San Francisco, California

Senior Software Engineer

Our Senior Software Engineers lead and mentor engineers, delivering high-impact product and infrastructure projects at a hypergrowth company that has found product-market fit and is scaling quickly.

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 a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll be responsible for setting technical direction to enable our product and infrastructure to scale with our business, driving complex projects across our technical stack, and mentoring our talented engineering team.

Today, joining Vanta as an engineer means seeing all parts of the business, growing and developing our team, shaping Vanta's culture from the earliest stages, and building core parts of our product and infrastructure that enable us to continue to grow and scale.

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

The role

You will...

  • Design, develop, and own new product functionality and/or infrastructure leveraging modern frameworks and tooling (TypeScript, React, Node.js, Golang)
  • Mentor and elevate other engineers on the team
  • Lead multi-engineer projects, delivering significant impact to our product and/or infrastructure
  • Set direction for important technical surface areas
  • Interact closely with our customers and customer-facing teammates to build and ship meaningful products
  • Play a part in defining Vanta's engineering culture as we grow

You might...

  • Have at least 5 years of professional work experience as a software engineer and an aptitude for technology
  • Have previously mentored engineers, such as either a new-hire buddy, intern or full-time teammate mentor, or technical lead
  • Have prior experience with technologies we use, though this isn’t a requirement!
  • Be interested in contributing to a growing company beyond your day-to-day responsibilities

Benefits

We offer competitive benefits, as you may expect:

Industry-competitive salary and equity, as well as transparent compensation practices
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
