Mobile Engineer (iOS or Android)

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 is responsible for building the shareholder experience. Shareholders are a crucial node in the Carta network. Their usage of the product lightens the load of company admins, while making it easy for shareholders to manage their equity. We’re a cross functional team that enjoys working collaboratively to solve problems that employees (like you and me) at private companies face each day.
The Problems You’ll Solve
As a Mobile Engineer on the team, you’ll play a critical role in making sure our mobile product meets the needs of our shareholders on their preferred platform while making sure our platform is prepared for future products.
A few examples of challenges you’ll tackle early on:
- Contribute to projects that fill functionality gaps on either the iOS or Android platform for our employee shareholders (eg. exercise history, payment status, exercise simulator)
- Contribute to the development of products that increase engagement by allowing shareholders to manage their equity on the go
- Expand our platform’s functionality and users to include supporting different types of shareholders
The Impact You’ll Have
Carta’s mission is to create more owners and today, shareholders are our largest audience. As an Engineer on our team, you’ll directly contribute to this mission by:
- Making the shareholder experience easy to use
- Making equity approachable
- Preparing companies & shareholders for liquidity
- Making improvements to the mobile platforms
