Location: Boston, MA

Team: Information Security


Were looking to add a Senior Program Manager to our Information Security team.

In this role, youll leverage your robust "tool box" of program management knowledge and strategies to build repeatable processes, ensure accountability across InfoSec and partner teams, and show us how to measure success.

You have experience navigating new environments, so you will be able to assess and improve our existing program independently. You have leadership skills, and will be capable of building out a program/project management team within InfoSec as we scale.

Day In The Life:

You meet with the owners of the vulnerability management program to guide them through the process of identifying new KPIs. The program owners struggle at first, but you ask the right questions help them figure out which metrics will make it possible to identify the health of that program at a glance and make quick, smart decisions about the programs direction. You make a plan to automate the process of pulling these KPIs on a regular basis.

Next, you meet with the information security leadership team to ensure the next quarters roadmap is up-to-date. You notice that some of the projects theyve prioritized dont align with the biggest security risks on the risk register, so you lead them through updating the roadmap accordingly.

After lunch, you head down to the 4th floor barista bar for a quick sync-up with a Program Manager from another team. You swap strategies and leave with some new ideas to implement.

You spend the afternoon building a quarterly review deck. You built the template, and it provides information in a way that is concise, clear, and actionable. You ensure project and program owners have provided the appropriate updates, and you synthesize their input into a thoughtful overview of the programs current state.

You leave the office early. You were really in the zone earlier that week and worked a little late finishing up a project. Youre delivering great work, and in return, your team gives you a ton of flexibility.

Employee Testimonials

James Green

"My favorite memory of being a 'Moose' is our first ever company-wide hackathon in Cambridge. After a fun–filled week for the company kick-off, we still managed to deliver, through the night, on some amazing ideas."

Brett Garofalo
Manager, Mid-Market Sales

"I am not a natural–born salesperson or leader. Rapid7 gave me the mentorship opportunities and leeway to develop those skillsets. Having the support of my management allowed me to take risks and learn from mistakes instead of being tentative and afraid to put myself out there."

"It's pretty cool to look around the room and know that I played a part in making all of that happen, and that I hopefully helped those people move into a role that they find really rewarding and exciting. Especially in a company where they in turn can have a big impact and take their careers to the next level. The fact that they are all good people, and that we all manage to have a bit of fun in the process, helps too."

"I feel that [our core value for] continuous learning best represents me because it's been essential to my career here. There are no shortage of tools and techniques that can be applied to the projects I work on, and despite what I think I might know about the problem at hand, more often than not there are new and novel ways to approach it."
