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.
