Senior Engineering Manager, Tax

Company: Carta
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: January 16, 2022

Job Description:

The Company Youll 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 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.

At Carta, we are helpful, transparent, fair, and kind. We are relentless executors, unconventional thinkers, and masters of our craft.

The Team Youll Work With

The stakeholder pillar focuses on delivering value to employees of startups. We build products to help startup employees with tax advisory. The team is young and operates as a startup within a startup. Working with the tax team feels like working at an early-stage company but with the resources and support of one that is later stage. Heres a blog post by our CEO announcing the tax product.

As the senior engineering manager for a nascent product engineering team, you will be working closely with stakeholders in product and business operations to build & iterate quickly. You will play a key role in hiring and growing the engineers for the quickly growing full stack team. You will also work with the UX designers to build a delightful product flow for tax.

We are a highly collaborative team, vested in each other's success and believe in setting the right example for our teams.

The Problems Youll Solve

As the senior engineering manager for the tax product engineering team, you will be responsible for implementing iterative product features quickly and evolving the product development based on market testing. Though there is a focus on product iterations, you will be working closely with the product and business partners to identify long term foundational building blocks and build out those services with scalability in mind.

Heres a few examples of the problems youll be asked to solve:

  • People : Were growing, and that means hiring. You will work with other engineering leaders in the pillar to discover, interview, and recruit great team members and build them up.
  • Technical roadmapping : Your experience will be a significant factor in empowering your team to identify and handle technical risk and debt. You will work with your engineering team to engineer items such as domain-decomposition to the product roadmap.
  • Accountability : Building more owners is as much of a Carta product problem as part of a managers 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.
  • Improve performance : Your team is a reflection of you, your values, and your support. Your team will need ongoing mentorship, advice, and feedback to operate effectively. Contributing to this space, along with your leadership team, is part of effective management at Carta.
  • Expand collaboration: Business unit organizational models benefit from speed and autonomy but absorb known trade-offs in company-wide collaboration. Engineering managers are the hedge against that trade-off, bringing teams and engineers across Carta together. The Impact Youll Have

    This is the team building, one of the first products focusing on the employees of the startup ecosystem, the learnings from here would be highly leveraged for future products. As it's a highly visible product with a leadership focus across the organization, you have the ability to learn and grow along with the product's growth. As an engineering leader, you will also help the organization on technical strategy and building alignment on objectives as well as growing your team.

    About You

    You have 3+ years of experience hiring and leading high-performing engineering teams; you have managed multiple teams simultaneously for some portion of that time. You may have managed an Engineering Manager and a team through them. You have 8+ years of experience as a full-stack or backend engineer. Youre excited by the idea of developing scalable production-quality systems and working on projects from early ideation to long-term ownership. You are familiar with Python (or willing to learn it), but you might also have another language in your toolbelt. Our stack includes AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, CircleCI, Jenkins, and Datadog, but we value experience with similar technologies. As a bonus, you are genuinely full-stack; you know React or a similar framework and other common tools such as Webpack or Next.js; you are not afraid to jump into any layer of the tech-stack.

    Here Is What Inspires Us About You
    • You are a leader with significant background in architecting and designing systems, tools, and frameworks used by other engineers and proven ability to build and lead high-performing full stack engineering teams
    • You are energized by and capable of supercharging the careers of those that report to you. Youve been able to help mentor more junior engineers and support more senior engineers in reaching their potential.
    • Youve expanded the worldview of your teams, celebrated the 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 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 of working toward a long-term road map as you are jumping into a fire to solve a customers problem. You also have a demonstrated ability to make considered recommendations for trade-offs in a rapidly changing environment.
    • You are as hungry to learn about our customers and business as you are about the latest stack or Docker release.
