We combine our extensive experience in security data and analytics and deep insight into attacker behaviors and techniques to make sense of the wealth of data available to organizations about their IT environments and users.

Job Overview: 

Rapid7 is looking for a self-starting, action-oriented, and highly motivated Technical Account Manager to join our team.

As a Technical Account Manager (TAM), you will be responsible for managing the technical relationship between Rapid7 and its large enterprise and federal customers. As a trusted advisor, the TAM will manage the technical success of these customers by leveraging their strong technical and product knowledge to guide customers in the successful deployment and use of Rapid7 products within their respective organizations.
