Account Manager - EMEA (DACH)
[Language Specific: German]
We’re just starting to establish our EMEA presence, and we’re looking for a motivated Account Manager, who will also be excited to be involved in building the foundations for our EMEA business and culture. As one of our founding Account Managers, you will take ownership of the expansion and retention of a subset of Vanta’s EMEA customers by developing and maintaining strong relationships with our customers.
You will serve as the primary point of contact for all post-sale commercial conversations, including mid-cycle upsells and renewals. As a trusted advisor to the customer, you will deeply understand their business needs and align Vanta’s solutions with their objectives to help mature our customers’ compliance and security program.
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.
The goal of this team is to achieve overall net revenue expansion of the Vanta customer base, as measured by Net Revenue Retention. They will ensure customer’s security and compliance goals are aligned to their company growth needs and with Vanta’s solutions.
If this sounds like you, and you’re excited to be a part of our founding EMEA team we'd love to hear from you! This role will be based in London.
What you’ll do as a founding Account Manager for the DACH region at Vanta:
Develop and maintain strong relationships with assigned accounts, acting as a trusted advisor and strategic partner.
Develop a deep understanding of Vanta’s current product offerings and take initiative to learn Vanta’s product roadmap to speak confidently when addressing customers.
Maintain strong partnerships and alignment with CSMs to understand customer health, ensure close strategic collaboration and execute harmonious communication to accounts.
Collaborate on account plans that identify new opportunities for expansion with current customers to increase their usage of Vanta’s platform via new frameworks, security tools, etc.
Manage the entire sales cycle of any expansion or renewal opportunity from first meeting to close, negotiating where necessary and pulling in additional internal resources where appropriate (solutions consultants, subject matter experts, etc).
Accurately forecast monthly expansion and churn, and maintain a clean SFDC instance with pipeline hygiene.
Keep a relentless focus on the customer needs and provide a consultative approach in architecting a solution.
How to be successful in this role:
Have 3+ years of experience in Account Executive or Account Management at a SaaS company
Ability to work in our London office in a hybrid setting
Strong ability to prospect and build pipeline without assistance from BDR and/or inbound support
Exceptional communication skills (written, verbal, visual), both for internal audiences and customer-facing messaging
Be highly motivated with a sense of urgency and willingness to adjust
Able to effectively collaborate with a wide range of departments including CS, Marketing, Enablement, and Support
Previous experience in security and compliance is not required, but highly desirable!
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. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender identity, age, religion, sexual orientation, veteran or disability status, or any other protected class. As an equal opportunity employer, we encourage and welcome people of all backgrounds to apply.
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.
