Posted on Tuesday, April 23, 2024

We're scaling our Velocity Sales team with customer-focused Account Executives who will take ownership of their entire sales cycle and distinguish Vanta as best-in-class to prospects in a burgeoning competitive landscape.

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.

Vanta is growing quickly, we're profitable, and we're continually outpacing our growth targets while maintaining very strong NPS scores. Our Sales team is leading the charge in exceeding our revenue goals and growing our market share as the industry leader in compliance and security.

If this sounds like you, and you're excited to join a growing sales team, we'd love to hear from you.

  • Turn our inbound demand into closed-new business and happy Vanta customers.

  • Manage our sales pipeline, improving and maturing our sales process and playbook.

  • Define and communicate the specific benefits of Vanta appropriate for each customer, including making sales materials and demos.

  • Collect insights from prospects for our product development process.

How to be successful in this role:

  • Have had a closing and quota-carrying role 4+ years, while consistently exceeding monthly and quarterly sales targets

  • Be experienced in B2B SaaS, preferably in SMB with a focus on short deal cycles.

  • Be highly empathetic to customers, with a proven track record of long-term customer retention.

  • Possess the technical competency to understand Vanta’s software and build great relationships with highly technical prospects.

  • Have stellar problem-solving chops, and an enthusiasm for making a large impact early on at a start-up.

What you can expect as a Vantan:

  • Industry-Competitive Salary and Equity

About Vanta

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.
