Lead Vulnerability Researcher - Emergent Threat Response (Security Sciences)
The past two years has seen a significant rise in widespread attacks and zero-day vulnerabilities that pose a threat to many organizations. Rapid7's emergent threat response team is a group of vulnerability researchers and cross-functional leaders who work across the company to help customers understand and implement defenses against active and impending security threats. Our researchers analyze CVEs that are being actively exploited in the wild and publish both in-depth and high-level research on vulnerability and exploit trends.
At the same time, we aren't satisfied with a merely reactive approach to security research—we seek to identify, characterize, and contextualize the vulnerabilities and attack vectors that will turn into tomorrow's widespread threats (or next month's, or next year's). We're looking for an experienced researcher to join our team and help define vuln research priorities (and drive execution!) that help defenders get ahead of the attack curve.
