The Problems You'll Solve

At Carta, our employees set out on a mission to unlock the power of equity ownership for more people in more places. We believe that the problems we solve today unlock the opportunities of tomorrow. As a Tax Associate, you’ll work to:

  • Turning professional services into products is challenging: how do you productize workflows so that we can deliver the fastest tax solutions with perfect accuracy?
  • We are at the intersection of finance, tax and technology: how do we build a tax engine that will make tax filings feel as simple as ordering a book online?
  • We automate investment structures in venture capital: how can you help scale post-deal processes so that each container is as seamless and fun to use as the last one created?

The Team You'll Work With

You’ll be joining Carta’s Tax team as a Tax Associate, assisting in delivering tax returns and supporting the delivery process.

Your clients are the most talented venture capitalists, fund managers and dealmakers in the world. You will help them realize their ambitions of supporting the companies of tomorrow through our next-gen investment stack (including legals, vehicle formation, banking, investor onboarding and much more).

You will also be collaborating with our wider Carta accounting, fund administration and compliance teams on relevant tax issues that relate to Carta’s products and services.

About You

Must have experience supporting the preparation and filing of tax returns and IRS e-filings. Some of the responsibilities of this role include:

  • Assist with tax return processing including e-filing and mailing of federal and state filings, as applicable.
  • Scan and file federal and state notices as received and maintain notice tracker.
  • Assist with routing tax-related client inquiries to the relevant federal, state or international tax team members.
  • Collect and validate relevant tax records and financial data via proprietary Carta Tax software to facilitate the preparations and reviews of tax returns.
  • Support special projects on an ad-hoc basis.
  • Provide administrative support to tax team leaders.
  • Experience with income tax filing software such as GoSystems Tax RS, but not required.
  • Excited to work on wider team projects which are not directly tax-related (e.g. legal, financial) as well as interacting with clients on administering their investment structures.
  • High attention to detail: written and quantitative. You must be confident navigating your way around complex tax structures and documentation in relation to this.
  • Organized and calm under pressure, you are able to manage competing demands on your time, whilst persevering to solve ambiguous problems.
  • Passionate and knowledgeable about venture capital: you intimately understand the pressures facing our clients and are ready to roll up your sleeves in a post Series-A rocket-ship start-up.
  • You’re interested in working on projects in a fast-paced environment with a supportive team and as an individual.
  • You have experience leveraging technologies to automate processes and gain efficiencies.
  • You have strong critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making skills.
  • You take pride in your ability to communicate effectively and are able to multitask to meet multiple deadlines.
