At Vanta, our mission is to secure the internet and protect consumer data. We believe that security should be monitored and verified continuously, and we empower companies to practice better security and prove it with ease. Vanta has a kind and talented team, and while some have prior security experience, many have been successful at Vanta without it.
As a Security Analyst at Vanta, you will be responsible for helping us demonstrate how we protect customer data and Vanta—and continue to earn the trust of our customers. You’ll help manage responses to vendor security questionnaires, and partner on vendor security reviews. You’ll review security alerts and escalations from different teams, tools, and platforms, and you’ll respond and work to fine-tune these over time. You will dive deep into the security and compliance domains to help improve existing and launch new security and compliance processes, programs, and policies where needed. Lastly, you’ll help ensure Vanta’ns have the information they need by partnering to respond to internal security-related questions and requests.
You’ll join Vanta’s Security organization, which provides essential security operational services, is directly involved in the software development process, sets policies and standards regarding enterprise-wide security requirements, and offers advisory services to enable our business to thrive while effectively managing risk. If you’re someone who has high initiative and enjoys problem solving while having impact at a high-growth company, we would love to hear from you!

We started in 2018, in the wake of several high-profile data breaches. Online security was only becoming more important, but we knew firsthand how hard it could be for fast-growing companies to invest the time and manpower it takes to build a solid security foundation. Vanta was inspired by a vision to restore trust in internet businesses by enabling companies to improve and prove their security.From our early days automating security monitoring for compliance standards like SOC 2, HIPAA and ISO 27001 to creating the world's leading Trust Management Platform, our vision remains unchanged.
Now more than ever, making security continuous—not just a point-in-time check— is essential. Thousands of companies rely on Vanta to build, maintain and demonstrate their trust— all in a way that's real-time and transparent.
