Amazon Software Development Manager, Infrastructure Security in Minneapolis, Minnesota


At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we provide world-class, flexible, scalable, and secure cloud services to the world’s fastest growing startups, the largest enterprises, and leading government agencies. We do this by building, maintaining, and securing one of the largest, most complex infrastructures in the world. Within AWS, the Infrastructure Security – Threat, Vulnerability, and Operations (InfraSec-TVO) organization is comprised of multiple teams responsible for threat intelligence, vulnerability management, and security operations across the global AWS infrastructure.

The AWS InfraSec-TVO team is seeking a Software Development Manager (SDM) to lead our Security Telemetry and Automated Response team. In this role, you will be responsible for leading the development, maintenance, and growth of our Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Security Orchestration and Automated Response (SOAR) platforms. Your direct reports will consist of Software Development Engineers focused on building new service and automation capabilities, as well as Security Engineers focused on onboarding new telemetry sources and enhancing detection capabilities. Through servant leadership of your team, partnerships with other InfraSec leaders, and constant customer obsession, you will work to raise the bar and elevate InfraSec-TVO’s software capabilities by developing innovative solutions to complicated problems.

AWS leads and innovates. We don’t just buy off-the-shelf software or follow others. We research and pursue the best approach for the business, whether that’s building new solutions or leveraging existing ones. AWS, and Infrastructure Security in particular, operate at massive scale and as a result, demand the highest standards, passion, and discipline for information security and software engineering. A high level of ownership and accountability is a must for this role.
