Ready to #LiveCrypto? Who you are:
We’re looking for Staff Software Engineers to balance the role of an individual contributor while also anchoring new projects, leading technical direction and mentoring other engineers on the team. We highly value individuals with intellectual curiosity and openness. We collaborate across the organization, helping our engineers think big and take risks while building a culture of diversity, positive energy and blameless truth-seeking. Our engineering team leverages a diverse tech stack and our focus is finding smart engineers who’ve worked on complex projects and we have all the trust you’d be able to pick up whatever tech necessary in the stack.
We have openings across a variety of backend teams. Here are a few examples:
Exchange: The Exchange team builds and operates the core systems that process and match orders across all of Coinbase (Consumer & Pro). These systems are almost always on the hot path for users so we are constantly working to improve our systems to reduce latency and jitter while maximizing throughput.
Backend Platform: The Backend Platform team is focused on building robust architectural foundations, toolsets and a culture for all of Coinbase engineering to build high quality, secure & reliable products.
Users: The Users team builds and operates user services such as identity verification, authentication and authorization. You’ll be working with OAuth that powers our mobile clients and third party developers, monrails that power 2FA authentication logic & our institution identity management service.
Institutional: The Institutional team builds and operates state of the art execution and storage systems that allow our customer to trade and store millions of dollars of cryptocurrency on any given day.
Crypto: The Crypto team builds and maintains the shared infrastructure to make Blockchains and Crypto assets available for products. You’ll work on engineering problems in cryptography, security, blockchain technology and distributed systems, with a focus on enabling Crypto investing and growing the Cryptoeconomy.
