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.

The Team You’ll Work With

Our mission is to enable data-driven decisions and products across Carta by collecting accurate data, building scalable infrastructure and delivering advanced analytics. We believe in building a strong data foundation to ensure data quality and to promote self-service across the company. The team is split between Data Science/ Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Data Engineering and People Analytics. 

The People Analytics team partners closely with each team within the People organization to inform, measure and scale initiatives that support 1500+ Cartans globally. This role will support a broad spectrum of teams (Recruiting, People Ops, Total Rewards, Finance) and functions (growth models, employee engagement, predictive models for employee sentiment).

The Problems You’ll Solve 

This role will be responsible for building and scaling our people reporting and analytics capabilities across the business, providing insight into everything we do as a People team. This work involves answering big, and small, questions on how we find the best talent; fostering an environment of growth, innovation, and inclusivity; understanding employee engagement, and morale; and ensuring that we’re investing in and retaining the future leaders of Carta. In this role, you will partner with stakeholders across the People team to identify opportunities for impact, run analyses, solve problems, and influence action. We’re looking for a critical thinker who is naturally curious and motivated to improve how we unlock and deliver insights in real-time.
