Company Description

Drata is on a mission to help build trust across the internet.

Drata is a security and compliance automation platform that continuously monitors and collects evidence of a company's security controls, while streamlining compliance workflows end-to-end to ensure audit readiness.

We all recognize the importance of earning and keeping the trust of our customers. A clean SOC 2 report proves to our customers that we do the things we say we do when it comes to protecting their data. We all want to provide our customers with that verified proof, but as SaaS veterans ourselves, we've felt firsthand how burdensome achieving and maintaining a strong security and compliance posture can be at a fast-growing company.

Despite its vital importance, the act of engaging in compliance activities is hated by virtually all those who participate! It's a manual, redundant, error-prone, and unscalable process - and it only grows more complex and expensive over time. Our team of SaaS, security, compliance, and audit experts have built a better way - with automation!

Job Description

Drata is looking for an experienced Business Operations Manager to join the company. This person will be a key, cross-functional member of the team and should have experience working collaboratively across the business units of a fast-growing, B2B SaaS startup. We’re looking for someone who can provide leadership and expertise around our sales and marketing operations and ensure that we’re optimizing available data streams in order to produce sophisticated analysis and razor sharp strategic planning and decision-making. We pride ourselves on doing more with less, and will look for someone to match (or better yet, exceed) our ability to operate and execute swiftly in the weeds while also zooming out to plan long-term strategy. This role will report to Drata’s Director, Demand Generation.
