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 ink team is a mix of Design Technologists and Front End Engineers that are passionate about great design, great engineering, UI and Design Systems. We are a tightly knit team solving problems together, and we love to live in code, geek out about pixels for a bit, then discuss typography best practices for another bit, while pushing code to production every day.

Design Technologists on the ink team merge design and engineering skills to improve our ink design system. We also provide help and support to Product Designers and Engineers from other teams, and show them how to extract maximum value from the system. And we have trained eyes to identify future Product teams’ needs, and use that to inform our future roadmap.

The Problems You’ll Solve

How can Carta build great products, fast, and at scale? We believe our Design System, ink, to be a powerful tool to allow Carta to scale gracefully, without tech debt, while delivering a great experience at the same time.

As a Design Technologist on the ink team, you will:

  • Curate, improve, and reinvent our ink components (React, TS, Styled Components, Sass)
  • Participate in conception user interfaces, and iterative prototyping, having the ink Design System, and best industry practices in mind
  • Bridge the gap between Product Design and Engineering, by coding front-end components and interactions, pushing code to production and reviewing PRs
  • Advocate for our Ink Design System. Articulate the benefits of a systematic approach and persuade Product Management, Product Design and Engineering across Carta to embrace ink.
  • Identify opportunities to scale the Ink Design System and actively participate in defining new patterns, build new components, and promote their adoption
  • Understand the UI, UX, and code problems designers and engineers face

The Impact You'll Have

The ink design system is used by all teams at Carta. That means any improvements we ship are felt by all internal teams, and all Carta customers. From one end, we have tremendous access and power to influence the product design experience, and the front end engineering experience, and from the other end we define the Carta experience for customers using our products.

About You

You are someone passionate about design and coding. You are a visual communicator, yet enjoy living in code. You are a problem solver who understands the best design is a consequence of the best understanding of the context. You are able to articulate visual and technical requirements back and forth between stakeholders from different departments and disciplines, and you enjoy working within the constraints of a system, and advocate for its benefits for the company as a whole.

The Interview Process

A tech screen is usually the kick-off point for the interview process, followed by two sets of conversations with members from the Design, Engineering, and Product teams. Both the tech screen and the subsequent step are often done with more than one Carta team member present. In the third and last step of the process are often 1-on-1 conversations.

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 As a company, we value fairness, helpfulness, transparency, leadership and build our teams around these values.
