Coinbase has built the world's leading compliant cryptocurrency platform serving over 30 million accounts in more than 50 countries. With the success of our flagship product, Coinbase Consumer, and our vocal advocacy for blockchain technology, we have played a major part in mainstream awareness and adoption of cryptocurrency. We are now proud to offer an entire suite of products that make accessing cryptocurrencies easy and secure, in addition to new products that operate at the frontiers of crypto and blockchain.

The Coinbase Pro team plays a critical role in executing on that vision. We're building the most secure and trusted digital asset exchange for institutions and professional traders.

You'll also work with our security and risk engineering teams to build trust and safety features to protect user accounts, without compromising on the user experience. If you're excited by the problem space of designing and delivering engaging user experiences, building performant user interfaces, and building trustworthy financial systems, we should talk!

What you'll be doing:
  • Work with engineers, designers, product managers and senior leadership to turn our product and technical vision into a tangible roadmap every quarter.
  • Build, test and ship customer facing features/products using modern tools like React, ES6, Flow, Styled Components, Jest and Webpack.
  • Write high quality, well tested code to meet the needs of your customers.

What we look for in you: 
  • You have at least 4 years of experience in software engineering.
  • You are comfortable working with JavaScript/Typescript.
  • You've developed and shipped user-facing features using component-based UI frameworks.
  • You're passionate about building an open financial system that brings the world together.

Nice to haves:
  • You are an active Coinbase Pro customer.
  • You've worked with production scale React apps.
  • You're staying on top of modern JavaScript and frontend best practices.
  • You've worked on front-end teams in the finance or security space.
