About Carta

We’re on a mission to create more owners. By building the global ownership management platform, we’re changing how companies, investors, law firms, and employees manage equity.

Our team is focused on converging private and public markets and mapping and connecting the global ownership network. We all believe we are building a generational company, that will change how ownership and finance works.

Job Description

At Carta, we’re building the future of equity and ownership. We’ve changed how companies, investors, and employees manage equity. Now, we’re transforming how capital markets operate. Our goal is to create more owners and increase transparency and liquidity for shareholders. More than 800,000 investors, law firms, and employees use our platform, and we manage over $575B in equity. 

About Carta(X)

In 2019, we raised $300 million in order to build the first ever “private stock market” called CartaX. Less than 2% of VC backed startups go public and when they do IPO it's not always in the employees favor.  To solve this problem, we are building the first ever trading platform that will allow employees of pre-IPO companies to trade private securities within a regulated marketplace. CartaX will be the world’s first vertically integrated financial marketplace for private securities which matches buyers and sellers using auction based technology. We believe this product will fundamentally change the way private companies view liquidity, going public and how employees exercise their options.

The Role

As manager for the CartaX SRE team you'll be responsible for building and operating distributed systems that underpin our liquidity offerings. These are financial systems that require careful thought and planning around resiliency, security, and operability. You will manage a team responsible for the architecture and operation of the infrastructure and services that live on top of it. This team will closely work with engineering teams in order to ship quickly and often while building and maintaining tools and resources that empower our engineers to be as effective and innovative as possible. 


  • 3+ year in a management role leading teams of engineers.
  • Experience working closely with product teams through every phase of the product life cycle - design, build, operation.
  • Experience with hosting distributed systems on a cloud provider (specifically, Google Cloud Platform or AWS)
  • “infrastructure as code” mindset (using tools like Terraform, Ansible, Chef, Puppet, etc)
  • Experience architecting and deploying core services and building blocks ( AWS infra, CI/CD, Security, o11y ) 
  • Experience with a higher level scripting language (Python, Ruby, Javascript, etc)
  • Some experience with compiled languages such as Java/Kotlin, Golang
  • Experience with containerization (specifically, Docker and Kubernetes)
  • Building and operating distributed systems.
  • Security design and implementation.

Nice to have

  • C/C++ programming experience
  • Experience with time series databases
  • Financial systems experience
