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?
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.
