Sales & Business Development
Dublin, Ireland
Posted on Friday, May 10, 2024

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Our BDRs will take ownership of our outbound sales engine and help to build pipeline as we move into several more areas of the security industry, build out our International operations, and distinguish Vanta as best-in-class to prospects in a burgeoning competitive landscape. Our first International hires will also be able to lay claim to ‘founding team’ status in the years ahead. As Vanta’s growth trajectory continues.

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 and we're continually outpacing our growth targets while maintaining very strong NPS scores. Needless to say, it's an exciting time! We're scaling our Business Development team with a customer-centric and commercially minded BDR who will take ownership of our outbound sales engine and help to build pipeline as we evolve our business, and push to disrupt and improve the security space.

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.
