Amazon Corporate LLC Lead Software Engineer, Amazon Detective in Seattle, Washington

Job summaryDo you want to design and build the next generation of big data security analysis? Systems that display isolated security findings or alerts are showing the tip of the iceberg. Our innovative, graph-based security analytics approach lets you see what's below the waterline.Analysts ask "I received this security alert - now what?" Our service combines security log data and threat detection events into a single view, providing graph visualizations and algorithms to answer analyst questions, triage, and investigate incidents.Analysts can use time series analytics to get insight into attacker tactics, and explore incident blast radius. These capabilities are powered by our distinctive security behavior graph - a materialized, pre-joined, aggregated view of activity over time.You will be involved in a broad variety of back-end engineering functions - system/component-level design and implementation, system monitoring, operational excellence and DevOps processes - and will work closely with our science team to detect insightful anomalies in scale. Our service is a complex distributed system with data processing and ingest, an internal graph store and query engine, and significant user-facing features on the roadmap, providing many opportunities for ownership and delivery.Work/Life Balance & On-Call ResponsibilityOur team puts a high value on work-life balance. We generally keep core hours from 10am to 4pm. Some of us start earlier and some of us stay later. After a learning period, you will join the on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We work hard to build fault tolerant systems to minimize how often we get paged. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.Inclusive Team CultureHere 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.
