The WiSec PE team is looking for a Wireless Security Program Manager (PM) to help manage a far-reaching wireless security program. The WiSec PM will help ensure that Amazon’s wireless infrastructure operates at the highest standards to maintain customer trust and will be responsible for procuring hardware capabilities that identify wireless threats, updating security procedures, communicating program status and needs, overseeing the lifecycle of legacy test devices, and developing innovative methods to ingest and utilize wireless data.
