What to expect when interviewing
Curious how to get inside? We want your spot at Coinbase to be just as good of a fit for you as it is for us. Our recruiting and hiring process aims to make sure both the business and the candidate are right for each other.
What we look for in candidates…
Working at Coinbase is no small feat, and getting in the door can be challenging. Having the technical and functional skills and experience to deliver results are critical (we call this “the WHAT”). We also want to make sure candidates can thrive in our environment (we call this “the HOW”). You can read more about our culture and the HOW here.
We work incredibly hard at Coinbase — for most of us, Coinbase is the most intense place we’ve ever worked. That intensity is only magnified by the sheer speed of crypto, and it often results in long days and long weeks. Working at Coinbase can be both intense and incredibly rewarding. Here’s good insight from our Chief People Officer about what it’s like on the inside. We look for candidates who look at this as an incredible opportunity for adventure - not a hindrance.
Once you apply, a recruiter will review your application to determine if there’s a match.
Next, you'll take COINsights to help us get a feel for how you like to work. Depending on the role, you may be screened for technical skill.
Rounds of interviews
As you continue, expect several rounds of interviews with hiring managers, teammates and cross functional partners.
