Lead Software Engineer- InsightConnect

Job Description

At Rapid7, you'll join a world class team of thinkers and problem solvers who prioritize individual growth and team collaboration over ego and attitude, while building products that solve the world's toughest security challenges.

You'll deliver the future of the Insight Connect product, an originator and innovator in the SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Remediation) space, working closely with other engineers, UX designers, and product owners. You'll participate in every aspect of product development from design and planning, through implementation and testing, to deployment and support.

What you will do

As a lead engineer on the Insight Connect team, you’ll be responsible for both high level, strategic work designing our features and services by gathering requirements and coordinating with stakeholders, as well as hands on implementation and support of those features and services. You’ll have a highly visible role on the team, providing direct day to day support to your fellow engineers as well as working with your contemporaries on other product teams here at Rapid7. You’ll be given the opportunity to demonstrate leadership capabilities over time by working your way towards a team leadership role, and eventually be given the opportunity to manage others as well.

Successful candidates aren't just good at writing code or drafting up design docs, but have a demonstrated focus on solving customer problems. You should love being challenged by your work, with a desire to ship and iterate on features, as well as an emphasis on collaboration, communication, and growth. Specifically for a lead role, you should be looking to demonstrate your value in the work you enable others to achieve, and not just your own output. Our entire team (Dev, UX, Product, Support, Sales) works together closely to ensure the success of our product, and we're looking for someone who revels in exposure to the entire process of how software is built, shipped, sold, and supported.

We value attitude and willingness to learn over ego and experience, and want someone who is looking to grow with the team as we continue to grow our product.

Our Stack

Go

React 16

Postgres

Redis

Docker + Kubernetes

Terraform

AWS

You need to be...

An extreme focus on communication and collaboration as first-class tools in your arsenal to get things done.

Focused on shipping solutions to problems, not just code.

Experienced and confident in your ability to produce working features, cohesive designs, and thought-through bug fixes.

Comfortable leading projects holistically - managing the technical details, organizing and planning epics, and helping others understand the priorities and needs of that work.

Experienced working with Product and UX to help plan and define upcoming product requirements, and working with Engineers to turn them into technical ones.

Able to navigate the tradeoffs of prioritizing new feature work VS eliminating technical risk/debt when communicating with Product and other Engineers.

Someone with a “grab a shovel” attitude, where you're excited to dig in and get your hands dirty working with your peers.

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.

Are comfortable with Linux based operating systems and tooling.

Someone with hands-on experience with React 16.

Someone with hands-on experience with Go or willing to learn.

Someone with around 6 or more years of experience that encompasses the above. We're flexible, and are looking for the right candidate - not just someone who hits a number.

It would be great if you...

Have experience or desire to manage people and provide experience and mentorship to folks on your team

Have in-depth, hands-on experience with Go, Docker, and maybe even Kubernetes

Have some general AWS / Azure /GCP experience

Are interested in the Ops side of the world (stability work, Terraform, etc)

Have experience writing and securing networked services that operate inside customer premises.

Are familiar with writing, maintaining, and tuning SQL queries.
