AWS Shield (Perimeter Protection) 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 Amazon.com can focus on their own application 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 be involved in building robust, well-architected systems and high quality user interfaces. You will be developing performant and highly scalable microservices to protect applications on AWS against external threats.
This includes new features and services that improve our intelligent attack detection and the AWS Shield user experience, like configuration management and event reporting.
