Job Description

Amazon's Offensive Security Team is looking to for a passionate Security Engineer to help secure Amazon products and services by partnering with the external security research community and white-hat hackers.

This role is responsible for the engagement and operation of Amazon's newly established bug bounty program - Amazon VRP (Vulnerability Reporting Program), including validation of findings, interfacing directly with security researchers outside of Amazon, supporting internal service owners with end-to-end remediation efforts, and influencing the internal technology ecosystem to pursue best security practices.

A Security Engineer at Amazon is expected to be strong in multiple domains. Engineers in this role work closely with teams throughout Information Security, such as the Incident Response and Application Security teams as issues are discovered, as well as provide technical leadership and advice to teams throughout Amazon.

Engineers in this role must show exemplary judgment in making technical trade-offs between short versus long term security and business goals. They must also demonstrate resilience and navigate difficult situations with composure and tact. This role will be expected to provide thought leadership for the organization as you invent and innovate in the course of their duties. Above all else, a strong sense of customer obsession is necessary to focus on the ultimate goal of keeping Amazon and its customers secure.


* Research, reproduce and respond to various security vulnerabilities reported to the VRP program.
* Manage relationships with external security researchers and white-hat hackers working with Amazon.
* Lead end-to-end remediation efforts, from report through verification.
* Take a technical leadership role in innovating and driving company-wide initiatives.
* Evangelize security culture to the internal business units.
* Communicate bug bounty findings and provide technical direction with leadership and developers to create and execute remediation plans.
