AWS Shield – Sr. Software Development Engineer
Vancouver, CAN
4d ago

Job summary

AWS Shield protects applications against external threats, like vulnerability exploitation, bad bots, and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

Customers like Netflix, Dow Jones, Mapbox, Pearson, Rovio, and can focus on their own development knowing that their application is protected by AWS Shield.

Our core competency is automating the detection and mitigation of complex, large-scale security issues. The number of attacks mitigated by AWS has more than doubled year-over-year while our operational burden has declined.

When we identify a solution to a common issue, we prioritize improvements that detect and mitigate the problem safely and consistently, allowing our engineers to focus on the next big problem.

In this role, you will build software for the Shield Core team who is responsible for development of the AWS Shield product, including the management console, APIs, and resource-level detection services.

Using the console or API, customers can subscribe to AWS Shield, choose resources to protect, and configure advanced features like health-based detection and proactive engagement.

When an application running on AWS is targeted by a DDoS attack, the services that you develop will detect the event, signal mitigation, and generate reports for the customer.
