Coinbase

Senior Software Engineer, Infrastructure - Platform

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.
  • The Infrastructure org supports the systems, services, and tooling at the foundation of Coinbase's mission to increase economic freedom. We enable Coinbase engineers to design, develop, and operate services quickly, safely, securely and reliably. Infrastructure teams build and maintain the platforms critical to the existence of Coinbase.

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

  • Design and implement foundational infrastructure components used by every engineering team in production (e.g. dynamic configuration, secrets storage, container orchestration, etc)
  • Write high quality, well tested code to meet the needs of your customers.
  • Articulate a long term vision for maintaining and scaling our infrastructure.
  • Manage individual projects priorities, deadlines and deliverables with your technical expertise
  • Work with engineers, designers, product managers and senior leadership to turn our product and technical vision into a tangible roadmap every quarter.
  • What we look for in you (ie. job requirements):

  • You have at least 5+ years of software engineering experience
  • You have strong proficiency with a modern tech stack, like Go or Ruby for languages and gRPC + Protobuf for communication
  • You have designed, built, scaled and maintained production services.
  • You have built systems on public cloud providers such as AWS, GCP or Azure
  • You have demonstrated experience operating critical, high-traffic infrastructure, including proficiency with monitor (via golden signals and service-specific metrics, logs, and traces), unix network debugging, scaling, and proactively addressing performance and reliability concerns.
  • You know what high quality code — and software engineering processes — look like and know how to foster an environment that creates them.
  • Nice to haves:

  • You have gone through a rapid growth in your company (from 10 to 100s of engineers)
  • Strong understanding and proficiency working with various low-level networking primitives and concepts, such as TCP, HTTP, TLS, and DNS.
  • Familiarity with modern authentication schemes such as OAuth, JWTs, or cookies.
  • You've built financial, high reliability or security systems
  • You have experience with Blockchains (such as Bitcoin, Ethereum etc.)
  • Job #: GIN05NA
