The Company You’ll Join

At Carta we create owners and make private markets liquid. 

We live in a world where some people live on the equity stack and enjoy exponential wealth growth and preferential tax treatment; others live on the debt stack and may work their entire lives for a company and retire only with the cash they’ve managed to save from their paychecks. Our contribution to solving the wealth inequality problem is moving people from the debt stack (payroll) to the equity stack. By making it as easy to issue equity to employees as it is to put them on payroll, we can create more owners. 

At Carta, we are helpful, transparent, fair, and kind. We are relentless executors, unconventional thinkers, and masters of our craft.

Your Role at Carta

Joining a team of passionate learners, builders, experts, and leaders to define and implement Carta's next generation of products and platforms. You'll collaborate closely with key stakeholders in Product, Business, and Design. Carta's software engineers contribute in many different ways: sometimes we are shipping new product features, architecting simple and maintainable systems, or training the organization on new technology solutions. You will make your own mark here.

The Teams and The Impact You’ll Have

You will join one of the following teams. You'll work directly with internal and external stakeholders to ensure we're building the right thing at the right time with the right people. Your contributions will enable Carta's mission to make equity more available and accessible to everyone.

  • Financial Infrastructure and Products: the team is building a payments platform that enables multiple payment rails (local and international) for fast, accurate and reliable settlements and provides out of the box treasury tools for reconciliation, audit and regulatory controls. 
  • Carta Total Compensation (CTC): Due to Carta’s market leading position, it has the largest source-of-truth dataset for private company equity compensation. The CTC Team is leveraging that data moat to build a product suite that will become the industry standard and single destination for compensation data, analysis, and workflow solutions. 
  • Employee: The team is building products for shareholders like you and me, employees, the largest demographic at Carta. Our vision as a Pillar is to help employees maximize their wealth through ownership. To achieve this, we’re building an outstanding portfolio of products that transform an employee’s relationship with their equity.

About You

Whether you are a new college graduate or a Staff Engineer with 10 years of leadership experience, you continuously strive to improve yourself and those around you. Additionally,

  • You have strong Frontend technical skills and experience architecting complex user interfaces at scales. 
  • You are excited by opportunities to both break ground on new projects and provide fresh perspective onto past implementations.
  • You want to build and own your work end-to-end.
  • You are eager to move fast, but recognize when to build for the future.
  • You understand that technology is only a piece of the puzzle, so you enjoy collaborating with others to help solve their problems. Those problems are usually lofty, complicated, and ambiguous, so your communications skills are honed and effective.
  • You are familiar with React and Typescript to build Frontend components and Webpack for building processes.

The Interview Process

First, one of our recruiters will call you to tell you more about the job and company. You'll then meet an Engineering Manager who will discuss your opportunities at Carta and explore your experience, skills, and goals. Next, we’ll send you a technical take-home exercise where you’ll implement a software solution to a small engineering problem. Finally, you'll have  five back-to-back conversations with Carta team members on a wide range of topics, including communications and collaboration, coding efficacy and techniques, and systems design.
