Coinbase has built the world's leading compliant cryptocurrency platform serving over 30 million accounts in more than 100 countries. With multiple successful products, and our vocal advocacy for blockchain technology, we have played a major part in mainstream awareness and adoption of cryptocurrency. We are proud to offer an entire suite of products that are helping build the cryptoeconomy, and increase economic freedom around the world.
There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we assess whether a candidate demonstrates our values: Clear Communication, Positive Energy, Efficient Execution, and Continuous Learning. Second, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, disrupt ourselves, and expect sustained high performance because we play as a championship team. Finally, we seek people with the desire and capacity to build and share expertise in the frontier technologies of crypto and blockchain, in whatever way is most relevant to their role.
As the Director of our development platform, you are responsible for bootstrapping the ecosystem of third-party developers and services that will enable us to execute on our mission of an open financial system. Instead of focusing on the individual or institutional users, you fixate on developers and how to create an innovative, secure, and scalable platform to enable them. Consistent with the breadth of our vision, you have a broad challenge - everything from making trading algorithms easier to test and deploy for professional traders to making blockchain updates easier to respond to in the cloud to helping companies connect with our consumers through self service APIs is within your purview. You will partner with the entirety of Coinbase - all products, service teams, and disciplines - as you work to expose new and useful capabilities to developers. From developer portal design to API documentation to promoting our services on stage, you will wear many hats and spend much of your time meeting with, and learning from, our developers and customers.
