Job Description

At Coinbase, 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 Web3 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.

Base is growing, and we’re excited to expand our Developer Relations (DevRel) team. Base is built on Optimism’s open-source OP Stack, and our mission is to build a global onchain economy that increases innovation, creativity, and economic freedom, and DevRel is essential to this effort. We’re joining as the second Core Dev team working on the OP Stack to ensure it’s a public good available to everyone; and contributing a portion of sequencer revenue to funding public goods.

Your work as a Senior Developer Advocate will primarily be focused on building creative onchain experiences with the Base Marketing team in order to help bring the next billion users onchain. You’ll work closely with Base engineering, product, ecosystem, and creative teams and will build on the Developer Relations team.

Come build with us!

What you’ll be doing (ie. job duties):

  • Create onchain apps for the Base Marketing team
  • Write smart contracts in and build engaging user experiences
  • Make it easier for Base builders to develop apps by creating public goods that influence the entire EVM community

What we look for in you (ie. job requirements):

  • 5+ years experience as a software engineer
  • 1+ years of experience building onchain
