We’re Coinbase. We’re the world’s most trusted way to join the crypto revolution, serving more than 89 million accounts in more than 100 countries. 

Our mission is to increase economic freedom around the world, and we couldn’t do this without hiring the best people. We’re a group of hard-working overachievers who are deeply focused on building the future of finance and Web 3.0 for our users across the globe, whether they’re trading, storing, staking or using crypto. Know those people who always lead the group project? That’s us.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for candidates who will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, and disrupt ourselves. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people who are excited to learn about and live crypto, because those are the folks who enjoy the intense moments in our sprint and recharge work culture. We’re a remote-first company looking to hire the absolute best talent all over the world.

Ready to #LiveCrypto? Who you are:

  • You’ve got positive energy. You’re optimistic about the future and determined to get there. 
  • You’re never tired of learning. You want to be a pro in bleeding edge tech like DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, and Web 3.0. 
  • You appreciate direct communication. You’re both an active communicator and an eager listener - because let’s face it, you can’t have one without the other. You’re cool with candid feedback and see every setback as an opportunity to grow.
  • You can pivot on the fly. Crypto is constantly evolving, so our priorities do, too. What you worked on last month may not be what you work on today, and that excites you. You’re not looking for a boring job.
  • You have a “can do” attitude. Our teams create high-quality work on quick timelines. Owning a problem doesn’t scare you, but rather empowers you to take 100% responsibility for achieving our mission.
  • You want to be part of a winning team. We’re stronger together, and you’re a person who embraces being pushed out of your comfort zone.

The security team ensures our technology maintains the high bar that has earned us the trust of millions of users who are buying, selling and storing billions of dollars worth of digital assets in our products. We measure ourselves by the impact of the work we do, striving to efficiently lower technical risk at Coinbase. The nature of digital assets we custody causes our work to be focused entirely preventatively, and we fully embrace ‘shifting left.’ We’re looking for kindred souls who believe security is collaborative and prevention is the only scalable security solution. Our developer team moves quickly.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Analyze security capability gaps, develop roadmaps to bridge these gaps, then design, implement, deploy automation to close bespoke gaps.
  • Support engineering with implementing security fixes, ensuring security scanners are utilized correctly, and develop strategies to proactively secure their architecture. 
  • Review development frameworks for security functionality, consistency, and uplift opportunities. Extend bespoke frameworks to close new vulnerabilities and attack angles.
  • Educate and train product teams on security topics and skills to extend AppSec’s reach by deputizing product teams to help themselves.
  • You will own and mature the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) process for the company.

What we look for in you:

  • 8+ years of engineering experience, 5+ years of experience in security.
  • Expertise in at least one programming language: Ruby, Go, JS, Java, etc.
  • Expertise in at least one security domain: web security, cloud security, blockchain security.
  • Experience designing, implementing and deploying efficient and scalable automation company-wide.
  • Experience partnering across eng and non-eng organizations to drive improvements across manual and automated processes.
  • Threat modeling, system design review & code review experience.
  • Experience mentoring junior engineers.

Nice to haves:

  • Experience defining, implementing and deploying SDLC processes and automation company-wide.
  • Experience driving cross-org initiatives impacting all of engineering.
  • Expertise in two or more security domains.
  • Pentesting and/or bug bounty experience.
