Mid/Senior Backend Engineer, Stock-Based Financing

Company: Carta
Location: Santa Clara
Posted on: January 16, 2022

Job Description:

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

Our team at Carta, Stock-Based Financing, is responsible for building financing solutions that shareholders like you and I (employees) can use. We enable shareholders to afford the upfront cost of exercises, reap the benefits of long-term capital gains, and access liquidity against their private stock. We will then focus on entirely new initiates like public-facing APIs, integrating with 3rd parties, Lender views in Carta (a new type of user!), and much more. We plan to hire a lot of engineers in 2022, so joining now will give you the advantage of influencing many early engineering decisions.

You'll join a small, cross-functional team as a Mid/Senior Backend Engineer. Day-to-day, you'll have opportunities to partner closely with other engineers, product managers, and business leaders. You will work closely with design to scope out work early and provide feedback. You will participate in team-wide and org-wide syncs to align on and drive best practices. We believe in smaller teams to allow for greater focus and have an immense amount of ownership over the problems that we solve. We have a strong collaborative relationship between Product and Engineering. Being helpful is ingrained in our culture.

The Problems You'll Solve

As a Mid/Senior Backend Engineer on Stock-Based Financing, you are primarily responsible for designing, building, and maintaining backend components. We are building the vast majority of our components from scratch, which means we can adopt best practices quickly and shape our technical roadmap with very little technical debt.

Some Of The Problems You Could Be Solving Include

  • Build and use production-deployed components
  • Shape and build domain-driven REST APIs
  • Collect technical, product, and design requirements for current and future projects
  • Work with design, product, and business functions on new projects and efforts 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 includes AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, CircleCI, Jenkins, and Datadog, 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 into microservices. You identify as a generalist but are regarded by your peers as profoundly 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, so your communications skills are honed and effective. You are extraordinarily mission-driven and are as excited about 0 to 1 projects as well as iterating.

    You have 5+ years of backend engineering experience and experience architecting complex SaaS products and microservices. You have industry experience developing scalable production quality backend systems. As a bonus, you have experience mentoring junior developers.

    Other Required Skills
    • Strong written and verbal communication skills
    • Experience building and maintaining a complex set of systems
    • Experience working with product leads to deliver on time and target
    • Experience working with SQL or other data storage systems, like ORM, NoSQL, or others
      We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to providing a positive interview experience for every candidate. If accommodations due to a disability or medical condition are needed, connect with us via email at . As a company, we value fairness, helpfulness, transparency, leadership and build our teams around these values.
