Meet the Team!

March 25, 2022

Meet Eloise! 👋

I’m Eloise, I work as a Software Engineer on our Employee Security team. I’ve been at Vanta since July 2021!

Tell us about your role at Vanta

My team, Employee Security, is focused on helping our customers keep their employees secure and compliant. We think a lot about how to build a product that can scale well with our customers as they grow and develop more mature security practices. I work closely with product and other software engineers to design, build out, and support these solutions.

What made you realize this was the right career field for you?

I never really considered software engineering until college. I found computer science interesting, but it was always the more team-based classes that I enjoyed most. After seeing some friends intern in software engineering, I realized how much more collaborative the role is than what I expected. There’s also so many different types of problems you get to solve as a software engineer and I realized I loved working in that type of environment.

Why did you decide to choose Vanta over other companies?

Vanta stood out to me from the beginning as a company that is growing quickly in an exciting and important field. But the thing that really sold me on Vanta and made the decision easy was the people. Everyone I met through the interview process seemed motivated, down-to-earth, and kind. It felt like a workplace with a strong sense of community. Now that I’ve joined, I feel very lucky to work on such a collaborative and supportive team. A team that I constantly learn from.

Why are you excited about Vanta’s mission?

In my previous role, I was on a team responsible for ensuring the company was compliant with new privacy laws. It was an immense amount of work and I learned a lot about the complexity of proving security and privacy. Something that excited me about Vanta was the opportunity to help smaller companies move faster along this learning curve. Instead of treating security as an expensive afterthought, we enable our customers to implement better practices upfront and grow those practices overtime.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

My little sister moved to Alaska! I really want to visit her in the winter so I can see the northern lights. That’s been a dream to be able to see them.

“Vanta's expert team helped analyze our compliance requirements and shared what was needed to complete a SAQ-D. Because of this, we accelerated our timelines, saved hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in costs.”
