Product Lead

San Francisco, California

Our first Product Lead will be responsible for establishing a world-class product function at a hypergrowth, profitable start-up with product-market fit that is scaling quickly.

Vanta provides a security monitoring product trusted by hundreds of companies. We’ve grown 10x in the last year, largely by word-of-mouth, and we need to scale our product and team to keep up. In this role, you’ll refine and drive execution of Vanta’s product strategy, build and iterate on our product processes, and empathetically lead and grow our Product Management team.

Vanta (today) has one key product, with a clear value-prop and 500+ customers. We envision that Vanta (next year) will have a suite of products and expanded features, with several use cases, thousands of customers, and (probably) more competitors. This is an exciting, mission-critical opportunity at a significant inflection point for our company. If this sounds like the "right kind of challenge", we'd love to hear from you!


About Us

To learn more about us and our culture, take a look at our KeyValues page.

We started Vanta in 2017 as Equifax had lost every American’s social security number, Home Depot had leaked its customers’ credit card numbers to hackers, and Facebook admitted that it irresponsibly sent user data to third parties who tried to influence the US election.

It was clear that security and privacy had become mainstream issues, and that we all increasingly relied on cloud services to store everything from our personal photos to our communications at work.

Vanta’s mission is to be the layer of trust on top of these services, and to secure the internet, increase trust in software companies, and keep consumer data safe.

We do this by building an automated head of security for technology companies, and we use that system to both help a company secure itself and to prove their security to others.

If we succeed in our mission, it should feel irresponsible for users to put data into a product that isn’t certified by Vanta, and irresponsible for companies to collect data without using Vanta to secure and monitor themselves.

Vanta’s mission is to be the layer of trust on top of these services, and to secure the internet, increase trust in software companies, and keep consumer data safe.
