At Vanta, our mission is to secure the internet and protect consumer data. We achieve this by empowering companies to adopt better security practices and demonstrate them effortlessly. Security should be continuously monitored and verified, and at Vanta, we are committed to making that process straightforward. Vanta operates as a collaborative, remote-first company and values alignment with our core principles.

We are currently seeking a B2B Senior Designer to join our Product Platform team.

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.
