The Team: Go is a new kind of store with no lines and no checkout—you just grab and go! Customers simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take what they want from our selection of fresh, delicious meals and grocery essentials, and go!Our checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by our Just Walk Out Technology, which automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you are done shopping, you can just leave the store. Shortly after, we will charge your Amazon account and send you a receipt. Check it out at Designed and custom-built by Amazonians, our Just Walk Out Technology uses a variety of technologies including computer vision, sensor fusion, and advanced machine learning. Innovation is part of our DNA! Our goal is to be Earths' most customer centric company, and we are just getting started. We need people who want to join an ambitious program that continues to push the state of the art in computer vision, machine learning, distributed systems and hardware design.The Role:The Security Engineer is responsible for MDIR (monitoring, detection, interpretation and response), including preparation, documentation, managing the Incident Response process end to end, and coordinating with teammates and other teams. Additional duties include security technology management and design, boundary and network defense, endpoint defense, vulnerability remediation, and threat hunting. The Security Engineer is also responsible for providing technical analysis and remediation of assets on the network during active incident response engagements. The Security Engineer must be able to provide forensic collection and analysis of infrastructure device logging information, as well as use threat hunting tooling during active incident response engagements. The Security Engineer is also tasked with vulnerability scanning and penetration testing duties as required. Security Engineers are prepared to design, implement, and maintain complex security technologies and projects that support the underlying security policies and procedures to protect information assets. Additionally, the Security Engineers provides input to the creation of new and updates to existing policies, standards, and practices as necessary.This role will draw on multiple disciplines: Incident Response: Triaging, recovering, and rebuilding Infrastructure devices during incidents while collecting forensic evidence for later analysis. Maintain skillset on security and vulnerability trends. Remediate systems based on supplied threat intelligence information. Recommend and remediate information systems based on incident attack vectors witnessed and exploited. Security Engineering: Emphasis on operating systems and networking, foundational Internet services, modern exploitation techniques, and hacking tools. Forensics: Ability to learn, modify and develop new forensic techniques, script and automate those techniques and think outside the box, not only defensively but as a threat actor. Data Science and Intelligence Analysis: Emphasis on detecting anomalies in large unstructured data sets, ability to synthesize data and reports from different sources, make logical inferences about that data, and publish results. Software Development: Ability to develop your own small tools and scripts to aid in data processing or other aspects of an investigation.You will tackle challenging, novel situations every day and given the size of this initiative, you’ll have the opportunity to work with multiple technical teams at Amazon in different locations.
