Coinbase plans to add 2,000 employees across Product, Engineering and Design in 2022

At Coinbase we have an ambitious mission to increase economic freedom in the world. If we’re going to execute against the opportunity in front of us, we’re going to need more help to scale our existing products, and build new ones. In 2022, we plan to add up to 2,000 employees across our Product, Engineering, and Design teams.

We see enormous product opportunities ahead for the future of Web3. We believe our industry is in its infancy and that building onramps for individuals to participate is critical to driving the next generation use case of crypto. We’re also expanding to include products that host user generated content like NFTs, and we’re excited about our ambitious plans for the future of Coinbase Wallet, enhancing security, ease of use, and accessibility.

We are unwavering in our focus to build for the long-term, through every crypto cycle. It’s been one of the greatest drivers of our success to date. Through the highs, we get to focus on scaling and many new people get introduced to crypto. During the lows, we get to focus on product innovation. Whether the market is up or down, we see a clear opportunity, making Coinbase one of the most exciting places to work right now.

Who we’re looking for

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we prioritize clear communication, efficient execution, and continuous learning, among other qualities. We look for people that choose to take a mission-focused approach to their work. And we seek people with the desire and capacity to #LiveCrypto, actively building and sharing their expertise in crypto with those around them.

In return, we offer a once-in-a-career opportunity, with competitive, transparent compensation; unique benefits like multiple company-wide recharge weeks; and a remote-first environment where you’ll work on a championship team with some of the most talented people in our industry.

Crypto is at a critical juncture — public adoption is at an all-time high, crypto companies are more visible than ever before, and the explosion of Web3 applications is uncovering new possibilities every day. So if you’re excited by this opportunity and want to join us on our mission to increase economic freedom in the world, check out our Careers Page. We’re hiring.
