Hopefully those lessons are helpful for you as you think about your own careers page, which, frankly, is the nerve center of your recruiting efforts. For most candidates, all roads eventually lead to your careers page.

So, for our very first Teardown we looked at Rapid7, a high-growth information security company based in Boston.
