Who is Coinbase looking for?

The major American crypto exchange does not have any headquarters and calls itself a ‘remote-first company,’ and already has more than 2,700 employees, according to its official website.

Furthermore, Coinbase is looking for quick learners and people who will “thrive” in its culture. The company claims to offer “competitive compensation” and wants people who live and breathe crypto.

“Crypto is at a critical juncture — public adoption is at an all-time high, crypto companies are more visible than ever before, and the explosion of Web3 applications is uncovering new possibilities every day,” said Brock.

With the crypto boom in 2021, the number of jobs and wages that could be earned in the industry has risen nonetheless. According to a BeInCrypto report, the highest-earning employees in the crypto ecosystem are developers.

Horton is not the company’s first super-experienced director as Marcie Vu who was the ex-Morgan Stanley Head of Consumer Internet Banking, joined the board of directors earlier last month. 

Some top-notch executives have even resigned their jobs to have more focus on crypto. Last week, two YouTube executives left the platform to pursue positions in Web3 companies while Jack Dorsey left his Twitter CEO post to fully dedicate himself to the Block (formerly Square) digital payments company.
