Principal Product Manager, Equity Advice

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

You will be responsible for the roadmap for Carta’s new equity advice offering, a company benefit that helps employees understand their equity, plan exercises in tax-advantaged ways, and connect one-on-one with professionals. Questions about exercise costs and taxes often hold employees back from taking action on their equity, so this product plays a key role in achieving Carta’s mission of creating more owners. This is one of Carta’s new personal finance products designed to help our employee user base of 1M+ maximize their wealth through ownership. (Read more about our personal finance products from CEO Henry Ward here.)

You’ll collaborate with teams across the organization, including those responsible for Carta’s flagship cap table product, our corporate strategy team, and our new tax advisory group. This is a high-visibility, B2B2C role for product leaders who have a passion for finding new ways to solve user problems, combining technology and data with high-touch, white-glove services.
