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

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.
