San Francisco, California

Software Engineer

We're looking for experienced software engineers who want to take ownership and drive development of large product areas. Joining Vanta means seeing all parts of the business, helping to build the team, shaping Vanta's culture from the earliest stages, and building core parts of our infrastructure as we grow and scale.

No security experience is required, just a passion for our mission of making data safe on the internet.

The role

You will...

  • Work full-stack on our backend (Typescript/express/Mongo/Node) and frontend (Typescript/React/Apollo) code to build new product areas
  • Interact closely with our customers and customer-facing teammates to build and ship meaningful products
  • Help define Vanta's engineering culture as we grow
  • Own major parts of our product and infrastructure

You might...

  • Have at least 3 years of professional work experience as a software engineer and an aptitude for technology
  • Be interested in doing more than simply writing code, with a desire to contribute to the business as a whole
  • Have strong communication skills in addition to your coding ability
  • Be aligned in values of ownership, diversity of thought, and empathy for our users and your coworkers


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
