Senior IT Auditor, AWS, Internal Audit



Arlington, VA, USA
Posted on Sunday, July 7, 2024


At Amazon we're working to be the most customer-centric company on earth, and that includes protecting our customers and their data. To get there, we need exceptionally talented, bright, and driven people. Do you have a passion for architecture, security, software design and innovative technologies? Do you see security, compliance and risk management as business enablers? Amazon’s Internal Audit team is seeking a technology auditor to perform assessments of Amazon Web Services. You will have the rare opportunity to dive deep into the internal architecture of AWS infrastructure and services to assess operational risks and security posture.

The ideal candidate is an experienced technology or security professional who can dive deep into a variety of complex architectures, identify risks and ensure AWS services are designed and operating securely. You will support the planning, scoping, execution, and reporting based on identified risks. Assessment scope may include identity and access management, key management, data security/privacy, service monitoring, release management, and service availability.

You will bring independent and objective points of view to provide support to service teams and their partners to identify opportunities for control improvements to mitigate risks, ensure compliance and improve operational performance. In this capacity, you will gain valuable exposure to many areas of our global business.

This position will challenge your current understanding of AWS services. You will have a broad technical background and the ability to learn new technology concepts quickly. You are someone who is curious and known for diving deep into subject matter, taking ownership, and encouraging innovative and pragmatic solutions to complex problems. In addition, you will have solid business judgment, enthusiasm for risk management, the ability to gain trust and respect of business leaders, and the capability to guide a fast-paced organization to the right results.
