Come help us build the Carta LLC Experience

We’re looking for a talented engineer to join our team in the Limited Liability Companies (LLC) business unit. 

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

We are a diverse team of 10 individuals with big goals. We want to build a 2 million dollar business in 2020 and scale it to $20 million by the end of 2021. The scope and impact of each individual are immense. We are biased toward action and believe in the mantra of build -> measure -> learn. 

On the team, you'll collaborate closely with our product manager and designer to understand the motivation (why) behind a customer want, defining the scope of work (what), and build a solution (how) with your engineering peers to deliver the desired customer value. 

Our team is diverse in multiple axes: gender, nationality, technical specialization, and other quirks — this our strength. In such an environment, trust and humility are of utmost importance.

Our development philosophy closely mirrors Agile Scrum, but we are not afraid to deviate from it. We care about solving customer problems first and engineering problems second.

The Problems You’ll Solve 

As we expand beyond Venture Capital, we’ll need you to help define requirements and build solutions for products that bridge the gap for clients in Private Equity backed LLCs. We are building a brand new product to address this market.

Here are some problems we need you to help us solve:

  • LLCs are creatures of contracts, how do we model this variability in Carta? 
  • LLCs are used to represent many different types of asset classes, how are these nuances represented in the data model and how do they cascade into distinct product experiences? 
  • Private Equity firms, their investors, the lawyers, and their portfolio companies have many user personas and access controls. How do we offer great experiences to each of these users? 

As one of the first few engineers on this team, you will play a key role in building the initial data model and features for the foundational product. This is a collaborative effort across teams and disciplines. The choices we make will define our future product infrastructure. The cross-functional team is talking to top Private Equity firms and large enterprise customers to gather requirements for our roadmap. In this role you will:

  • Architecture, design and coding of highly available, secure, and scalable financial platforms
  • Test-driven development (TDD), high levels of code coverage and automation
  • Peer code review
  • Logging and monitoring of platforms for proactive assurance of availability and performance
  • Measuring results of system changes through metrics, both in speed and in business value
  • Be a mentor to junior developers 

About You

You have strong technical skills, are excited by “zero to one” projects, and enjoy working closely with stakeholders across engineering, product business and marketing. You have a desire to become a product domain expert and the ability to refine ambiguous product requirements to deliver customer value. You see communication as one of your strengths.

You have 5+ years of full-stack or backend engineering experience, and experience architecting complex SaaS products with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and microservices. You have industry experience developing scalable production quality backend systems. You have experience mentoring junior developers.

We use Java (primary) and Python (secondary) to build backend services, and React in the frontend. Java expertise is required. Prior experience in FinTech and all other technologies is ideal, but not required. Our team consists of people who are happy to help you learn everything you need to be successful at Carta.

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.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
