GDAX plays a critical role in achieving that vision. As public blockchains create an open financial system for the world, sophisticated traders will need a place to discover, access, and exchange digital assets. We are focused on building the most trusted and secure digital asset exchange for institutions and professional traders. These traders will bring important liquidity to the industry, providing improved price stability and enabling more people to participate in an open financial system.

  • Develop and manage client relationships by offering a comprehensive suite of coverage services that meet the needs of institutional investors.
  • Partner with Engineering  to incorporate client feedback into the product development process.
  • Work closely with leaders in functions such as legal, compliance, support, operations, and risk to operate a trusted and reliable business.  

  • 15+ years serving institutional clients in multiple functions such as sales, trading, research, client services, prime brokerage, and general management.
