Rapid7 receives 2016 Tech Culture Award for dedication to core values, innovation, and scaling with soul
BOSTON, Aug. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ:RPD), a leading provider of security data and analytics solutions, announced today that TMCnet, the leading website in building communities online, in person and in print for communications and technology markets, has named the company a recipient of the first annual 2016 Tech Culture Awards. Rapid7 has quadrupled in size over the past three years and has focused on “scaling with soul” in order to stay true to its core values, maintaining itself as an agile, innovative organization.
Rapid7 “Moose,” as its people are referred to both individually and collectively, have created the company’s Moose Manifesto. Written completely by Rapid7 team members, the manifesto explains the Company’s mission, purpose, and unique qualities. The Moose Manifesto crystalizes the attributes that Rapid7 hires for and articulates the core values that drive and guide the company.
“We have built a team with a shared purpose and commitment to one another and our customers. We strongly believe this is the key to our continued growth and success,” said Corey Thomas, president and CEO of Rapid7. “Our Moose have demonstrated that innovation at scale is possible when it is based on a culture of teamwork, continuous learning, and disciplined risk taking. I’m honored that Rapid7 has been selected by TMCnet for this award and am proud to call myself a Rapid7 Moose.”
Rapid7 has five core values: (1) meaningful customer partnerships; (2) continuous learning; (3) disciplined risk taking; (4) individual excellence; and (5) teamwork. The company has found that these values, working in unison, foster a fulfilling experience for Rapid7 employees and enable the company to positively impact the greater cybersecurity community.
In addition to its core values, Rapid7 has built a “stabilization engine” and an “innovation engine,” a structure that allows the business to continue in a stable and predictable way, while encouraging employees to venture into more experimental areas. This approach applies to incubating new product ideas or piloting new systems for customer interactions.
“The mission of these Tech Culture Awards is quite simple. We have surveyed and selected companies who are looking for the best and brightest tech talent and are willing to go the extra mile to provide what they believe is the ideal tech culture”, said Rich Tehrani, TMC’s CEO and Group Editor-in-Chief for TMCnet.
“Rapid7 has demonstrated to the editors of TMCnet that they are committed to growth through providing a truly distinct and upbeat environment and for that we applaud and recognize them,” added Tehrani.
The complete list of Tech Culture Award winners for 2016 are now posted on the Tech Culture blog on TMCnet. Winners will also be featured on TMCnet.
