Experience Level
Desired Skills
  • Truth: Audit is time consuming and clients catch errors
  • Fund legal documents must be retrieved and searched through to verify rules
  • We imagine a system where every output can be easily justified by seeing the math, accounting, legal documents, and business event that caused it altogether in one experience
  • 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 theyve 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
  • This role is on the fund admin automation team within Investor Services
  • We solve for our internal fund administration team and CFOs/fund managers
  • We build the general ledger, nitty gritty accounting logic, and are stewards of data quality for our clients
  • We are the tip of the spear for the future of fund admin
  • We are a team that moves quickly and values execution above all else
  • We pride ourselves on developing deep domain expertise so we understand complex accounting systems and bridge the gap between where we are today and what the future could be
  • We are thoughtful, hold the bar high for what good looks like, and are our own most stringent critic of the outcomes we produce
  • Our fund admin business has grown at an unprecedented rate since we entered the market in mid 2018
  • To power this growth, weve built a world class accounting team, our own general ledger, and a framework we call event-based accounting
  • Our challenge now is to use this foundation to build the fund back office of the future; one where the accounting is automated and the fund administrator is freed up to provide white glove, CFO-like service
  • One where the accounting data is completely accurate and kept up to date in real time
  • We break this down as two objectives- create leverage for our team and a source of truth for our clients
  • Youre a problem solver who gets into the details
  • You know how to figure things out and ship good product where others spiral
  • Youre naturally curious and obsessive about learning
  • You care about doing the right thing as much as you do winning
