Back To All Jobs Engineering Manager - Consumer
San Francisco, Ca

Our vision is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity to the world by building an open financial system. Our first step on that journey is making digital currency accessible and approachable for everyone. Two principles guide our efforts. First, be the most trusted company in our domain. Second, create user-focused products that are easier and more delightful to use.

The Coinbase consumer team is critical to executing on both principles. We're focused on building the easiest and most secure way for people around the world to invest in cryptocurrencies. We tackle hard engineering problems to build delightful user experiences and to keep our users' investments safe.

This is where you come in - you'll support our engineering teams in doing their best work, help your direct reports grow into the best version of themselves, and coordinate with the rest of the organization to ensure we're leading with clear communication and efficient execution . You'll manage a team of engineers who own a specific product vertical (i.e. "activation" - sign up to first buy experience) and work closely with a PM & designer to ensure our customer experience is delightful.

A little about our organization: we're a cross-functional product organization with experts in mobile, frontend, backend, product and design. We care deeply about our tools - we've built out a React based frontend, have continuous integration with multiple daily deploys, and are working on decomposing our rails API backend into smaller, encapsulated services. We write our mobile apps in Swift (transitioning from Objective-C) & Java (transitioning to Kotlin) and run a weekly release cycle. We value positive energy, continuous learning, and clear communication and are committed to building an inclusive environment for people from every background.

  • Be a thoughtful technical voice and support your team in making diligent architectural decisions
  • Collaborate with engineers, designers, product managers and senior leadership to turn our vision into a tangible roadmap every quarter.
