Sales Trading Manager
New York, NY

Our vision is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity by helping create an open financial system for the world. We are focused on making digital currency accessible to everyone and are guided by two key principles: be the most trusted company in our industry and create products that are easy to use.

GDAX plays a critical role in achieving that vision. As public blockchains create an open financial system for the world, sophisticated traders will need a place to discover, access, and exchange digital assets. We are focused on building the most trusted and secure digital asset exchange for institutions and professional traders. These traders will bring important liquidity to the industry, providing improved price stability and enabling more people to participate in an open financial system.

This is where you come in — we are looking for someone to stand up and operate a block trading desk for GDAX. You will serve as the trusted counterparty to the world’s largest traders, establishing GDAX as the premier block trading destination in the industry. You will work closely with our Product, Sales, and Risk teams to provide on and off-exchange execution options for institutions and HNW individuals. If you’re excited about bringing a new asset class to the financial world, this is the right team for you.

A little about us: we are a cross-functional, product-driven team dedicated to building the premier digital asset exchange in the world.  We value positive energy, continuous learning, and clear communication and are committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment for people from all backgrounds.
