Platform Services

Company Description

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.

For more information, visit our website, check out our blog, or follow us on LinkedIn.

The Opportunity

Rapid7’s Platform practice is seeking a Senior Engineering Director to oversee the development of the core capabilities that are the foundation of our suite of SaaS security products. We’re looking for a proven technology leader to help drive our expansion mission by ensuring our portfolio of security solutions work better together to secure our customers' environments, empowering developers to build effective cross-product experiences, and enabling our internal teams to efficiently sell and support our products.

This is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys building solutions for other builders and being at the center of a growing ecosystem. You will connect data, products, teams and systems to enable our customers to integrate our products into their security programs. You’ll make it easier for customers to use what they need when they need it by reducing the purchasing friction involved with expanding across our product suite. Most importantly, you will drive the growth and development of an engineering team that is critical to the success of all of our SaaS products including InsightIDR, InsightVM, InsightCloudSec and InsightAppSec.

This is your chance to join a company on its path to $1b in revenue while it is still nimble enough for your impact to be widely felt. If you have a passion for technology and developing people, and enjoy working at the seams between teams to enable others, this unique opportunity could be for you. Come help build the future of how Rapid7 delivers its product offerings!

In this role, you will:

  • Establish a new team, known internally as the X-Team, focused on strategically important short term engagements

  • Work as an effective leader across the organization, and collaborate with Product Management and other teams to translate the business priorities of the company into a technical agenda

  • Minimum of 8+ years of engineering leadership experience with a proven track record of successful development and delivery of complex, enterprise-class software

  • Track record of retaining, developing, motivating, and mentoring highly effective teams

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.

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.
