Head of IT

Vanta is on a mission to secure the internet and protect consumer data. Before Vanta, companies were stuck in a perpetual cycle of having to make the feature vs compliance and security tradeoff. They had to engage with costly auditors that took hundreds of hours of valuable company-building time, spending hours aggregating data instead of working on making their software better.

Vanta has found incredible product-market fit and a strong business model. We’re growing quickly and need a strong leader to lay a firm foundation of best practices in IT.

As Vanta’s Head of IT, you’ll be responsible for setting and executing our IT strategy to support a rapidly-scaling hybrid team and for building and developing a world-class team of IT professionals.

The role

You will...

  • Design and lead key IT and security policies, including but not limited to asset management, identity management, access review, and onboarding/offboarding.
  • Lead SaaS vendor procurement - from evaluation through negotiation and review.
  • Own in-office IT strategy and deployment, currently San Francisco and New York City, and develop a robust remote IT strategy and deployment for an increasingly remote workforce.
  • Hire, manage, and develop an IT team to support Vanta’s growing business needs.

You might...

  • Have 5+ years of experience in IT leadership roles, preferably at fast-growing enterprise SaaS companies.
  • Have experience in high-growth environments with quickly-evolving IT needs.


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
