Strategic Finance Associate

Vanta is on a mission to secure the internet and protect consumer data. We do this today by automating security and compliance for hundreds of companies. Backed by Sequoia, Vanta has rapidly expanded in the past couple of years, growing ARR more than 3x last year and expecting to more than double again this year.

We’re looking for our first strategic finance here at Vanta. This individual will own our financial model, go to market strategy, and pricing for the business, alongside other strategic priorities as Vanta grows.

The role

You will...

  • Build and own the budget, operating model, and long-term financial plan for Vanta
  • Perform analysis to support strategic decision-making around resource allocation and prioritization; identify areas for growth and improvement
  • Work with cross-functional leaders to influence strategic projects including pricing, unit economics, customer segmentation, and sales compensation
  • Build business cases for areas Vanta should invest resources effectively
  • Drive alignment on KPIs and key metrics to track team-specific and company-wide trends, go-to-market initiatives, business performance, and provide visibility into operating performance
  • Prepare presentations and analysis for our Board of Directors and Executive Team

You might...

  • Have 3+ years of experience including Investment Banking and experience working at a fast-paced start-up (ideally SaaS) in Strategic Finance or FP&A
  • Have strong proficiency with financial modeling and Excel; work with SQL a plus
  • Be highly analytical with the ability to translate between strategic business decisions and their quantitative implications
  • Have excellent communication skills with the ability to distill complex issues into structured frameworks and concrete action plans
  • Be highly entrepreneurial and comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with minimal guidance


We offer competitive benefits, as you may expect:

Industry-competitive salary and equity
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
