Our  vision  is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity to the world by building an open financial system. Our first step on that  journey  is making digital currency accessible and approachable for everyone. Two principles guide our efforts. First, be the most trusted company in our domain. Second, create user-focused products that are easier and more delightful to use. The Coinbase Prime team plays a critical role in executing on that vision. We’re building the most secure and trusted digital asset exchange for institutions and professional traders. We take on hard engineering problems around scalability, security and financial safety to help our customers invest in the rapidly growing digital asset space, and to protect their investments. This is where you come in - you’ll help build our flagship trading interface, portfolio management features, and entirely new products that the ecosystem hasn’t seen before. You’ll also work with our security and risk engineering teams to build trust and safety features to protect user accounts, without compromising on the user experience. If you’re excited by the problem spaces of designing and delivering engaging user experiences, building performant user interfaces, and building trustworthy financial systems, we should talk! A little about our team: we’re a full-stack product team with experts in frontend, backend, trading, product, and design.
