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.
You’ll be working with engineers, designers, product managers and business partners across Carta. You’ll find engineers that can teach you about software unique to our industry, and business team members with deep knowledge in accounting and venture fund management.
Within your team, Investor Services (IS), you’ll meet teammates of all experience levels and backgrounds, passionate about creating software that unlocks more owners. Weekly (currently virtual) rituals, celebrations and show-and-tells are all ways you’ll build great bonds with the team you work alongside. You’ll be surrounded by people who find purpose in their work, and have fun doing it at the same time. You’ll find teammates with deep levels of pride in what they do, and a customer-obsessiveness that is furthered by regular feedback cycles. You’ll find that your teammates deeply understand the domains in which we operate — we not only understand what we are building, but why we’re building it, and the impact it will have on our customers.
Importantly, you’ll find a higher than “normal” level of transparency, trust and autonomy - something Cartans (Carta employees) have celebrated since the earliest days of the startup.
As an Engineering Manager in Investor Services, you’ll execute in one of the most dynamic roles Carta engineering has to offer. Here’s a few examples of the problems you’ll be asked to solve:
There is no greater representation of the impact that you will have, than the impact your team will have over the course of your tenure. To that end, your major focus will be on making the Investor Services roadmap a reality.
On IS, we are migrating an entire industry - Fund Administration of venture capital funds - into software. Venture Capitalists, Fund Managers and practically any other investor involved in collective investment strategies use Fund Administrators to help operate their funds. The existing, service-based solutions are expensive, inefficient, and prone to human error. With the introduction of Carta’s event-based accounting platform, Carta is (and you are) positioned to unseat the incumbents, and revolutionize this industry.
We’re looking for someone rare in this role, and we’re willing to take our time to find this person. You’re a strong and proven manager with 2+ years of experience managing highly technical teams in a deeply complex business domain.
