Location is flexible anywhere in the contiguous United States, however access to a major airport is required for travel purposes.

Do you like helping people envision new ways of securing a cloud infrastructure? Do you have ideas for new ways to enhancing security operations and documented best practices? The AWS Professional Services team works with Public Sector and Nonprofit customers to accelerate, optimize, and secure their journey to the cloud.

AWS offers a cloud platform with a global reach and we are looking for a passionate and innovative technical security implementer. You’ll have the opportunity to create new security experiences & environments for our customers covering topics including strategy & risk management, building & deploying security infrastructure, or automating security operations...and beyond.

You should be a highly technical security professional who has the ability to take customers on a journey through securing their infrastructure. You will develop highly scalable applications that adhere to cloud and security best practices.

Our Consultants work with Federal Government customers locally, regionally and potentially domestically. Consultants may be required to travel to client locations to deliver professional services as needed (50 to 75% if not based in DC, VA, MD).

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.

Mentorship & Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.
