Your Role at Carta

You will join our team of passionate learners, builders, experts, and leaders to define and implement Carta's next generation of products, platforms, and infrastructure. You'll collaborate closely with key stakeholders in Product, Business, and Design. Carta's software engineers contribute in many different ways: sometimes we are shipping new product features, architecting simple and maintainable systems, or training the organization on new technology solutions. You will make your own mark here.

The Impact You’ll Have

Most of Carta's long-term success will come from products and technology that have yet to be built. Here is an incomplete list of how you might contribute:

  • Building customer-facing enterprise tools for equity administration
  • Creating data pipelines for asynchronously aggregating financial reports
  • Reinforcing service resiliency, availability, and fault tolerance
  • Streamlining the creation of new features and services within our ecosystem
  • Integrating with third-party vendors to provide reliable, accurate, and timely transfers of billions of dollars per year through Carta's platform
  • Refactoring existing features into standalone event-driven services
  • And others for you to discover and champion

You'll work directly with internal and external stakeholders to ensure we're building the right thing at the right time with the right people. Your contributions will enable Carta's mission to make equity more available and accessible to everyone.

About You

Whether you are a new college graduate or a Staff Engineer with 10 years of leadership experience, you continuously strive to improve yourself and those around you. Additionally,

  • You have strong technical skills and are an excellent collaborator.
  • You implement systems that are clear, maintainable, and correct. 
  • You are excited by opportunities to both break ground on new projects and provide fresh perspective onto past implementations.
  • You want to build and own your work end-to-end.
  • You are eager to move fast, but recognize when to build for the future.
  • You may be familiar with some elements of the Carta tech stack (Python, Django, Java, Javascript, React, Postgres, GRPC, Kafka); such experience is helpful but we do not require it. 

The Interview Process

First, one of our recruiters will call you to tell you more about the job and company. You'll then meet an Engineering Manager who will discuss your opportunities at Carta and explore your experience, skills, and goals. Next, we’ll send you a technical take-home exercise where you’ll implement a software solution to a small engineering problem. Finally, you'll have  five back-to-back conversations with Carta team members on a wide range of topics, including communications and collaboration, coding efficacy and techniques, and systems design.

Salary

Carta’s compensation package includes a market competitive salary, equity for all full time roles, exceptional benefits, and, for applicable roles, commissions plans. If you are located in New York, our expected cash compensation salary range for this role $161,500 - $290,000 (if applicable, + commission). We are hiring for multiple levels and locations, so final offers may vary from the amounts listed based on geography, experience and expertise, and other factors.

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?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

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. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
