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 team is responsible for building the shareholder experience. Shareholders are a crucial node in the Carta network. Their usage of the product lightens the load of company admins, while making it easy for shareholders to manage their equity.  We’re a cross functional team that enjoys working collaboratively to solve problems that employees (like you and me) at private companies face each day. Whether you’re debating the purpose of raisins in cookies, or learning latte art from one of our amateur artists, one thing is certain; we’re passionate about delivering the best experiences for our users.    

The Problems You’ll Solve 

As a Senior Frontend Engineer on our team, you’ll participate in architecting and designing complex SaaS products that solve meaningful problems for shareholders. You are actively contributing to improving our development process through educating the team on new technologies, driving domain-decomposition efforts, and providing mentorship to junior engineers.

You will help us build UIs that provide education and guidance to shareholders:

  • Internationalization of products such as exercising option grants and portfolios
  • Empowering users via self-serve tools to reduce the need for users to contact support
  • Prepare FE components to be reusable for future product areas such as liquidity

The Impact You’ll Have

Carta’s mission is to create more owners and today, shareholders are our largest audience. As an Engineer on our team, you’ll directly contribute to this mission by: 

  • Making the shareholder experience easy to use
  • Making equity approachable
  • Preparing companies & shareholders for liquidity

About You

You’re passionate about frontend development and have recent experience working with JavaScript/TypeScript Frameworks like React or Angular. A strong communicator who is comfortable working with stakeholders across the org to understand business requirements is needed. You understand that being an effective engineering partner means collaborating with product managers, backend, and mobile developers. You can make necessary tradeoffs when it comes to API specifications. If the idea of contributing to the design and development of complex SaaS products, and working on a highly collaborative, close-knit and cross functional team lights you up, let’s chat!
