The Team You’ll Work With
This role is on the Venture Capital Operations team and will help build Carta’s next generation lending and banking services. This year, our primary initiative is to scale Carta’s first lending product for venture capital and private equity funds, a Capital Call Line of Credit (CCL). We launched CCLs to market in April 2020, brought the product from 0 to 1 and now focus on scaling it.
We are a small and growing team currently consisting of three members who work on both underwriting and operations. We operate like a new startup with the backing of a stable and high growth core business. With this mentality, we work hand in hand with the business team and wear multiple hats. We care most about adding business value and voluntarily raise our hands to take on tasks even if they’re outside the scope of our day-to-day.
We have audacious goals but we take it one day at a time. We try hard to not over-invest and are not afraid to learn from past mistakes. We’re a group of quick iterators ready to pivot in an instant.
The Problems You’ll Solve
We’re in the early stages of architecting and building new financial platforms and applications. We want to hire people who will help us innovate and will continuously look for ways to improve what we do today. This role is key in shaping the future of financial products and in supporting the growth of Carta’s CCL loan book, which has already reached $900M!
Some of the problems you’ll help us solve are:
- Loan servicing / Client Relationship Management - We commit to operating with urgency when providing lending services to our clients. You will seamlessly work with clients to provide solutions and banking partners’ operations team to manage daily/monthly deliverables. You will be expected to develop a deep understanding of Carta’s fund administration service and platform.
- Project Management - Partner with other team members as a lead on new deals and manage timelines/expectations to close. There will be an aspect of loan underwriting, which is completely standardized.
- Risk Management - Have a mindset to protect the loan book of the banking partner(s). This will involve proactively managing risk by using Carta’s platform and working closely with internal teams.
- Fintech/Banking Interest - In this unique role in a unique company, you’ll quickly become a ‘subject matter expert’ for the CCL product. Over time we will lean on you to help us explore other financial products we can offer the venture ecosystem as well.
- Openness to learning new systems and company specific platform
- 2+ years of experience in commercial lending operations (or similar field)
- Experience working directly with clients / customers
- Experience in working with commercial lending operations is ideal
- Understanding of commercial loan underwriting is ideal
