Senior Software Engineer, Frontend


Remote job description

Our Frontend Engineers own and drive high-impact, user-facing projects at a hypergrowth company that has found product-market fit and is scaling quickly.

Vanta provides a security solution at scale for hundreds of companies that trust us with their most important data. We integrate deeply with our customers' SaaS providers, infrastructure, and employee laptops to analyze the relationships with that data and surface potential security threats in real time. As a Frontend Engineer, you'll work closely with Product and Design to surface these complex relationships and threats elegantly. At Vanta, you'll leverage your expertise of best-in-class web technologies and tools, improving our frontend web architecture and sharing these best practices with the team.

Today, joining Vanta as an engineer means seeing all parts of the business, growing and developing our team, shaping Vanta's culture from the earliest stages, and building core parts of our product and infrastructure that enable us to continue to grow and scale.

No security experience is required, just a passion for our mission to secure the internet and protect consumer data!

What you'll do as a Senior Software Engineer, Frontend at Vanta:
  • Deeply understand our customers and our market to build solutions addressing key pain points and opportunities for competitive advantage
  • Work closely with crossfunctional partners to discover, build, and iterate on scalable products that solve our customers' needs
  • Design, develop, and own new product functionality leveraging modern frameworks and tooling (TypeScript, React, Node.js)
  • Drive fundamental decisions for the future of our frontend web architecture
  • Spread your knowledge of best practices in modern frontend web development: design patterns, tools, and frameworks
  • Play a part in defining Vanta's engineering culture as we grow
How to be successful in this role:
  • Have at least 5 years of full time work experience as a software engineer, including 2 years working as a frontend engineer
  • Have played technical leadership roles for teams or complex projects in the past
  • Have a proven track record of building 0 to 1 products and features
  • Have previous startup experience, or worked in an environment that prioritizes a bias for action
  • Have prior work experience with TypeScript, React and Node.js
  • Have an interest in learning about security or prior experience in the space
What you can expect as a Vantan:

At Vanta, we are committed to hiring diverse talent of different backgrounds and as such, it is important to us to provide an inclusive work environment for all.

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

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.
