San Francisco, California

Engineering Manager

Vanta is growing quickly, we're profitable, and we're quickly outpacing our aggressive revenue targets while maintaining very strong NPS scores. To help us scale and keep up with our customer and product demands, we're hiring our first engineering manager in San Francisco.

In this critical role, you'll take on the leadership of our engineering team, help develop our engineering culture and values, and define (and launch) our strategy and process for hiring engineers.

If you began your career technically and now find yourself thriving when leading a team, we'd love to hear from you!

The role

You will...

  • Manage and mentor our growing team of high-performing engineers, empowering them to effectively navigate through challenges and contribute to world-class engineering at Vanta.
  • Continue building our team by hiring talented, diverse, and intellectually curious engineers, and designing an inclusive organization representing our culture and values.
  • Take ownership of the technical processes and ecosystems needed for engineering projects to run smoothly, successfully, and at scale.
  • Advocate for our engineering team to ensure alignment between engineering and business priorities.

You might...

  • Managed an engineering team before, ideally through times of high-growth, and are both a trusted leader and confident mentor.
  • A successful track record of hiring and recruiting for your teams, and can help design a well-crafted engineering recruiting process, with diversity, inclusion, and long-term growth in mind.
  • Experience leading technically complex, cross-functional engineering projects

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
