The Opportunity

Rapid7’s Platform Engineering practice is seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join a new software team dedicated to enhancing the foundations of our SaaS portfolio of security products and increasing the agility with which we deliver new capabilities. As a member of this team, you’ll help to kickstart new ideas and functionality as well as collaborate with other teams on high impact, highly visible initiatives.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is adaptable and embraces a variety of challenges. As a part of a unique team, known internally as an X-Team, you’ll work on a series of different but focused software development engagements across our Insight Platform. Through these engagements, your team will build up a set of skills and relationships that enable you to drive impact across multiple functional areas and strategic initiatives.

Rapid7’s Platform Engineering team is responsible for delivering foundational services that power all of Rapid7’s security products on our cloud-based Insight Platform. Our microservice architecture, built on top of cloud technologies including AWS and Kuberenetes, is designed to deliver a secure, reliable and resilient platform for both our customers to use and developers to build upon. We are focused on developing powerful experiences that enable our customers to move seamlessly between our portfolio of solutions to secure their environments with ease.

The Role

In this role, you’ll contribute to a variety of projects and capabilities across our Insight Platform. You will collaborate with product managers, UX teams and fellow engineers to design and build new customer features, shared components, integrations and back-office functionality. This is primarily a backend role, but we welcome someone with full stack experience.

In this role, you will:

  • Design, implement and maintain cloud based services using Java, Spring, Python and AWS based technologies

  • Prototype and develop new and emerging ideas, solving problems that haven't been solved before

  • Participate in all parts of the development lifecycle from design to coding to deployment to maintenance and operations

  • Kickstart new ideas, build proof of concepts and jumpstart newly funded projects

  • Embed with other engineering teams on challenging initiatives and time sensitive projects

Our team:

  • We focus on cross-functional team collaboration where engineers, product managers, and designers all work together to solve customer problems and build exciting features.

  • We love new ideas and are eager to see what your experiences can bring to help influence our technical and product vision.

  • Team members may be located throughout our North America, Belfast and Dublin locations

  • Our stack includes Java, Spring, React, Python and AWS services maintained via Terraform. While past experience in our stack helps, the team enjoys new engineers looking to learn outside their comfort zone as well as those eager to mentor future team members.

Qualifications and traits:

  • A demonstrable passion for the craft of software development, including current or recent Java, Python, React or similar experience

  • Knowledge of microservice architectures built on top of public cloud computing such as AWS

  • Flexible attitude and willingness to frequently move between different teams, software architectures and priorities

  • Sound development practices in a rapidly-shipping, Agile team (writing and maintaining clean, readable and testable code)

  • A willingness to learn and grow your coding skill set and career!

  • BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience

Rapid7 (Nasdaq: RPD) is advancing security with visibility, analytics, and automation delivered through our Insight cloud. 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. Over 9,300 customers rely on Rapid7 technology, services, and research to improve security outcomes and securely advance their organization.
