About the role

Our Senior Software Engineers lead and mentor engineers, delivering high-value products for our customers and infrastructure that enables our business to scale.

Vanta’s mission is to secure the internet and protect consumer data. We believe that security should be monitored and verified continuously, and we empower companies to practice better security and prove it with ease. Our product integrates deeply with the services that present security risk to a company, pulls and analyzes data from those sources, and surfaces potential security threats to our customers in real time with guidance to remediate them.

Vanta’s team and technology surface are growing quickly, and it’s essential that we invest in the right abstractions and systems to enable us to scale with our business. As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll be responsible for setting technical direction to enable our product and infrastructure to scale with our business, driving complex projects across our technical stack, and mentoring our talented engineering team. Your past experience will be leveraged to enable and accelerate Vanta’s growth.

Our business has found incredible product-market fit and has monetized effectively since the day we signed our first customer. We’re growing at a blistering pace, which presents career-defining opportunities for engineers to accelerate their growth and to contribute to a rapidly-scaling company.

Vanta has a kind and talented team, and while some have prior security experience, many have been successful at Vanta without it. We’d love for you to join us!

What you’ll do as a Senior Software Engineer at Vanta:

  • Lead complex projects with multiple stakeholders and engineers to deliver significant impact to our business
  • Set direction for critical technical surface areas, enabling us to stay ahead of continued rapid growth
  • Design, develop, and own new product functionality and/or infrastructure leveraging modern frameworks and tooling (TypeScript, React, Node.js, Golang)
  • Work with talented and kind engineers to make a significant impact on our customer base, enabling them to improve their security and prove it
  • Contribute to building Vanta’s engineering culture as we grow

How to be successful in this role:

  • Have at least 5 years of industry experience
  • Have played technical leadership roles for teams or complex projects
  • Have previous startup experience, or worked in an environment that prioritizes a bias for action
  • Have previous experience working on greenfield projects
  • Have an interest in learning about security or prior experience in the space

What you can expect as a Vantan:

  • Industry-Competitive Salary and Equity
  • 100% covered Medical, Dental, and Vision Benefits with Dependents Coverage
  • 16 Weeks Fully Paid Parental Leave for All New Parents (Moms, Dads, Adoptive, Foster)
  • Health & Wellness Stipend
  • Remote Workspace Stipend
  • 401(k) Matching Plan
  • Flexible Work Hours and Location
  • Open & Encouraged PTO Policy
  • 9 Company Paid Holidays
  • Free Memberships to Online Wellness Platforms (One Medical, Ginger, Headspace, and more!) Virtual Team Building Activities, Lunch and Learns, and other Company-Wide Events Offices in SF and NYC with Hubs of Vantans forming across the US, including but not limited to, Seattle, Austin, Indianapolis, LA, Boston, and more!

About Vanta:

We started Vanta in 2016 as Equifax had lost every American's social security number, Home Depot had leaked its customers' credit card numbers to hackers, and Facebook admitted that it irresponsibly sent user data to third parties who tried to influence the US election. It was clear that security and privacy had become mainstream issues, and that we all increasingly relied on cloud services to store everything from our personal photos to our communications at work.

Vanta's mission is to be the layer of trust on top of these services, and to secure the internet, increase trust in software companies, and keep consumer data safe.

We do this by building an automated head of security for technology companies, and we use that system to both help a company secure itself and to prove their security to others.

If we succeed in our mission, it should feel irresponsible for users to put data into a product that isn't certified by Vanta, and irresponsible for companies to collect data without using Vanta to secure and monitor themselves.

At Vanta, we are committed to hiring diverse talent of different backgrounds and as such, it is important to us to provide an inclusive work environment for all. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender identity, age, religion, sexual orientation, veteran or disability status, or any other protected class. As an equal opportunity employer, we encourage and welcome people of all backgrounds to apply.
