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.

About Investor Services

Carta Investor Services is redefining venture capital operations. Since 2018, our business has grown faster than any other provider in the space. We work with some of the largest venture capital firms in the world, building software to automate managing their investments. As we head deeper into 2022, our goal is to forge the future of how this industry operates and our hammer is engineering. We are building a distributed system that needs to be configurable enough for the most complex of customers. Its responsibilities are wide: money movement, an event-based general accounting ledger, calculating profit waterfalls, rule-based engines for reconciliations and allocations, workflow orchestrations, investment performance tracking, integrations from crypto wallets, incorporation tooling… just to name a few. 

Our business is set to double this year which is why we need you.

Who we are

We care deeply about our customers: investors, fund managers, fund administrators, tax/audit professionals, and others. We are relentless in our pursuit to create leverage for them. We do so by deeply understanding the domain and the jobs to be done. We run towards hard and messy problems. We serve the business, first and foremost, and invest in ourselves and each other in service of that effort. We are owners and that is the only title that matters. 

We take our work seriously, but not too seriously. We take equal pride in solving complex business problems like automating allocation calculations, as we do contributing to our Slack emoji portfolio. Stand-ups might include discussions on implementation details for a new Kafka event or our favorite microwavable snacks.

Your Role at Carta 

You will join our R&D team of learners, builders, experts, and leaders in our Investor Services group. Our group is building the next generation of software for the venture capital industry. We build software to help new funds launch, investors to track analytics and performance, for fund accountants operating the books and financial records for investment funds ranging from $100k through billions under management, and more. We work on a mix of greenfield opportunities and work informed by metrics.

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 technical skills and are an excellent collaborator.
  • You like solving for ambiguity: we’ll look to you for ideas on how to solve problems.
  • You implement systems large or small that are clear, maintainable, and correct. 
  • 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 may be passionate about some elements of the Carta tech stack (Python, Django, Javascript, React, Postgres, GRPC, Kafka); such experience is helpful but we do not require it. 

We look for candidates who are interested in, experienced with, or curious about…

  • Accounting or investment management
  • Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology
  • Customer relationship management
  • Document data extraction and digital signatures
  • Tax reporting and financial auditing
  • Banking and money movement

The Interview Process

Carta follows a standard tech startup interview process, where you will meet with a recruiter and hiring manager first. We’ll then ask you to show off your skills with a real-world take home exercise (we do not do LeetCode-style interviews, no one will quiz you on writing a doubly-linked list) and virtual interviews. During the process, you can ask questions to people across different parts of the Investor Services team to learn what kind of work we do and how it lines up with your interests. 




We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to providing a positive interview experience for every candidate. If accommodations due to a disability or medical condition are needed, connect with us via email at recruiting@carta.com. As a company, we value fairness, helpfulness, transparency, leadership and build our teams around these values. Check out our careers page to get to know us better as you think about your next step at Carta.
