Coinbase is hiring a

Senior Android Engineer, Consumer

San Francisco, United States

Over the last 7 years, we’ve built the leading cryptocurrency platform in the world, serving over 30 million customers in more than 100 countries. As we look towards the next billion customers, and realizing our vision of creating an open financial system for the world, we’re growing our team to help us build a world-class mobile experience.

This is where you come in - we’re hiring Android engineers to help us bridge complex crypto concepts to delightful customer experiences. You’ll build better portfolio tools, launch new financial services, integrate new cryptocurrencies, and expand to new countries. You’ll work closely with our product and design teams to identify what our customers need, and work cross functionally with other engineering and non-engineering teams to get those features out the door. If you’re passionate about cryptocurrency, hard engineering problems, and building great user experiences, this is the place to be.

A little about our team: we’re a tight-knit group with experts in iOS, Android, React Native, design, and product. We have a continuous integration pipeline, desktop build machines to maximize our team’s productivity, and are ruthlessly focused on making our mobile apps easier and safer to build.

First, we assess whether a candidate demonstrates our values: Clear Communication, Positive Energy, Efficient Execution, and Continuous Learning (read more about our values here). Second, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours: we default to trust, embrace feedback, celebrate thoughtful failure, and expect sustained high performance. These cultural signposts help us work together as a championship team (read our full culture doc here). Finally, we’re looking for people who are excited about our mission — building an open financial system for the world, powered by crypto and blockchain.
