About Vanta

Vanta is security-in-a-box for technology companies, covering everything from laptops to infrastructure, and using a suite of simple, effective, and easy-to-deploy tools.

Our organization is very small. We’re good friends and enjoy spending time together. We like others who are excited about making and carrying out their decisions, whether in the code they write or the partnerships they strike.

Here’s a sample of what we look for:

  • You enjoy figuring out what to work on and teaching yourself whatever you need in order to get things done
  • You enjoy working with a team, and you're also happy working on your own

About the role

Vanta

Vanta is security-in-a-box for technology companies, covering everything from laptops to infrastructure, and using a suite of simple, effective, and easy-to-deploy tools.

We're looking for experienced software engineers who want to take ownership and drive development of large product areas. Joining Vanta means seeing all parts of the business, helping to build the team, shaping Vanta's culture from the earliest stages, and building core parts of our infrastructure as we grow and scale. No security experience is required, just a passion for our mission of making data safe on the internet.

You will:

  • Build on our Typescript/React/Apollo stack, which uses typing extensively to enforce safe coding
  • Work closely with our customers and customer-facing roles
  • Help define Vanta's engineering culture as we grow
  • Own major parts of our product and infrastructure

You have:

  • An interest in doing more than simply writing code, with a desire to contribute to the business as a whole
  • Strong communication skills in addition to your coding ability
  • Aligned values of ownership, diversity of thought, and empathy for our users and your coworkers

If you’re interested in starting a startup eventually, you'll get to see a startup get built from the ground up at Vanta.

Our values

Our values are still forming, but we know we value:

  • User empathy – today, we’re on a first-name basis with all of our users; while that won’t always be feasible, we will always be absurdly close to our users.
  • End-to-end ownership – we like to work with folks who are excited about making and carrying out their decisions. (Someday, Vanta will need strict handoffs between teams, but we don't need or have those things today.)
  • Team support – we believe software engineering is a team sport, and we’re looking for people who are kind to their teammates, whether in the code they write or words they speak.
