[2019] Software Engineer Intern - Data
San Francisco

Data Engineer Intern (Machine Learning)

Our vision is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity to the world by creating an open financial system. Our first step on that journey is making digital currency accessible and approachable for everyone.

Two principles guide our efforts. First, be the most trusted company in our domain. Second, create user-focused products that are easier and more delightful to use than any alternative. Those principles guide every decision across the company from design through engineering, from operations through security.

Digital currency is fungible, instantly transferable and irreversible. This attracts sophisticated bad-actors. First, fraudsters use stolen bank accounts or cards to try to buy digital currency and immediately move it to a private wallet that’s only in their control. Second, hackers target Coinbase user accounts in an attempt to drain their balance. We’ve been able to stay ahead of bad actors via a combination of machine learning, data-driven rules based systems and anti-fraud analysts. To learn more check out slides and video for a talk on this topic at Websummit 2016.
