Role Description

We're looking for an experienced software engineer who can take ownership and drive development of large product areas. You'll work closely with the product and founding team, help build our engineering culture, and work on complex technical systems to power the product.

About Vanta

The Vanta product is security in a box for technology companies, a suite of interconnected tools that currently runs the security of companies as small as 2 employees and as large as 350, including many that you've heard of. As a team, we spend a lot of time talking to our users, understanding their workflows, and building tools that help them run their business.

An example of a recent project was to add a feature to our laptop and server agents (written in Go) to hash public SSH keys on laptops and servers, and use that information to determine which employees had access to which machines. That data then needed to be gathered, displayed, and organized for our users on our NodeJS/React/GraphQL website — not in a giant, unwieldy table, but in a holistic tool that was built with an understanding of what actual tasks our customers were trying to accomplish with that information.

Our tools can take a company with no security infrastructure and bring it all the way up to the level of SOC2 or PCI compliance, which means that our users can buy Vanta to unblock sales in their pipeline stuck in security review.

Our customers love us: we were one of the fastest growing companies in our YCombinator batch, we have zero voluntary churn, and our NPS numbers are off the chart.

Company Culture

Here's a great writeup of our culture: https://www.keyvalues.com/vanta

User empathy: we derive our product confidence from having a very close connection to our users. We can make strong product decisions quickly because we can talk through how each archetype of customer would react, and we believe that's why our NPS score is so high.

End-to-end ownership: while we have enough work for engineers who want to code and be left alone, we prefer folks interested in working outside of their role. Whether that's culture, recruiting, engineering tools, fundraising, product, or anything else, engineers contribute to all parts of the business, and we encourage engineers to help out on their passion projects.

Diversity: we believe that strong teams are formed by different perspectives coming together, and we've been committed to building a diverse team from the start.
