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 Financial 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, our team manages upwards of 1 trillion of equity! 

The Financial 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 

Some of the problems you would be helping us solve are:

  • Report data freshness, work in our infrastructure and data pipeline to get almost real time, fresh data on our reports.
  • Maintain our Financial reporting user experience suite, building intuitive and easy to use interfaces.
  • Data accuracy; guarantee data consistency in our financial reports
  • Service migrations from thrift to gRPC
  • Scope and define tasks and stories for development
  • Lead customer migration to the next generation of Carta’s financial reporting platform

The Impact You’ll Have

You’ll help deliver a reliable and scalable reporting solution that will enable our largest and most valuable customers to grow on the Carta platform, providing them with audit-defensible financial reports.

Successfully releasing and migrating customers from our previous tools, you will improve our customer's experience and trust in the Carta platform. This reporting solution will also reduce the amount of internal support required for this area of our product.

You'll move the Carta platform forward by adopting technologies such as Kafka and gRPC that will unlock future milestones.

About You

You have 3+ years of fullstack or backend engineering experience building scalable, production quality systems. You have strong communication skills and enjoy working with business stakeholders to understand business requirements. Together, you build thoughtful solutions. You’re passionate about FinTech and helping our customers empower their employees to understand and value their equity. 

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 Financial Reporting team, Luis, 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 30 minutes. Then, there’s a technical screen where you’ll have the choice of a Codility take-home assignment or being paired with one of the engineers on the Financial Reporting team for a 60 minute pair programming exercise. Finally, we will schedule you for another four to five meetings with other team members to discuss everything from coding and design to 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.
