An Insider's view of Rapid7

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Rapid7 encourages everyone to achieve a work/life balance. Our people are at the center of the decisions we make, including our “take it as you need it” time off policy and our hybrid working model. These things are important for me and my family, and I know my team appreciates the flexibility to manage their personal lives while balancing work.


VP, Customer Success Management

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

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Ive been on many teams in my time at Rapid7 and they have certainly “grown” from a size perspective, but more importantly, they all evolved with the changing times and needs. Some of the teams I was on were critical for our sales grown in an emerging market and though they no longer exist by name, I can see the tangible impact we made.


Sales Manager

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.
