Compliance, Investigations Analyst

Back to All Jobs

Coinbase has built the world's leading compliant cryptocurrency platform serving over 30 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.

Coinbase is committed to deterring illicit activities, protecting against exploitation by criminals, and complying fully with our legal and regulatory requirements. Being the most trusted brand in the industry is our key priority. We are looking for someone who shares our values, is a team player but can work independently, and who thrives in a dynamic environment. Investigation Analysts handle sensitive and high-risk cases and must maintain the highest ethical standards. Our Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Officer manages the Investigations Team.
