Coinbase

Coinbase is the world’s most popular way to buy and sell bitcoin and ethereum.

Founded in June of 2012, Coinbase is a digital currency wallet and platform where merchants and consumers can transact with new digital currencies like bitcoin and ethereum. We're based in San Francisco, California.

Bitcoin is the world's most widely used alternative currency with a total market cap of approximately $10 billion. The bitcoin network is made up of thousands of computers run by individuals all over the world.

 

Our mission is to create an open financial system for the world

An open financial system is one that is not controlled by any one country or company (just like the internet did for distributing information). We think this is the highest leverage way to bring about more economic freedom, innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity in the world. We have a ten year plan to get there.

  • Imagine if every payment in the world was as fast, cheap, and global as sending an email.
  • Imagine if anyone who had an idea for a product could have customers all over the world from day one.
  • Imagine if anyone with a smartphone had access to the the same financial services we enjoy in the developed world.

An open financial system can be a great equalizer and lift billions out of poverty while accelerating the pace of innovation around the world. This is the best way we know to change the world.

We want to reinvent product marketing for crypto. This requires a 0-to-1 mentality, not just copying what others have already done. Quantitative skills. We need someone who understands ROI, and is ready to help us grow awareness and drive revenue without busting the bottom line. 3+ years of experience with launching products for fast-paced tech companies.
