Vanta Careers: Reasons to Apply
1. Diversity of team, really:
We’re proud to be lead by our CEO and founder, Christina, for many reasons. Namely, she’s a champion of diversity, which shows in the representation across our team. We’re committed to building a team of people diverse in experience, race, gender-identification, sexual orientation, ability, and skills – and ensuring Vanta is an inclusive and supportive environment, too. While the work is never done, we’re proud of our progress so far: our team is > 50% women and non-binary folx and > 40% POC.
2. Early stage, but not for long:
We’re growing quickly and sustainably across our revenue goals, customers, and team of Vanta’ns. In our first year as a company, we became profitable, grew our business by 10x, and expanded our customer base from dozens to hundreds – meaning there are now thousands of individual Vanta users. We’ve held off on raising beyond our seed round simply because we can, and we’re proud to have grown by our own means so far. And while we started the year with 15 team members, we’ll head into 2021 with close to 75 Vanta’ns – that could include you!
3. Exciting news for technical and go-to-market teams:
In our early days, we found clear product-market fit with growing technology companies. This makes our Sales and Marketing teams happy – they’re selling and marketing a product that’s a “must-have” for our customers with a clear value-proposition. Until very recently, we’ve had minimal competition and we remain the market leader in SOC-2 compliance software.
This clear product-market fit stems from a strong product, which is highly technical and fairly complex. This makes our Engineering and Product org happy as well – interesting technical challenges abound across our infrastructure, desktop application and agent, and our frontend web architecture.
4. A mission that resonates with many:
Don’t consider yourself a security-nut or a compliance-enthusiast? That’s fine, really. Our mission is to secure the internet and protect consumer data – and we’re certain that resonates with you as a human in 2020. What that mission means today: we built a suite of simple, effective, and easy-to-deploy tools for growing technology companies to help them achieve their security and compliance goals. By doing this, we’re helping companies:
Establish a strong and secure foundation from their early days
Build trust with (and expand) their customer base
Accelerate their growth and ability to move up-market (through meeting compliance standards that would otherwise block them)
Really, we help our customers with commonly held problems that previously haven’t had a great solution. This allows them to better help their customers, too!
5. Values-oriented company culture:
Regardless of the team you join, at Vanta, you can expect to care deeply about how your work impacts our customers and Vanta’s growth and strength as a business. We have a shared sense of ownership and empathy, which fuels our collaborative and transparent work culture. You’ll work with teammates outside of your own team, and have the chance to join in on (virtual) events such as lunch ‘n’ learns, Founder Q&A, trivia and game nights, fitness challenges, book clubs, and happy hours (for whatever your definition of “happy” is).
