Engineering Manager

Vanta provides a security solution at scale for hundreds of companies that trust us with their most important data. We integrate deeply with our customers’ SaaS providers, infrastructure, and employee laptops to analyze the relationships with that data and surface potential security threats in real time. As an Engineering Manager, you’ll be responsible for leading your team to deliver results in a consistent, sustainable way, for growing and developing your team, and for scaling our engineering organization to meet Vanta’s accelerating business needs.

Joining Vanta today as an engineering manager offers the unique opportunity to play an integral role in laying the foundation for our engineering organization as we continue to scale, seeing all parts of our business and shaping Vanta's culture from the earliest stages.

No security experience is required, just a passion for our mission to secure the internet and protect consumer data!

The role

You will...

  • Drive significant impact by leading your team to deliver results predictably and at a high level of quality
  • Set direction and guide technical strategy, ensuring that your team is delivering long-term value aligned with Vanta’s business priorities
  • Manage and mentor a growing team of high-performing engineers
  • Grow Vanta’s team by hiring a diverse set of talented, intellectually curious engineers
  • Partner with key stakeholders to design an inclusive engineering organization, representing Vanta’s culture and values
  • Work closely with Vanta’s customers and customer-facing teammates to build and ship meaningful products and infrastructure
  • Play an integral role in laying the foundation for Vanta’s engineering culture

You might...

  • Have four or more years of professional experience as a full-time engineering manager, and have worked as a Software Engineer previously in your career
  • Have experience managing teams through times of high-growth, acting as a trusted leader and confident mentor
  • Have been deeply involved in designing recruiting processes in a previous role, with a demonstrated ability to hire and recruit for your teams
  • Have prior experience managing complex, long-term projects that touch multiple teams and cross-functional stakeholders


We offer competitive benefits, as you may expect:

Industry-competitive salary and equity
Medical (mental and physical health), dental, and vision benefits

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

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
