Senior Product Manager, Base Ecosystem



United States · Remote
Posted on Saturday, June 10, 2023

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.

In this role, you will own growing user demand and activity on Base, the new Ethereum L2 incubated by Coinbase and powered by Optimism. Your north star is achieving our vision of bringing billions of users onchain.

To get there, you’ll be responsible for defining our long term strategy for enabling and growing world-class user experiences on Base, making prioritization decisions across the different strategies for achieving that, and crafting the specific product offerings that will enable users to have a best-in-class experience on Base. You’ll do this in partnership with internal teams, including the Base teams working to support developers and creatives, as well as partners in the broader Base ecosystem — we aim to do more with less, by lifting up and leveraging the products and tools that our ecosystem is already creating.

What you'll be doing:

  • Define the long term strategy for growing the Base ecosystem to billions of users
  • Own product development from conception to launch for offerings that help our users have a great experience onchain
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with engineering, design and cross-functional teams to develop and steer the user adoption product roadmap
  • Define and analyze metrics to guide our product decision making and user growth efforts in a data-driven way
  • Work with ecosystem builders to minimize how much we need to build from scratch and maximize how much we can leverage the strength of our community

What we look for in you:

  • 6+ years of product management experience with deep cross-functional experience (BD, Legal, Marketing)
  • 3+ years of experience in crypto, including DeFi, NFTs, RWAs, and other segments
  • Exceptional interpersonal communication, relationship management and organizational skills
  • Deep analytical, prioritization and problem solving skills
  • An entrepreneurial mindset with the ability to succeed in a fast-paced environment (e.g. you can run through walls)

Nice to have:

  • Experience growing a crypto ecosystem, with a focus on end user adoption
  • Experience doing smart contract engineering
  • Deep existing network in crypto communities, with a focus on Ethereum
