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

You’ll be involved in 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. You’ll work collaboratively with others to enable our customers to automate their security practices and get more done with less time. Our product has an emphasis on a high quality user experience, as our visual builder, configuration components, and overall experience are tailored to taking complex processes and distilling them into simple and straightforward workflows for users.

You'll also be heavily involved in the design and planning work of upcoming features, as we expect our engineers to be first class stakeholders in all parts of the development process. You’ll have the benefit of working with an embedded UX team and the Product Owner, who work deeply with our product to understand the customers needs and craft features that enable them to orchestrate their security processes simply and easily. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to mentor and be mentored by a talented group of engineers, both on your team and across the company.

Successful candidates aren't just good at writing code, 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. 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…

  • Focused on communication and collaboration as first-class skills.

  • 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.

  • Familiar with making software development decisions from conception and design to implementation and shipping in production

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

  • Someone with solid grasp on writing testable code, and can mentor others in the practice

  • Experienced with performance benchmarking and analysis

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Comfortable with git and basic git workflows.

  • Someone with around 5 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 with Golang development and common tooling

  • Have Docker, rkt, or other container experience

  • Have worked with Container orchestration (Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, Mesosphere, etc.)

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.

Senior Brand Storyteller

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.

Global Director of Sales Engineering
