Senior Software Engineer, Developer Productivity

Company: Coinbase

Location: New York, NY, USA

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 assess whether a candidate demonstrates our values: Clear Communication, Positive Energy, Efficient Execution, and Continuous Learning. Second, 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. 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.

The Developer Productivity team helps Coinbase engineers realize this vision by enabling them to design, develop and deploy software quickly, reliably and securely. We consider the engineering teams as our customers and work closely with them throughout our development process. We proactively seek out and adopt best practices from the industry and make strategic investments to automate interactions and push responsibility to vendors for undifferentiated tools. Our biggest challenge is to serve a high-velocity engineering organization well during a period of high growth and ambitious goals.
