**The Problems You’ll Solve **

Carta is transforming how private companies, their investors and employees manage ownership. We have acquired substantial market share in industries such as technology and venture capital, but managing ownership is a problem faced by private companies from a broad range of industries, perhaps most notably the private equity industry.

  • Own the entire sales lifecycle, from lead generation to close
  • Drive revenue through outbound prospecting into private equity backed portfolio companies (partnering with an SDR, business development teams, and also working independently)
  • Understand customer needs and requirements, and act as a trusted business advisor to C suite and private equity investors.
  • Communicate the business impact of our product offerings to key decision makers within
  • Have an interest in m&a, the private equity industry, and act as the customer’s voice within Carta

The Team You’ll Work With

This role is on the Private Equity sales team within the “LLC” business unit. You will join a small but mighty team who are working to strategically grow Carta’s presence beyond the traditional venture capital ecosystem and into an even bigger ecosystem: private equity. The team is working with investment firms and with portfolio companies.

The Impact You’ll Have

You will help propel Carta to the next level of growth by evangelizing Carta to one of the largest private asset classes in the world - the private equity industry. You will introduce new customers to our best-in-class software platform to help them streamline their equity management, stay compliant, and unlock liquidity in the private markets. You love understanding a product in- depth and are passionate about communicating its value to customers and partners. You will work in a fast-paced innovative environment, take initiative to get stuff done, try new things and work in an extremely collaborative environment. Always prospecting for new opportunities, you will close new accounts while building relationships with some of Carta’s most sophisticated partners within the private equity investment space.
