What if security was an opportunity and not an obstacle? What if it wasn’t a clunky afterthought, or a cumbersome requirement preventing you from doing the things you really want to do? What if you could securely advance your business with clarity and confidence? We like the sound of that, too! At Rapid7, we believe in simplifying the complex through shared visibility, analytics, and automation that unite teams around challenges and successes of cybersecurity. Our products and services empower over 9,100 customers across over 120 countries to seamlessly build security into the heart of their organizations.

Rapid7 continues to grow, and so does our attack surface. That’s why we’re looking for a Lead Cloud Security Engineer to join our Security Engineering team, who empower our employees to design, build, and use applications and infrastructure securely at scale so our company and customer data are protected from compromise. This role will partner closely with our Platform Delivery (DevOps), Software Engineering, and IT teams to provide secure-by-default infrastructure by using a “guard rails, not gates” approach.

Your profile

Are you passionate about building scalable solutions to cloud security problems and helping your fellow security practitioners do the same? Do you believe security should empower people to do their work safely and productively? Are you a security optimist, recognizing that humans are the most important part of the solution rather than the weakest link in the chain? Do you find yourself daydreaming about new solutions to old problems?

If you’ve been answering “yes” to these questions, then you might be the person we’re looking for! Keep reading to learn more about this unique opportunity to work on a security team at a security company.

An Insider's view of Rapid7

What does your typical day look like?

For the majority of the day it’s a mix of weekly check-ins with various teams, project updates, and the occasional brainstorm.

When I’m not in meetings I’ve got headphones in while planning, writing, or designing — at my desk or perched somewhere around the office.

What are some things you learned at the company?

When we talk about being a moose and impact together, what we are saying is that we support each other on our journey forward. We actively look for ways to collaborate, strengthen our ideas and learn from each other, no matter what department you may be in at Rapid7.
