Mission: Rapid7’s mission is to engineer simple, innovative solutions for security’s critical challenges.
Information security is one of the fastest growing industries, and Rapid7 is at the forefront, helping companies all over the world engineer better security.
At the core of what we do is a fun and inviting community where everyone has the opportunity to do what they love… And there's a lot to love here.
Yes, we are a cool place to work. Over the past several years we've been named one of the Best Places to Work in Boston by the two leading local publications, the BBJ and Boston Globe, and we’ve also been listed among the top 100 tech companies in Austin by Built in Austin. While great, this does not define our culture.
To be a true Rapid7 culture fit, you need to embody our Core Values. These are not just words hanging on a wall or decorating a coffee cup…
Established by a team of our own people and embraced by all who work here, they are what allow us to scale and evolve; regardless of location, team, and role. We hire for them, reward based on them, and weave them into the everyday fabric of our company. Want to see if you fit?
Yes, we pay competitively. We evaluate performance and compensation on an annual basis. However, it's not enough to just come to work and do your job. Those who see the big increases balance their skills with a great attitude, have a strong aptitude to grow, and embody our core values.
We may hire you for a specific role, but one of the best parts of working at a fast growth company is the ability to take on as much as you are capable of. Continuous learning is one of our core values, and we understand it’s vital to your growth – and ours. As you prove yourself here, there are opportunities not just to move up, but to explore other teams and opportunities around the company. If you are creating impact, Rapid7 is a fantastic place to develop your career.
Aside from promotions, career growth, and compensation adjustments, we have a number of ways for you to be recognized.
Our Moose Awards are a quarterly recognition, celebrating those people who best exhibit our core values. They are announced at our company-wide Town Hall meetings. They are peer nominated, and winners are selected by our executive team. The winners receive a stuffed Moose (our company mascot) and a cash prize. To win one is kind of a big deal.
Our guitar picks are also employee-driven. They are a daily way of people being able to recognize each other for fantastic, above-and-beyond work. Not only does the recipient get a physical guitar pick, but they also are posted in our "Hall of Fame" where everyone in the company can celebrate them.
Rapid7 is engineering better security with simple, innovative solutions for IT security's most critical challenges. Our security data and analytics solutions collect, contextualize, correlate, and analyze the security data you need to dramatically reduce threat exposure and detect compromise in real-time. They speed investigations so you can halt threats and clean up systems fast. Plus, our analytics give you the specific information you need to systematically improve security processes within your organization. Unlike traditional vulnerability assessment or incident management, Rapid7's comprehensive data collection, attacker intelligence and user-behavior analytics give you immediate insight into the security state of your assets and users from the endpoint to the cloud. We offer unmatched capabilities to spot intruders leveraging today's #1 attack vector, compromised credentials. Our ability to help goes beyond our innovative technology. Rapid7 security experts can help you advance your security program, whether you need emergency breach response or to transform your security processes and better align investments to your organization's risk and needs. Rapid7 is trusted by more than 3,500 organizations across 78 countries, including 30% of the Fortune 1000.
I have been working at Rapid7 full-time (More than 5 years)
The culture fosters great teamwork, and theres opportunity for career advancement. Strong leadership team
Most people are spread thin, internal projects tend to take a long time, difficult work/life balance.
Advice to Management
Continue to hire awesome people and talent, invest more in internal processes and operations. Be more up front about expectations of time commitments to employees.
The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rapid7 (Newton, MA).
Had three interviews in total, start with the recruiter, then hiring manager and the last was a manager. No response after the third round. At lease I deserve a rejection letter. The whole process is not good, recruiter never confirmed the time with me until I sent out a second check email. One time I sent out an email asking her to reschedule an interview, she didn’t tell the manager at all.
