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. 

To learn more, here is what one of our investors wrote about leading our Series F. 

The Team You’ll Work With

This role is on the Equity & Custom Reporting team within our Corporations Business Unit. We are the flagship product of Carta and we provide Equity Plan Management for Private and Public companies. Today, we manage upwards of 1 trillion of equity!

The Equity & Custom reporting team is a collaborative and passionate group of professionals that includes product managers, engineers, designers, customer support and sales. We’re united by a common mission to create more owners and simplify equity management. We place a high premium on experimentation and validated learning and we focus on being values and mission-driven, not didactic or prescriptive.

The Problems You’ll Solve 

As private companies (think Stripe or Airbnb) mature the reporting obligations increase. Stakeholders, like CFOs, equity administrators and HR members need to extract data from Carta in the form of accurate, instant and customizable reports. These reports also need to be compliant and specific for third-party auditors. In this role, you will:

  • Build a reliable and scalable reporting service that enables our largest and most valuable customers to extract data in customized formats for their companies 
  • Tackle challenges that come with building a service that needs to be highly responsive, accurate and handle large amounts of data
  • Design, build and interact with a large variety of internal APIs in a microservices environment
  • Architect the future of Carta’s reporting service for our most valuable customers to grow Carta’s business

The Impact You’ll Have

Equity & Custom Reporting is one of the most important and frequently used Carta experiences, a must have for our customers. Your work will directly impact Carta business by improving customer efficiency, delighting customers, and providing an opportunity to deepen customer relationships. You will also impact Carta’s future tech stack and engineering culture by mentoring junior engineers and paving the path for a microservices based architecture while we fulfill our mission.

About You

You have 10+ years of fullstack or backend engineering experience building scalable production quality systems. You have strong technical skills, experience building systems that scale, and enjoy working with various types of skillsets and stakeholders across a fast-growing organization. Some knowledge of and interest in financial technology is ideal. You’re a strong communicator and enjoy building thoughtful, reliable and elegant solutions that truly drive business objectives. You’re not a bystander -- you’re an active participant and have a strong analytical opinion and position on how software should be engineered.

Our tech stack is Python, Django, React, Postgres and Scala. Prior experience with these technologies is ideal, but not required. We have people in our team who will help you figure it out, grow your skills and help you learn -- and ideally, learn from you too. We believe in transparent learning without ego. 

The Interview Process

Our team believes that interviews are a two-way process and we strive to make them enjoyable without any “gotchas.” The interview process starts with a call with a member of our warm, amazing recruiting team who will tell you more about the job and the company. Then, you’ll meet the engineering manager for the reporting team, Adi, who will walk you through the specifics of the position, the team structure, what we’re looking for, and of course, answer any questions you will have. This interview will last 45 minutes. Then, there’s a technical screen where you’ll be paired with one of the engineers on the equity & custom reporting team for a 90 minute pair programming exercise. Finally, we will schedule you for another four to five meetings with other team members to discuss everything from Carta’s culture to cross-team collaboration and what you can expect, and what is expected from you. 



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.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
