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

 The Data team at Carta is transforming what decision making looks like at the company. We believe that our data is what is key to setting us apart and will help us succeed as a data driven company. Members of the data team are working on understanding and making sense of data while partnering with product and business teams on helping drive direction with data. The team is currently composed of professionals in Data Science/ Machine Learning space, advanced Data Analytics space, and Data engineering. We like to partner with each other and with Cartans across the company to get our work done, and we like to constantly think about how we can improve. We also like to come up with new product ideas based on data.

The Problems You’ll Solve 

As a member of this team, you will be responsible for building and scaling our pipelines to make data accurate, accessible and secure. You will build systems that will allow the rest of the company answer questions they need in a self-service manner, and allow analysts and data scientists to quickly analyze and prototype new ideas. You will partner with the rest of the team on prototyping those new ideas and build scalable products. Examples of responsibilities will include: 

  • Build resilient data pipelines based on internal and external data sources
  • Implement data security practices to support CartaX, compliance & legal, and other areas of the company that require additional safeguards
  • Build or evaluate tooling for data accuracy detection and alerting
  • Partner with the rest of the team on prototyping and building scalable products driven by the data team
  • Partner with teams throughout Carta on identifying opportunities and building solutions to help in simplifying operations while producing rich and accurate data sets for us to use
  • Constantly identify opportunities for providing self-service tooling to our internal partners 

The Impact You’ll Have

By building scalable self-service solutions you will enable easier and faster decision making. In addition, you will be able to increase productivity and accuracy of our data team, and operations and product teams as well

About You

Even though our toolstack (Airflow, DBT, Redshift & Looker) are a good start, you will always be in the know on the latest and greatest technology we could utilize. You concentrate on automation and self service. You are also excited to build new products, starting with ideas and all the way to execution.  Example of problems you will solve include:

  • Building tools to automate data anomaly detection and alerting 
  • Scaling our data infrastructure and developing software that allows for improved data processing and automation
  • Evaluating build vs buy tooling
  • Scaling Looker as a platform to solve operational use cases as well as increase self service adoption around the company
