At Carta, our mission is to create more owners. By building an ownership management and execution platform, we’re changing how over 12,000 companies, and more than 800,000 investors, law firms, and employees manage equity around the globe.

We are looking for an SRE Manager to help scale our team and systems. Your primary responsibilities will be continuing to build the teams, systems and culture that will make our products, organization and infrastructure resilient, scalable, and reliable.

On the technical side you should have a strong background and opinions on distributed systems architecture, software development, systems theory and networking, and performance engineering including OS internals. You should have practical experience being responsible for production systems running at scale. You'll be hands on and also represent the SRE perspective in architectural and other engineering discussions. You understand how complex systems fail and spend the time and effort educating others.

On the non-technical side you should understand and believe that SRE is about product. You look forward to working closely with all aspects of the organization to make sure we're delivering the best products and services to all our customers- internal and external. You will be a champion of the SRE mindset which means spreading the culture and concepts of things like "psychological safety" and "just culture". You'll run blameless learning reviews and help continuously improve our processes across the board. You'll have responsibility for growing and mentoring the SRE team to support the increasing initiatives of the organization.
