As Vanta continues to grow, our aspiration is to serve our International customers’ with a team who are present in EMEA, understand market context and have a passion for working with companies (often digital first) who have Headquarters in EMEA. 

We’re just starting to establish our EMEA presence, and we’re looking for motivated customer-centric Account Executives, who will also be excited to be involved in building the foundations for our EMEA business and culture. We're building a Sales team with Account Executives who will take ownership of the entire sales cycle, build our sales motion as we create our EMEA presence, 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.
