At Rapid7, we're building a security analytics platform to help customers easily find, manage and reduce risk. We seek a highly motivated technical leader to help ensure our platform is secure, reliable and available for thousands of customers that rely on it every day.

You are a problem solver, passionate about eliminating toil through development and automation. Processing billions of daily events in the cloud excites you. You are ready to partner with teams across a global organization to build a modern scalable infrastructure. You are a software developer at heart, but possess a wide range of skills across networking, Linux sysadmin, configuration management, clustered datastores, cloud services and deployment technologies. You enjoy leading people, but are happiest getting into the weeds to make a difference. Specifically for a senior role, you should be looking to demonstrate your value in the work you enable others to achieve, and not just your own output. You should enjoy learning from those around you as much as you enjoy teaching others about what you've learned.

The Platform Delivery team is a high-profile group that supports all Rapid7 products through dev tooling and cloud operations. We work directly with developers to ensure high uptime of our SaaS products. We strive to maintain a DevOps culture, empowering development while promoting security and reliability. We're a global team with a local focus and works alongside our Threat Exposure Management team to bring the next generation of security solutions to our customers. 

 

What you’ll do:

  • Engage with other engineering teams to improve the lifecycle of services on our platform - from design to deployment to operation and maintenance 

  • Optimize our SaaS platform for performance and cost effectiveness 

  • Monitor and scale distributed services in AWS and clustered datastores such as Cassandra 

  • Participate in sustainable on-call incident response followed by blameless postmortems 

  • Mentor and provide technical guidance for more junior members on the team

  • Automate infrastructure through Terraform, Chef, and Docker/Kubernetes

  • Participate in sustainable on-call incident response followed by blameless postmortems


What you’ll need:

  • 5+ years of experience scaling SaaS services and infrastructure 

  • Goal-driven, positive attitude with strong communication skills 

  • Proficient in AWS services, including EC2, RDS, VPC networking, S3, etc. 

  • Comfortable with one or more of: Python, Ruby, Javascript, Java, Bash 

  • Working knowledge with one or more of: Terraform, Kubernetes, CloudFormation, Chef, Ansible, Puppet 

  • Passionate about developer & customer experiences 

It would be great if you...

  • Have personal and community driven experience managing and maintaining kubernetes clusters in the wild.

  • Are comfortable leading projects holistically - managing the technical details, organizing and planning infrastructural work, and helping others understand the priorities and needs of that work.

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.
