Hi, some recruiter just reached out this week, anyone has an idea about this?

How's the reputation and teams over there?
I know if you are joined amazon might as well join AWS to make the most of it! But does this perimeter protection team really work on distributed system etc...

The position is for sde

      I was wondering AWS have highly valued skills, if perimeter defense can acquire those skills too.

      So far from job description they offer protection to AWS service... I guess that is trivia.

      DDos prevention, DDos response team blablabla, anomaly detection team, web application firewall etc...

    Its the arm that does ddos mitigation, protecting all of Amazon/aws and all customers. They have different teams, WAF, ddos response team which is basically a noc24/7 oncall Noc/soc, a team that writes the ddos mitigation code, and another team that deals with traffic analysis.
