Job Description

Are you passionate about contributing to open source? Are you excited at the prospect of keeping millions of customers' data safe? Do you want to help secure web services by implementing cryptography at scale? Security is the #1 concern of customers moving to the cloud and the AWS Cryptography team is dedicated to providing the security features our customers need. We enable customers to confidently move sensitive workloads to the cloud where they can benefit from strong security controls that help meet internal and external compliance requirements. AWS Key Management Service and AWS CloudHSM provide encryption and key management services, while AWS Certificate Manager handles the complexity of provisioning, deploying, and managing certificates.

The AWS Crypto Tools team helps AWS customers protect their sensitive data inside and outside of the cloud by building and maintaining easy to use, secure, open source encryption tools and libraries.

We are looking for an experienced Technical Program Manager (TPM) with an interest in practical cryptography to join us in building the most secure and user-friendly tools available to help our customers protect their data and accelerate use of cryptography in all AWS services.

You should have experience designing scalable, customer-centric systems and a passion for delivering secure software solutions. In partnership with senior leaders, principal engineers, and security specialists, you will own delivering and supporting cryptographic tools and libraries used by internal and external customers around the world.

In this role, you will own global, company-wide initiatives that demonstrably improve the security posture of all Amazon and AWS services. In partnership with service teams, you will design and deliver optimal KMS integrations and identify and build tools to make encryption simpler, while at the same time improving performance, availability, and security. Additionally, you will work with external customers to deeply understand their cryptographic needs and design tooling to make encryption easier to get right and harder to get wrong.

As a key member of a foundational team, you have the unique opportunity to influence and shape the strategy for the next generation of our security platforms and tools. You will have end-to-end technical responsibility for one or more components - from defining the product roadmap to initiating, defining and executing the projects necessary to make the roadmap a reality. This is a highly visible role offering the opportunity to interact at all levels of the organization and the company. This role is ideal for you if you have a passion for building massively scalable digital security systems and want to make a significant impact on this fast-growing, cutting-edge, business.
