Global Head of Partner Success

Back to All Jobs

Coinbase has built the world's leading compliant cryptocurrency platform serving over 73 million accounts in more than 100 countries. With multiple successful products, and our vocal advocacy for blockchain technology, we have played a major part in mainstream awareness and adoption of cryptocurrency. We are proud to offer an entire suite of products that are helping build the cryptoeconomy and increase economic freedom around the world.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, disrupt ourselves, and expect sustained high performance because we play as a championship team. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people with the desire and capacity to build and share expertise in the frontier technologies of crypto and blockchain, in whatever way is most relevant to their role.

As Global Head of Partner Success, you will develop and execute comprehensive playbooks that define how Coinbase will provide world class service to our global network of asset issuers and developers -- from partner onboarding and account management to competitive research and community engagement. Working in heavily cross-functional teams, you will design, operationalize and scale the programs and processes required to deliver the most amazing Coinbase experience to our external partners and internal stakeholders -- while maintaining full compliance with legal, compliance and information security guardrails. You will also recruit, manage and coach a global all-star team of program managers, account managers, customer service agents, operations associates, data analysts and technical researchers.

What you’ll be doing (ie. job duties):

  • Scale Asset Listings by an Order of Magnitude
    • Develop, maintain and continuously improve the programs and policies required to meet our quarterly and yearly asset listings goals.
    • Provide our legal, compliance and information security teams with operational leadership to help them scale their asset evaluation processes.
    • Deliver the best  possible experience (CSAT) to our external partners and internal stakeholders by defining, measuring and exceeding key service level metrics (e.g., asset application review/approval rates, response times, cost targets).
  • Develop Top Talent
    • Lead recruiting, onboarding and performance management of a global team. Aim for at least 80% of your team making an outsized impact by exceeding the highest bars for what they do, and how they do it. 
    • Develop and manage a learning team that can design and facilitate training programs required to increase team size by at least 5x over the next year.
    • Train, manage and expand a global BPO team that can scale up and down as needed to support your team’s responsibilities, as well as ad hoc projects for important product initiatives.
  • Proliferate the Global Coinbase Ecosystem
    • Help shape product roadmaps by recommending new customer features through problem statements supported with data, insights and market intelligence.
    • Develop and manage a “voice of the customer” program that helps leaders across the globe connect with front line partner experiences. 
    • Create and operationalize scalable playbooks that define how we can support our Product teams beyond asset listings, such as decentralized applications (“dApps”) and other products and services across the rapidly evolving Coinbase ecosystem. 
  • Engage and Inspire the Crypto Community
    • Develop and facilitate scalable community engagement and outreach programs (e.g., online and offline events) that help Coinbase connect with asset issuers, developers and project teams all around the world.
    • Ensure Coinbase has an active voice wherever our partners are actively discussing crypto projects in online channels like Discord and Reddit, as well as offline channels like events and conferences.
    • Manage and scale our newly formed Crypto Intelligence team to provide internal stakeholders with research and insights that support workstream prioritizations, asset due diligence and risk monitoring, as well as reporting on emerging trends and investment opportunities.
