Solutions Engineer

RapidFort is a seed-stage, Tier 1, venture-funded start-up with an industry-leading product in the cloud-workload security and optimization space. Our product profiles a software container and auto-removes vulnerabilities and unused code at the click of a button. What used to take months now takes minutes. We improve security, decrease software supply chain and zero-day exploit risk, and free developers to build awesome software fast! Less Code. Less Problems.

The product boasts a growing list of blue-chip enterprise customers. Our technically focused team now needs the support of a full-stack solutions engineer.

This is an opportunity to do something revolutionary, to make a big impact on a small team, to deliver results, take ownership, and have fun. It’s way better than those boring big-corporate red-tape meetings-all-the-time-sucks-the-life-out-of-you jobs, and there is a significant financial upside.
