Defend the digital world and design the future of security at Rapid7!

With the explosive growth of cloud computing comes complex, dynamic and growing security risks. We need to provide simple, yet powerful solutions to help our customers defend their digital environments. Are you up for the challenge?

The Opportunity and Essential Responsibilities

The Cloud Security practice team is looking for a passionate Senior UX Designer to create thoughtful end-to-end experiences that drive customer outcomes and help our users achieve their cybersecurity goals.

In this role, you'll partner with your practice counterparts to:

  • Explore and craft design solutions for our customers' most complex cloud security  problems.

  • Help drive the evolution of our solutions, and influence the future of the Cloud Security practice to help our customers advance their maturity and make better decisions.

  • Drive meaningful outcomes that contribute to real customer success and company goals.

A Snapshot of the Work You'll Be Doing

As a Senior UX Designer, your major areas of focus will be to:

  • Work within a customer-centric, outcomes-focused cloud security practice and build deep understanding of the modern security professionals and their challenges, including multi-cloud security, cloud configuration compliance, identity & access management security, workload protection, runtime vulnerabilities, and more as the cloud evolves!

  • Help lead the Cloud Security practice experiences end-to-end, from problem definition and discovery, exploration, and design through delivery. This involves standard design methods such as discovery research, user interviews, user flows, journey maps, sketches, low to high fidelity mockups, and functional prototypes.

  • Partner across the Cloud Security practice to help proactively influence, manage, plan, and scope UX team projects and practice-wide initiatives. This includes translating strategy, customer needs, research findings, and usability best practices into high quality, customer-centric design solutions that support and reinforce product vision, brand, and customer outcomes.

  • Collaborate across multiple practice and geographically distributed teams to unite designers as a collective, and ensure cohesive experiences within our platform and brand portfolio.

  • Mentor junior members on the team and work with fellow UXers across practices to establish a tight knit culture of growth, learning, and strong UX advocacy.

You'll also work hand-in-hand with:

  • Product Management and Go-To-Customer experts to identify and balance user needs, business goals, technical feasibility, the end-to-end customer experience, and time-to-market to determine the best design solutions that drive customer outcomes.

  • Customer Research to coordinate, manage, and/or run user interviews, user testing, and other research functions to evaluate customer needs, effectiveness of design solutions, and to help drive adoption of the solutions you create.

  • UX Engineering to work within and contribute to our design system, and ensure necessary design elements are available to UX and engineering partners.

  • Software Engineering with direct partnership and collaboration, early technical feasibility discussions, and understanding of design intent as it pertains to user need and solution implementation.

You...

  • Are focused on solutions to customer needs, not just crafting designs. You see the UX process and solutions as a means to deliver value to our customers, and balance the right amount with your partners.

  • Demonstrate a “growth” mindset and value collaboration over ego. You embody the “we” attitude, and “grab a shovel” when needed, regardless of swim lanes or areas of ownership. You believe success happens as a team.

  • Believe deep partnership is the root of success. You naturally build strong partnerships across the organization, and you can create consensus, drive alignment, and influence within your practice team.

  • Are unafraid of ambiguity. You push forward through unclear direction, and help to defnie that direction with your UX, PM, and engineering counterparts.

  • Are a strong and dynamic communicator. You have the ability to tell a story and craft a narrative that compels your audience, drives alignment, and prompts action. 

  • Have a strong sense of accountability. You have excellent time management skills, and hold yourself accountable to commitments.

  • Imbue energy, enthusiasm, and curiosity. You bring yourself every day, and embrace the “never done” mindset.

Additional Details

  • We are looking for a candidate that roughly has 4-6 years of relevant experience; this includes holding previous roles as a product designer, UX designer, visual designer, or equivalent experience. 

  • We don't require cybersecurity or cloud computing experience. It's nice to have, but ultimately we're looking for someone with great UX instincts that can identify patterns and needs across our customer base, and synthesize these complexities into usable and polished design solutions. We know there will be a ramp-up period, and will support your journey into this exciting field! 

  • We help secure the cloud for large businesses that are technically savvy. We want someone with B2B experience, especially with software that is mission critical for a business to be successful and innovative.

  • We need someone that can travel occasionally, both domestically and internationally (of course, once it's safe to do so). Rapid7 has 7 offices with team members present across North America and Europe. You'll work directly with team members in Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Dublin, Ireland.
