Job Description


Amazon Payments Services build systems that process payments at an unprecedented scale, with accuracy, speed, and mission-critical availability. We process millions of transactions every day worldwide across various payment methods. Over 100 million customers and merchants send hundreds of billions of dollars moving at light-speed through our systems annually. We are re-inventing the vision of our platform to provide the best payment gateway service, benchmarked against the top external alternatives.

As a Security Engineer, you will solve some of the most challenging and interesting problems to effectively mitigate large-scale threats. You’ll secure the design and implementation of several internal and external payments services. If you enjoy analyzing the security of secure channels, services, mobile and web applications, but also creating and implementing secure designs and protocols, working within development teams to innovate, finding solutions to security problems at scale, this position will provide you with a challenging opportunity.

A Security Engineer in Amazon, expected to be strong in multiple domains will be sought out for advice on technical issues.

They must also demonstrate resilience and navigate difficult situations with composure and tact. The successful candidate must be one that can handle several difficult challenges and problems, can make risk-based assessments founded on data and facts rather than older static based security paradigms, though being aware of the older best practices.
Additionally, the successful candidate will be:

  • Methodically empirical and experimental in approach and evaluation without being bound by over paralysis-by-analysis
  • Be an enthusiastic learner and curiosity seeker, focusing on what can be done rather than hindered by notions of what cannot be
