DESCRIPTION

We develop services that defend some of the Internet’s largest businesses from bad actors and malicious requests. We make it easy for customers to help protect their web applications from attacks by allowing them to configure rules that allow, block, or monitor web requests based on conditions that they define. We've recently launched AWS WAF Bot Control that gives customers visibility and control over pervasive bot traffic that can consume excess resources, skew metrics, cause downtime, or perform other undesired activities. The problems we solve are complex and constantly evolving. Join us, and you’ll influence and build innovative new capabilities at the forefront of this emerging and rapidly changing space.

We are looking for a Data Scientist to join us who is passionate about using data to drive decisions that build our Bot detection and mitigation capabilities. You'll have the opportunity to raise the bar, help in developing new systems that automatically defend against evolving threats while providing customer-facing, centralized management and visibility.
