AWS Cryptography | Seattle, WA, USA | Full-time | ONSITE | https://github.com/aws/crypto-tools

Hi internet!

I manage the Core Libraries team within AWS Cryptography. We develop open source encryption libraries that are used by major AWS services like S3, DynamoDB, etc, as well as external open source customers. We work within a larger Crypto Tools team that makes a whole bunch of neat software, and the group is run by a phenomenal leader (@jamieelisea) who truly cares about the people who work for her.

The team is currently working on the AWS Encryption SDK, which is a client-side encryption library designed to make it easy for you to encrypt and decrypt data using industry standards and best practices.

We're using cutting edge tools like formal verification to raise the security bar, and we get to work in many different languages. (C, C++, Go, Java, Javascript, Python, Rust... you get the idea. We touch a lot of code.)

I'm looking to hire a new software development manager. This person should care about humans, believe in crafting high quality software (think slow and awesome, not move fast and break things -- that doesn't go well in cryptography), and be excited to learn about cryptography. Domain expertise in security and cryptography is a plus, but not required. I'd like to see candidates with at least 3 years of experience with direct people management, but if you're really excited about this role and you're a little shy of that please reach out anyway -- I'd love to talk.

Diversity and inclusion is incredibly important to us. Our engineering team has a nearly even split between men vs. women and non-binary people, and we work very hard to be welcoming and kind to everyone. If you think diversity isn't important then we aren't a good fit.
