and security at AWS.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a rapidly growing team in a technically challenging and rewarding role.

In This Role You Will

  • Write high-quality, efficient, testable code in Java and other object-oriented languages.
  • Build highly available, secure, distributed systems of microservices.
  • Find out what it takes to engineer systems for “Amazon Scale”.
  • Have full ownership and operate the systems that you build based on real-time customer data and demanding service-level agreements.
  • Make a direct contribution to planning, design, implementation, testing, operations, and process improvement as a member of an Agile team.
  • Be part of growing, tight-knit team within a wider community of experienced and knowledgeable engineers.

Open to hiring in the following locations: Seattle WA, Portland OR, NYC NY, Boston MA, Herndon VA, Arlington VA, Dallas TX.

Inclusive Team Culture

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well balanced life—both in and outside of work.

Remote Work Options Available

We value your time to innovate and recognize the need for heads down time to focus on a build. We also value in-person collaboration and time spent face-to-face. Our team affords engineers with options to work in the office every day or work remotely in a flexible hybrid schedule.

Mentorship & Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects 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.
