Senior Product Designer
Vanta is on a mission to secure the internet and protect consumer data. Before Vanta, companies were stuck in a perpetual cycle of having to make the feature vs compliance and security tradeoff. They had to engage with costly auditors that took hundreds of our of valuable company-building time, spending hours aggregating data instead of working on making their software better.
Our challenge is to enable B2B companies to remain continuously secure and compliant with an ever decreasing amount of effort. That means helping our customers understand what good security looks like, helping them become secure as their business changes, and helping them prove their compliance and security so that they can grow their business. Most importantly, it means designing a product that will change the incentives to make security a no-brainer investment for all companies. You will be responsible for the platform that helps customers build and manage automations that help them stay secure and compliant.

As an equal opportunity employer, we encourage and welcome people of all backgrounds to apply.
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.
