Manager, Security Engineering - Infrastructure Security

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 Security Engineering Manager to lead our Infrastructure Security team, who empower our employees to design, build, and use infrastructure securely at scale so our company and customer data are protected from compromise. Whether it involves endpoints, networks, or cloud infrastructure, our Infrastructure Security team partners 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.

A day in the life…

You’ve just finished meeting with the rest of your teammates in the Security Engineering group as part of our bi-weekly retrospective meeting. Someone from the Application Security team just finished talking through a really good piece of feedback that has you thinking: why couldn’t we evolve our cloud infrastructure security strategy to further shift left in our software development lifecycle? As ideas start popping into your mind, you start jotting down notes for a new project plan to add to the Security Engineering roadmap for next quarter.

After a few minutes, it dawns on you that DivvyCloud might have some yet-to-be used features that could bring those ideas to life. You dive into our DivvyCloud console and, after a few minutes of poking around, stumble upon a new feature for scanning Terraform templates for insecure cloud resource configurations, like public S3 buckets, before they get applied in production. It seems promising, but you’re not entirely sure, so you set up a video call with one of the cloud security subject matter experts on your team and our Platform Delivery team to collaborate on brainstorming this idea with both of them. It’ll have to wait until later that afternoon, though, since you have a meeting in an hour with the Senior Director of IT Infrastructure to get their feedback on a business case you’ve been drafting for a new BeyondCorp-type zero trust networking solution (that slide deck isn’t going to polish off itself!). 

Both of your meetings end up going great. You got a lot of feedback that will make these projects more successful with a greater level of cross-functional buy-in for each of them. After spending some time updating your notes and slides based on this feedback, you start to prepare for a one-on-one meeting with one of your team members where you’ll be reviewing their individual development plan (IDP) with them. Now that you think about it, there might be an opportunity to align their IDP with this latest cloud security project idea. Exciting!

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.
