Fulltime Penetration Tester openings in Portland on September 23, 2022

Penetration Testing Engineer at Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Location: Portland

Job Summary


Do you enjoy reading source code and finding unique security concerns? Do you enjoy writing proof of concept code to demonstrate the potential impact of an issue by demonstrating it? Do you enjoy protecting customers at scale? On the AWS Penetration Testing team, we enjoy doing it all.

Our team is responsible for the manual assessment of all products, services and software released by AWS. We specialize in digging deep to find security issues that static analysis tools can’t, and write the tooling to help with these goals. The AWS surface area is large and diverse, and we use results found in manual analysis to help improve our enterprise-wide automation to proactively spot and fix potential security issues to protect customers.

On this team, you will be reading and manually reviewing source code in Java, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Rust, C, and other languages to look for security bugs. On this team you’ll be writing proof of concept software to clearly demonstrate impact of an issue. This is not a software development engineering nor is it a red team position, thus you’ll need to feel very comfortable reading and writing code.

• Manually audit the source code of web services and software authored in house by Amazon
• Write proof of concept code to demonstrate the severity of a potential security issue
• Provide clear communication on issues to developers that suggest and help to test the fix
• Partner with AWS developers to drive improvement in application security as a result of security review engagements
• Provide actionable long term risk mitigation guidance
• Conduct independent vulnerability research pertaining to AWS relevant technologies.

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.

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. 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.

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.

Basic Qualifications
• A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Customer Security, or equivalent professional experience can be used in lieu of a degree.
• Minimum of 3 years of experience in source code auditing, bug hunting or CTF experience.
• Minimum of 3 years of experience with manually auditing source code (One or more of: Java, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Rust, C, others) to find security issues.
• Minimum of 3 years of experience scripting in Python or other equivalent interpreted languages.
• Minimum of 3 years of professional experience with security engineering practices such as in web application security, network security, authentication and authorization protocols, cryptography, automation and other software security disciplines.

Preferred Qualifications
• Experience with AWS technologies and services (e.g. S3, Lambda, EC2, KMS, IAM, etc.)
• Experience with bug hunting, bug bounties, capture the flag, software development
• Experience with multiple programming languages
• Meets/exceeds Amazon’s leadership principles requirements for this role
• Meets/exceeds Amazon’s functional/technical depth and complexity for this role

Amazon is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace.
