Chief of Staff to the CEO

Back to All Jobs

At Coinbase, our mission is to increase economic freedom around the world, and we couldn’t do this without hiring the best people. We’re a group of hard-working overachievers who are deeply focused on building the future of finance and Web3 for our users across the globe, whether they’re trading, storing, staking or using crypto. Know those people who always lead the group project? That’s us.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for candidates who will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, and disrupt ourselves. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people who are excited to learn about and live crypto, because those are the folks who enjoy the intense moments in our sprint and recharge work culture. We’re a remote-first company looking to hire the absolute best talent all over the world.

Ready to #LiveCrypto? Who you are:

  • You’ve got positive energy. You’re optimistic about the future and determined to get there. 
  • You’re never tired of learning. You want to be a pro in bleeding edge tech like DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, and Web 3.0. 
  • You appreciate direct communication. You’re both an active communicator and an eager listener - because let’s face it, you can’t have one without the other. You’re cool with candid feedback and see every setback as an opportunity to grow.
  • You can pivot on the fly. Crypto is constantly evolving, so our priorities do, too. What you worked on last month may not be what you work on today, and that excites you. You’re not looking for a boring job.
  • You have a “can do” attitude. Our teams create high-quality work on quick timelines. Owning a problem doesn’t scare you, but rather empowers you to take 100% responsibility for achieving our mission.
  • You want to be part of a winning team. We’re stronger together, and you’re a person who embraces being pushed out of your comfort zone.

The Chief of Staff assists the CEO in executing his top priorities. This is a critical, and influential role that facilitates a wide range of initiatives ranging from tactical program management to leading and delivering large cross-functional initiatives. 

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

  • Lead special projects for areas the CEO personally oversees.
  • Serve as a swiss army knife for solving any problem.
  • Prep the CEO for all key engagements and decisions, and when needed act as his stand-in.
  • Proactively resolve problems, and deal with issues before they get to CEO.
  • Develop compelling content and narratives for the CEO for internal and external consumption (company presentations, investors presentations, external interviews and appearances, key meetings etc.).
  • Act as a trusted advisor to the CEO and leadership, elevating insights and analysis on company operations, key management decisions and other areas.

What we look for in you (ie. job requirements):

  • BA / BS degree or equivalent practical experience
  • 4+ years of experience in management consulting and/or in a business operations, strategy or product role at a high growth technology company
  • Strong analytical, and problem solving and interpersonal skills
  • Exceptional communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Comfort working in a high growth, constantly changing environment
  • Demonstrated interest in crypto and a passion for advancing our mission

Nice to haves:

  • Entrepreneurial experience or at an earlier stage high growth technology company.
  • Product management experience.
