Hello from the CPO

Surojit Chaterjee

At Coinbase, we’re on a multi-decade journey to disrupt all of finance through technological innovation in crypto. To go on a journey of this scale, we need great leaders around us. Our APM program is geared towards developing the next generation of leaders who will take Coinbase to new heights.

As an APM, you’ll have the opportunity to work on state of the art technologies, and build products that touch hundreds of millions of people around the world to create a lasting impact. In the process, you’ll build life-long relationships with some of the most talented minds in tech. We are looking for entrepreneurs and innovators for this role. We’ll actively invest in your growth and development throughout the program to help you become a world-class product manager.


How long is the program?

Each APM class is two years long and consists of two one-year rotations. The first cohort will start August 2021.

How does team matching work?

Matching will consist of working with participants around their interests as well as working with product leadership to find a beneficial match. Teams will present on potential projects and team overviews during onboarding.

What kind of support does Coinbase provide to APMs?

Feedback is a huge part of Coinbase culture. There are a few support mechanisms that we have in place for APM participants.

Mentorship - This is a senior product leader ( director or higher) that will be paired up with you during the entire duration of the APM program. They are meant to give you career advice, advocate for you, and help you navigate the Coinbase org. You are expected to sync at least every other month.

Day to day manager - Through each of your two rotations you will have a day to day manager that you will have weekly or bi monthly 1:1’s.

Buddy - This is a Product Manager who you will meet with on an informal basis and help get you acclimated to Coinbase.

Program manager - This will be a dedicated member of the People team who will be organizing your learning and development, feedback sessions etc

Where can APM’s be located?

Given the company’s shift to remote-first, APM’s can be located anywhere in the United States. Once a quarter (pending health and safety guidelines), APM’s will be expected to come together for one week of learning development, networking, and social events.
