At Coinbase, our mission is to increase economic freedom around the world, and we couldn't do this without hiring the best people. We're a group of hard- working overachievers who are deeply focused on building the future of finance and Web3 for our users across the globe, whether they're trading, storing, staking or using crypto. Know those people who always lead the group project? That's us.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for candidates who will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, and disrupt ourselves. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people who are excited to learn about and live crypto, because those are the folks who enjoy the intense moments in our sprint and recharge work culture. We're a remote-first company looking to hire the absolute best talent all over the world.

Ready to #LiveCrypto? Who you are:

  • You've got positive energy. You're optimistic about the future and determined to get there.
  • You're never tired of learning. You want to be a pro in bleeding edge tech like DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, and Web 3.0.
  • You appreciate direct communication. You're both an active communicator and an eager listener - because let's face it, you can't have one without the other. You're cool with candid feedback and see every setback as an opportunity to grow.
  • You can pivot on the fly. Crypto is constantly evolving, so our priorities do, too. What you worked on last month may not be what you work on today, and that excites you. You're not looking for a boring job.
  • You have a “can do” attitude. Our teams create high-quality work on quick timelines. Owning a problem doesn't scare you, but rather empowers you to take 100% responsibility for achieving our mission.
  • You want to be part of a winning team. We're stronger together, and you're a person who embraces being pushed out of your comfort zone.
  • Coinbase Ventures invests in exceptional founders who share Coinbase's mission of creating more economic freedom for the world. We develop research and insights at the edges of onchain innovation, invest in early stage teams / projects in the crypto/web3 ecosystem, and support our portfolio of over 400 companies around the world.

  • Support all aspects of the Ventures investment lifecycle, including:
  • Develop thematic research and data-driven insights on the latest trends in the crypto ecosystem
  • Source and perform evaluations and diligence on early stage investment opportunities
  • Help drive investment decisions, manage deal pipeline, and support portfolio companies
  • Be an external presence in the crypto ecosystem, building connective tissue with founders, investors, and technical subject matter experts
  • Over time become the “go-to” subject matter expert in multiple themes / verticals to support both Ventures investments and broader Coinbase product strategy
  • Drive select special projects to continually improve and upgrade Coinbase Ventures operational platform and processes (i.e., “firm building”)
  • What we look for in you (ie. job requirements):

  • 3-5+ years experience in a highly analytical business role (e.g., investment banking, management consulting, VC/PE) focused on emerging technologies AND/OR technical building role (e.g., product, engineering) in crypto/web3 ; investing experience is a plus
  • Demonstrated passion and understanding across the crypto landscape with strong points of view and emerging investment judgment
  • Excellent writing skills and ability to distill complex topics into clear, easy to understand messaging
  • Excellent organizational, analytic, problem solving, and communication skills
  • Affinity to network, develop ecosystem relationships, and publish thought leadership / content
  • Experience working with startup management teams and cross-functional execs, including product, engineering, legal, and finance
  • BA/BS degree
  • Nice to haves:

  • Experience evaluating consumer / application layer products and business models (crypto or web2)
  • Experience at top-tier venture capital firm and/or crypto specific company
  • Data Analysis and/or Engineering experience, preferably in or with blockchains (e.g., faculty with Dune, Nansen, other blockchain data tools)
