As a cryptographer at Coinbase you will help deliver bleeding-edge cryptography into production to power the next evolution of Crypto.
We’re leading the way to “Threshold all of Crypto” by productionizing the latest threshold signing algorithms for our cryptocurrency wallets.
We’re developing the primitives and services to realize the future of decentralized identity and the building blocks of a new identity ecosystem.
Build privacy-enhancing crypto systems.
At Coinbase, you’ll be working on the foundational technologies that will eventually store $1T+ for tens of millions of users and institutions. We believe that new cryptographic primitives and protocols are necessary to provide our clients both secured long-term storage of assets and easy access to participate in the growing crypto-economy. We’re looking for people who are excited to have one foot in academia, and the other in production systems that will enable Coinbase to build an open financial system.
We’re looking for cryptographers motivated to productionize cryptography services at scale. These are people that like to read and build things from academic cryptography papers.
We’re looking for people who have depth in at least one area of advanced cryptography, e.g.: homomorphic encryption, post-quantum cryptography, multi- or threshold-signature schemes, zero knowledge proof systems, anonymous credentials, cryptographic accumulators, verifiable encryption.
We read, understand, and synthesize original research in the service of designing or improving Coinbase products. Our R&D strategy is “small research, big Development”. We maintain active relationships with academic researchers: they research; we deliver highly-scalable, production implementations.
We’re committed to making sustained contributions to Coinbase Open Source projects.
Go-lang for cryptography libraries. Go + GRPC + Protobuf for our services. (*Prior knowledge of Go is not required)
