Engineering Manager, Issuers

Company: Carta
Location: Palo Alto
Posted on: January 9, 2022

Job Description:

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. - Learn more about our Series G fundraising round here . - The Team You'll Work With This role is on the Issuers team. We're working on creating a complete profile of all VC backed companies, from understanding their business and financials to providing them an 11-star equity management experience. This will power the next generation of Carta products, enable plan management automation, and will be one of the most valuable datasets in the financial world. You will be working on the central workflows, data models and API's to support this! We place a high premium on experimentation and validated learning and we focus on being values and mission-driven, not didactic or prescriptive. Today, we manage upwards of 1 trillion of equity! - The Problems You'll Solve As an Engineering Manager for the Issuers team, you'll work in one of the most dynamic roles Carta engineering has to offer. You'll help set the charter of the team, execute against that charter with the team, all while guiding the career development of your direct reports. Here's a few examples of the problems you'll solve:

  • Hire future Cartans : Carta has a great team today. We're growing, and that means hiring. You will work with other engineering leaders to discover, interview, and recruit great team members and build them up into the next all star player.
  • Assess technical risk : Your experience will be a major factor in empowering your team to isolate, and reduce, technical risk. You will fill blind spots for your engineers, helping form the critical bridge between business, product, and engineering.
  • Drive accountability : Building more owners is as much of a Carta product problem, as it is part of a manager's responsibilities. You will work with stakeholders to better understand the needs of the business, and with your team to create realistic expectations for project success.
  • Establish best practices : Engineering managers are the last line of defense for quality control, best practices and effective design strategies. Helping your team, and peer teams, navigate these challenges is core to the problem space for managers.
  • Manage performance : Your team is a reflection of you, your values, and your support. Your team will need regular mentorship, advice and feedback to operate effectively. Contributing to this space along with your leadership team, is part of effective management at Carta.
  • Collaborate across functions : Your team will be working with multiple functions such as legal, compliance, operations, sales and customer success. Engineering managers occasionally need to be the glue that binds teams and engineers across Carta. About You You're a strong people manager with 2+ years of experience leading high performing engineering teams and 5+ years of experience as a full stack or backend engineer. You're excited by the idea of developing scalable production quality systems and working on projects end-to-end. Our stack is React, Python, Django, gRPC, Docker, k8s. This experience is appreciated though not required. - Here is who we're looking for:
    • You care deeply about software and the leverage that software brings. You can use your past experience building software to show your team the way in which they can improve our customer's leverage.
    • You are energized by, and capable of, super-charging the careers of those that report to you. You've been able to help mentor more junior engineers, and support more senior engineers in reaching their potential. -
    • You've expanded the worldview of your teams, celebrated diversity of thought and background, and tied it all back through successful product launches in your past.
    • You recognize the power of ownership, and have lived examples of where ownership played central roles in your career- through software and through business.
    • You are willing and capable of getting in the trenches alongside your fellow engineers and reports. You lead by example, and take pride in your work.
    • You are exceptionally technical. You can describe complex ideas simply. You are just as capable working toward a long term road map as you are jumping into a fire to solve a customer's problem 5 minutes from now.
    • You are hungry to learn about our customers and business. 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 recruiting team who will tell you more about the job and the company. Then, you'll meet the hiring manager for the Issuers team, Jayesh , 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, we will set up a 45 minute engineering management discussion with one of our engineering managers focusing on your experience supporting engineering teams. Finally, we will schedule you for another four or five meetings with other team members to discuss everything from technical design to Carta's culture to cross-team collaboration and what you can expect, and what is expected from you. - We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to providing a positive interview experience for every candidate.
