Account Executive

Vanta is growing quickly, we're profitable, and we're continually outpacing our growth targets while maintaining very strong NPS scores. We're on track to double our revenue this year, after growing our business by 10x in the past year. Needless to say, it's an exciting time! We're scaling our Sales team with customer-focused Account Executives who will take ownership of their entire sales cycle, help to build our sales motion as we move up market, and distinguish Vanta as best-in-class to prospects in a burgeoning competitive landscape.

If this sounds like you, and you're excited to join a growing sales team, we'd love to hear from you.

The role

You will...

  • Identify high-potential business and verticals and develop and execute outbound strategies to bring them to Vanta
  • Turn our inbound demand into closed-new business and happy Vanta customers
  • Manage our sales pipeline, improving and systematizing our nascent sales process and playbook
  • Define and communicate the specific benefits of Vanta appropriate for each customer, including making sales materials and demos
  • Collect insights from customers and potential customers for our product development process
  • Own opportunities from start-to-finish, as we don't have sales or business development reps yet

You might...

  • Have held a closing and quota-carrying role in the past, while consistently exceeding monthly and quarterly sales targets
  • Be experienced in B2B SaaS, preferably in SMB and Mid-Market
  • Be highly empathetic to customers, with a proven track record of long-term customer retention
  • Possess the technical competency to understand Vanta’s software and build great relationships with highly technical customers
  • Have stellar problem solving chops, and an enthusiasm for making a large impact early on at a start-up

Benefits

We offer competitive benefits, as you may expect:

Industry-competitive salary and equity
Medical (mental and physical health), dental, and vision benefits
Paid parental leave for all parents
401(k) plan
Flexible work hours and location
Ergonomically-friendly workspace equipment
Open paid-time-off policy and 10 company holidays
Generous monthly stipend for commute to our SF office
Health and wellness focused company activities

Beyond these table stakes, our greatest benefit may be the opportunity to build a fundamental internet infrastructure: how a business becomes trustworthy and then proves its reliability.

About us

We started by building the simplest way for a company to prepare for a SOC 2 assessment.

We started with SOC 2 because it was the most common way for an internet business to prove its security. In the course of building for SOC 2, we built out a suite of security tools that every internet business needs: laptop management, account monitoring, employee onboarding and offboarding, cloud infrastructure configuration, policy documentation, and more.

Over time, we’ll add additional certifications (HIPAA, ISO27001) and partner with industry experts to bolster the ways a business’ security is proved. We’re just getting started.

Our goal is to demystify internet security to the average person, equipping beginners with sane defaults and growing them into security-savvy principals who can explain how their company protects customer data and why their business is worthy of your trust.

Vanta’s mission is to secure the internet and protect consumer data
