We are thrilled to share some exciting news from our data engineering team at Rapid7. Earlier this month, our very own data engineers had the honor of being panelists at the technology panel organized by Summer Search, a fantastic organization that our CEO, Corey Thomas, is on the Leadership Council for.

The event, known as the Summer Search Career Fest, aimed to empower and support 100-150 high school and college students from low-income backgrounds. It provided them with invaluable opportunities such as professional mentoring, summer experiences, and post-secondary support. Our team was elated to contribute to this inspiring initiative and connect with these talented young minds.

As panelists, we had the privilege of sharing our experiences, insights, and expertise in the field of data engineering. We discussed various topics related to technology, career paths, and the impact of data-driven decision-making. Our goal was to inspire these aspiring individuals and showcase the incredible possibilities that lie within the tech industry.

Being able to guide and mentor young talent aligns perfectly with our company values and our commitment to fostering growth within the community. We firmly believe that by investing in the next generation of professionals, we can collectively shape a brighter future.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Summer Search for organizing this remarkable event and for providing us with the opportunity to contribute. We would also like to extend our appreciation to Corey Thomas for his involvement in the Leadership Council, which made our participation possible.

We encourage all of you to join us in celebrating this achievement and the positive impact we are making together. Stay tuned for future updates on our community engagement initiatives and ways you can get involved.

Once again, thank you to everyone involved in making this event a success, and we look forward to continuing to make a difference in the lives of young talent within our community.
