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 vision of the Developer Experience org within Infrastructure is to make Coinbase the most enjoyable place in the world for developers to rapidly build and ship quality products. We aim to create experiences where velocity and product quality is high, and developers feel a sense of joy using our products and services every single day.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join a brand new team, the Test Experience team. The team is responsible for developing solutions that enable our engineers to test software throughout the software development lifecycle with the goal of improving our code quality and reducing regression for our users.

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

  • Lead development of testing solutions. Measure its effectiveness and adoption. Actively listen to customer feedback and iterate to improve solutions.
  • Collaborate with engineers, product managers, and leadership to understand testing pain points and develop strategy with detailed roadmap.
  • Be a thoughtful technical voice within the team, aiding in diligent architectural decisions and fostering a culture of high-quality code and engineering processes.
  • Take ownership of the team's processes and services, ensuring SLA adherence.
  • Mentor and collaborate with other members of the team to deliver high quality solutions.

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

  • At least 5 years of experience in software engineering.
  • Passionate about high-quality code and effective software engineering processes, landing changes to improve them.
  • An execution-focused mindset, capable of navigating through ambiguity and delivering results.
  • Deep customer empathy for the developers as our primary customer stakeholders.
  • Strong verbal and written communication. Able to articulate vision and influence stakeholders across the company.
  • Proven experience landing large initiatives, making an impact across the company that changed the status quo.

Nice to haves:
