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 Infrastructure team is responsible for creating leverage for the Engineering organization at Carta. We strive to provide best-in-class solutions to our developers so that they can be as productive as possible in solving problems. We provide frameworks, tools and consulting to enhance the robustness, reliability and resiliency of everything we ship. The team is made up of generalists who love solving problems with others but we all have a speciality that makes us greater than the sum of our parts. We like when solutions are consistent and cost-effective but we value solving our customers problems above all else.

The Problems You’ll Solve 

  • Build a service framework that empowers the other engineers to focus on building their products instead of writing boilerplate code
  • Create tools that enable more effective debugging and monitoring in a distributed system
  • Migrate legacy systems to use all of the great tooling we're building without impacting production availability
  • Work with teams across the company to solve adhoc issues that span the entire stack
  • Promote standards and best practices on everything from API design to language specifics by collaborating and iterating on solutions with stakeholders
  • Set new projects up for success by helping them get started on our latest frameworks, libraries and tools

About You

You have 5+ 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. Our stack today includes AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, CircleCI, Jenkins, Datadog, and gRPC but we value experience with similar technologies. You've worked in a monolithic environment and have felt the pain as organizations grow. Ideally you've helped transform that same environment to microservices. You identify as a generalist but are regarded by your peers as deeply knowledgeable in a specific area. You understand that technology is only a piece of the puzzle so you enjoy collaborating with others to help solve their problems. Those problems are usually lofty, complicated and ambiguous which is why your communications skills are honed and effective. You are extremely mission driven and are as excited about 0 to 1 projects as you are 1 to n.
