The Team You’ll Work With

The mobile platform team is responsible for building out the architecture, framework, and tools necessary to create top-notch experiences for Carta customers on the go using our mobile client apps on iOS and Android. We have a highly skilled team of native iOS and Android engineers working in a highly collaborative and supportive environment, doing everything we can to improve our mobile app’s features, reliability, and most of all customer satisfaction when using the app to view holdings, exercise options, sell shares on the public market, and more.

You’ll join our team as a Senior Software Engineer. Day-to-day you’ll have opportunities to partner closely with other engineers, product managers, and business leaders. We believe in smaller teams to allow for greater focus and have an immense amount of ownership over the problems that we solve.  We have a strong collaborative relationship between Product and Engineering.  Being helpful is ingrained in our culture.

The Problems You’ll Solve

We’re looking for a skilled backend engineer to work in concert with the mobile engineering team to improve the way in which we send and receive data from Carta’s backend services from the mobile client apps.

Specific problems you’ll solve:

  • Identify and upgrade mobile API endpoints to newer versions which follow improved and standardized API patterns
  • Work with both the mobile team and their respective feature teams to migrate mobile API endpoints to the teams which should own the feature area
  • Identify unused and/or deprecated endpoints and remove the unused code from the monolith in order to improve engineering quality and efficiency in the backend
  • Champion and pioneer a unified API approach for both web and mobile across all of Carta’s services

The Impact You’ll Have

Your work will be transformational to how Carta designs and approaches backend services and the APIs which provide the data for each domain as we strive to take on a mobile-first approach with Carta’s financial technology products. Your work will also impact our ability to provide public API endpoints for third-party integrations, unlocking Carta’s potential to power better experiences for all of our customers.

About You

You have 6+ years of backend experience working as an individual contributor. You are familiar with Python (or willing to learn it) but you might have another language in your toolbelt as well. You have experience with a significant portion of our tech stack, which includes AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, CircleCI, Jenkins, Datadog, and gRPC. You understand and apply the principles of high-quality API design for both REST and gRPC, have fantastic attention to detail, and write clear and concise documentation for every API endpoint you create. 

In addition to being deeply passionate about using technology to solve problems, you have excellent communication skills and collaborate easily with others. You are enthusiastic, helpful, respectful, and professional and you always get the job done. You’re able to thrive in a startup environment where you can cut through ambiguity and deliver elegant, high-quality solutions.

You are extremely mission-driven and are as excited about 0 to 1 projects as you are 1 to n.

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, New York, our minimum cash compensation salary range for this role is $204,000 - $240,000 (if applicable, + commission). Final offers may vary from the amount listed based on geography, candidate 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.
