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.
  • This role involves working closely with portfolio managers to develop investment strategies for digital assets and the supporting infrastructure. Responsibilities include executing on research projects to identify new sources of alpha for digital asset portfolios as well as contributing to the code base, data architecture, and broader tech stack that supports the portfolios. Daily interactions will be with seasoned investment professionals whose careers span the world's largest and most respected hedge funds and asset managers.

    Strong coding skills and an eye for identifying the simplest solution to a complex problem are required for this role. Work product will largely be independently executed and later peer reviewed; the ideal candidate will strike a good balance between independent work and soliciting feedback from the broader team to ensure project execution aligns with expectations.

    Strong interest in digital asset markets is a requirement. Because these markets trade 24/7, the role is not narrowly defined by standard business hours.

    Responsibilities: • Contribute to the development of a python-based systematic investment research platform • Clean, organize and analyze data using statistical techniques, focusing on trends and patterns • Combine finance, mathematics, statistics, and modeling to develop investment strategies • Apply computer science and software development skills to build and manage the technology stack • Interact with cloud-based solutions providers like Github, AWS, and Snowflake • Remain current on developments in the digital asset space including cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and DeFi

    Skills Required: • A keen interest and passion for blockchain technology, digital assets, DeFi protocols including crypto currencies, NFTs, and other tokenized assets • Strong python skills, including experience using pandas, numpy, and other common-use python libraries • Experience with GitHub, AWS, Snowflake, and other cloud-based solution providers is strongly encouraged • Coursework in computer science, data science, financial mathematics, and portfolio or data engineering • An enthusiasm for learning about new technology, both inside and outside of digital assets • A generous personality who works well with others in a team environment • A self-starter who can work independently and with an attention to detail
