Security is a very important consideration for any application connected to the internet. Amazon Cognito helps customers secure some of the most critical data including credentials of the end users of their mobile or web applications. Amazon Cognito provides easy to use authentication, authorization, and user management for web and mobile apps. As the customer demand is increasing rapidly, we are poised to grow the team to add new functionality that will delight all our customers from the developer directly using our service APIs, to the IT administrators managing our customers' identity solutions and to the end users logging into the customers' apps. We need brilliant managers to work with us on this new initiative and help us tackle new challenges.

Our team 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.

We are looking for a Software Development Manager to lead a growing team of software development and security engineers. As a leader you will own the core technology powering Cognito authentication and advanced security features. You will build features to enable customers to rapidly and effortlessly build an easy to use, frictionless signin and signup experiences for their own customers, providing an always-on internet authentication and authorization for end users with a fully featured customer identity experience with strong, adaptive protection mechanisms and access to cutting-edge techniques that help prevent, detect, mitigate and respond to today's complicated threat landscape

You will be architecting the systems for many user personas as well as different scales. You will work with product managers, and other stakeholders to drive your roadmap. You will work with multiple technical and product teams to balance project prioritization, focusing on delivering a consistent customer experience to all AWS customers.

At Amazon, we hire hands-on managers at all levels. This leader must be able to dive deep into the details on business, operations and engineering. We need technical, detail-focused leaders who can build and grow organizations. You'll need to excel at hiring and developing software engineers. You need to be able to grow leaders in your organization and define a charter that grows as your organization grows. Our services operate at large scale and on critical workloads, so a passion and discipline around operational excellence is key. You'll also need to be willing to share big ideas and execute to deliver the next big innovations at rapid pace.
