Back To All Jobs Managing Director, Institutional Coverage
New York, NY

Our vision is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity by helping create an open financial system for the world. We are focused on making cryptocurrency accessible to everyone and are guided by two key principles: be the most trusted company in our industry and create products that are easy to use.

The Coinbase Institutional Coverage group plays a critical role in achieving that vision. As public blockchains create an open financial system for the world, institutional investors will need a place to discover, access, and exchange cryptocurrency. We are focused on building the most trusted and secure cryptocurrency custodian, exchange, and prime broker for institutions. These clients will bring additional capital and  liquidity to the industry, ultimately enabling more people to participate in the open financial system.

You will design, implement, and manage processes that allow the business to smoothly scale, creating the most trusted cryptocurrency custodian, exchange, and prime broker for institutions. If you're excited about bringing a new asset class to the financial world, we want you to help lead our team.
