For this installment of 7 Rapid Questions, we sat down with Soumi Mukherjee, APAC Sales Manager - ANZ North Sales, to learn more about what drives her in her role at Rapid7.

1. Why did you join Rapid7?

The truth is I joined for the people. I worked for a Rapid7 channel partner prior, and my interaction with the Rapid7 team back then gave me an impression of a company built on a culture of respect, trust, and high standards. I wanted to be a part of it!

2. Describe what your teams do in a few words?

We help customers achieve their cybersecurity goals by connecting them to the right products and solutions.

3. What can a candidate do to stand out in the interview process?

Be authentic, and bring your real self! If you’re asked to do a presentation round and you do your best pitch by whiteboarding and not slides, do what is best for you!

4. Which of our core values do you embody the most?

I am an obsessive learner, and I feel the spirit of "Never Done" speaks to me naturally. The cybersecurity landscape is constantly changing, so it’s important to continue learning and anticipating what’s next.

5. What is it that makes cybersecurity such an exciting field?

No boring day, in a nutshell! The evolving threat landscape means, to stay relevant, we have to keep innovating and improving. This aspect keeps me excited.

6. What three words would you use to describe the culture at Rapid7?

Accountability, collaboration, empathy.

7. What’s the best team activity you’ve done?

I miss the in-person team events and can’t wait to get back to them when we can. One of my favorites was a barista course. Our team even competed to see who could make the best latte art! It was an amazing event, and I even have a certificate!
