Carta is hiring a

Senior Software Engineer, API Platform

New York, United States

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

Carta’s Corporations team is responsible for solving problems and building features for late-stage private companies. You’ll play a crucial role in delivering reliable and scalable solutions that enable our largest and most valuable customers to grow on the Carta platform. We’re a team of learners and are passionate about solving problems that go beyond the obvious. You can expect to be pushed outside of your comfort zone while learning new technologies, and stretching your leadership skills. 

How we work 

Our team isn’t confined to one area, you’ll contribute to solving some of the biggest challenges Carta faces at any given moment. Our success is measured by impact. As a senior engineer on the Corporations business unit, you will be solving problems end-to-end. This begins with helping identify the problem, then formulating solutions, architecting, and finally implementation of the frontend and backend. Everyone on the team is an equal contributor with full ownership of the problems and deliverables.

What you’ll contribute to: 

  • Architecting complex SaaS products end-to-end
  • Partner with business stakeholders to solve meaningful problems for our largest customers 
  • Actively contribute to improving our development processes, providing mentorship to team members, and driving adoption of new technologies

The Impact You’ll Have

Our Enterprise team works closely with product and business to understand the highest priorities of our biggest customers. By understanding their challenges, improving the underlying infrastructure, and building solutions atop of them, our impact is far reaching and directly contributes to Carta’s growth. 

About You

With 5+ years of full stack experience and strong systems fundamentals, you’re excited by the idea of working on projects end-to-end.  Our stack is React, Python, and Django -- this experience is appreciated though not required.  We need a strong communicator who is comfortable collaborating with stakeholders across the org to understand business requirements and build thoughtful solutions. If the idea of contributing to the design and development of complex SaaS products, and working on a highly collaborative, cross functional team excites you, let’s chat! 

The Interview Process

Our team believes that interviews are a two-way process and we strive to make them enjoyable without any “gotchas.” The interview process starts with a call with a member of our warm, amazing recruiting team who will tell you more about the job and the company. Then, you’ll meet the engineering manager for the team, Rob, who will walk you through the specifics of the position, the team structure, what we’re looking for, and of course, answer any questions you will have. This interview will last 45 minutes. Then there’s a technical take home assignment where you’ll be working on a practical problem in the language of your choice. The take home assignment is not timed but most people take about two hours or less. Finally, we will schedule you for another four or five meetings with other team members to discuss everything from Carta’s culture to cross-team collaboration and what you can expect, and what is expected from you.
