  • Can work independently and with teams to identify and resolve opportunities and issues

  • Can communicate complex ISO 27001 concepts to internal teams and customers
  • Prefer security-related certifications such as CISSP, CISA, CISM, AWS Security, PCI PCIP/QSA/ISA, and ISO 27001 Lead Auditor/Implementer (or ability to obtain in 30 days)
What you can expect as a Vantan:
  • Industry-Competitive Salary and Equity
  • 100% covered Medical, Dental, and Vision Benefits with Dependents Coverage
  • 16 Weeks Fully Paid Parental Leave for All New Parents (Moms, Dads, Adoptive, Foster)

About Vanta
We started Vanta in 2016 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.
