Founded in June of 2012, Coinbase is a digital currency wallet and platform where merchants and consumers can transact with new digital currencies like bitcoin, ethereum, and litecoin. We're based in San Francisco, California.

Bitcoin is the world's most widely used alternative currency with a total market cap of over $100 billion. The bitcoin network is made up of thousands of computers run by individuals all over the world.

We’ve taken a huge challenge and made it into our mission: To create an open financial system for the world. To achieve this, we are building a team of smart, creative, passionate optimists, the kind of people who see opportunity where others see roadblocks. 



Our values

Our values inform our behavior and the choices we make every day. As a result, our culture is a model of the world we’re trying to build: transparent, joyful, curious, and fast-moving. Our values are a large part of why Coinbase is a great place to work, and why we’ve been successful. They are much more than words to us (and we have the emojis to prove it).



Our mission

We think achieving our mission is the highest leverage way to bring about more economic freedom, innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity in the world. Each member of our team—every engineer, designer, kitchen team member, lawyer, writer, support coordinator, recruiter, and product manager—plays an important role in helping us achieve our mission.



What people say

“Coinbase is growing fast, but there are still more challenges than there are people. So if finding and solving problems lights you up, you’ll have fun here.”

Jesse Pollak
Engineering Manager

“Especially in our engineering culture, we deliver on our value of continuous learning. There are tons of internal presentations and work shares, which is awesome when so many groups are working to solve really interesting problems.”
