Senior Design Manager

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 hour of valuable company-building time, spending hours aggregating data instead of working on making their software better.

Vanta has lowered the barrier for companies to become secure and compliant, especially SMBs. Our challenge is to enable B2B companies to remain continuously secure and compliant with an ever decreasing amount of effort. That means helping our customers understand what good security looks like for them, helping them become secure as their business and products change, and helping them prove their compliance and security so that they can grow their business.

As the design lead, you’ll help lead strategy and give guidance to direct the future of our product, all while hiring, growing, and inspiring an amazing team of product designers and (eventually) user researchers, and writers.

The role

You will...

  • Think deeply about compliance and security by immersing yourself in Vanta’s strategy, and guide your team to understand our biggest opportunities
  • Live and breath our customers, who are both security experts and neophytes and understand their biggest needs and challenges
  • Oversee the design of high-quality products and create a sense of ownership on your team
  • Recruit, interview and hire new members to your team
  • Establish trust and build confidence with cross-functional partners and leadership across Vanta
  • Nurture the team's culture and norms, evolving them as our company grows and provide leadership and mentorship to them

You might...

  • Have 4+ years of experience managing and growing design teams
  • Have experience leading and collaborating with diverse teams in a dynamic, rapid growth environment
  • You have a track record of building highly functional and capable teams
  • Be a strategic thinker who has experience working at different altitudes, across the entire customer journey
  • Have experience working on B2B SaaS products

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
