Rapid7 Mission

Security operations teams are underserved. Impactful outcomes are few and far between and cost more than expected. Hundreds of security vendors build solutions for 1% of companies who have 10x more of everything, yet still get breached. The security gap grows wider daily; security operations teams deserve better.

At Rapid7, we can close the gap by serving customers intentionally. We choose to believe:

  • The status quo maintains the gap, so we challenge convention

  • Every company is unique - we deliver extensible, adaptable solutions enabling the outcomes matching the customer's needs

  • There is strength in numbers, so we provide tools to security, IT, compliance and business partners to make an impact together

  • Security needs champions, so we advocate for security within corporations, governments and beyond

  • Attackers are relentless, so our job is never done

The Opportunity

In 2015 the Insight Platform began with a simple idea: security teams drown in data. There is no shortage of alerts, incidents, threats, vulnerabilities, malware, cloud accounts, databases, assets...you name it. It takes every drop of a security team's energy to tread water, leaving teams running on fumes for the actual progress needed. We believe when data collection is simple, world-class analytics are accessible, and automation-powered collaboration is ubiquitous, customers will achieve better security outcomes. 

Then, in 2018, we launched InsightConnect to power the automation behind the Insight Platform. InsightConnect began transforming security programs by connecting the tool stacks of security and IT teams, to achieve efficiency through automation. To accomplish that, we have built over 300 plugins and nearly 200 pre-built workflows (use-cases) over the past 3 years...but, we can and need to do more. The barrier to adoption is higher than it should be - customers need to deploy on-premise technology to run these integrations when many of the integrations connect to SaaS services. Why not just talk cloud-to-cloud securely, saving our customers from the deployment hassle? Our customers also want to connect more of their software tools. Why not allow them and partners to build and run their own integrations in the Rapid7 cloud, securely? And lastly, our customers own multiple Rapid7 products - Why not allow them to reuse their integration credentials & configurations to make it easy for them to connect & use their toolstacks from any Insight product?


We’re looking for an engineering leader who favors execution, is obsessed with customer outcomes, is unafraid to dive into challenging problems, and can deliver secure solutions that can scale...all to evolve the way Rapid7 delivers integrations and security outcomes to customers.

Role

If the above sounds exciting, and you are looking for an opportunity to drive tremendous impact in a growing market through an emerging Security, Orchestration, Automation and Response product called InsightConnect, help our customers achieve success in increasing their operational efficiency through automation, and grow an integral part of Rapid7's security operations platform and overall expansion strategy, this could be the role for you!

You will be focused on

  • Creating platform services to bring our on-premise integrations to the Rapid7 Insight cloud and run them at scale to serve 10,000+ customers and with millions of requests / day.

  • Building, maintaining, and releasing our various backend services, as well as helping to shape and define our standards and best practices as they evolve within our team, and in our company.

  • Make automation through InsightConnect intuitive and accessible across the Rapid7 platform by working closely with UX and PM

Responsibilities
  • You advocate for the customer by understanding, empathizing, and driving teams to collaborate to find the best engineering solutions to solve customer problems

  • Deeply involved in building, maintaining, and releasing our various backend services, and doing these at scale

  • Working cross functionally across the organization to build solutions that solve customer problems and communicate regularly to stakeholders with updates around progress, blockers, issues, and considerations.

Qualities
  • You have a growth mindset. In a growing company, responsibilities grow faster than resources can be deployed. You are comfortable with ambiguity, while striving for clarity and purpose. You know how to grow

  • You have grit; long-term focus on projects, and adaptability to uncertainty, are not easily deterred and can see the forest for the trees

  • Resiliency - Ability to partner with others and drive toward solutions with minimal to no oversight

  • You’re data-driven - Ability to create, plan, and use operational data like metrics & observables to make informed engineering decisions for our customers and teams

  • Willing to learn, and willing to teach. Everyone brings something new to the team, and we want to learn from you as much as we want to grow you as an engineer and a team member.

Skills
  • Someone with a record of success delivering complex software engineering projects. You’ve built software “from scratch” — all the way from inception to production use by an active customer.

  • Strong organizational skills and ability to handle multiple ongoing projects and tasks at once.

  • Experience working on the backend of a SaaS company or ownership of a large software project for 5+ years

  • Experience with Docker, Kubernetes, Flask, and other related technologies.

  • Experience working on backend systems in Go, Java or .NET.

Rapid7 (Nasdaq: RPD) is advancing security with visibility, analytics, and automation delivered through our Insight cloud. Our solutions simplify the complex, allowing security teams to work more effectively with IT and development to reduce vulnerabilities, monitor for malicious behavior, investigate and shut down attacks, and automate routine tasks.

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.
