Regulatory Policy Senior Manager

Coinbase is one of the oldest and largest crypto exchanges, and Coinbase Jobs are one of the most coveted in the industry. Founded in 2012, Coinbase is now a crypto heavyweight with over 68 million verified users and 1,250 employees. Coinbase even went public in 2021 on Nasdaq via a direct listing.

Coinbase was launched by Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam. It is based in San Francisco, California. However, the exchange now has offices spread across multiple cities in US, Europe, and Asia. Coinbase brought in a revenue of $2.23 Billion in Q2 2020, and at the peak of its share price, its valuation exceeded $100 Billion.

Coinbase does not advertise a lot of internship opportunities. However, they do come from time to time.

Coinbase has also embraced remote jobs. Pretty much most positions that Coinbase is hiring for now are remote. However, Coinbase Remote Jobs are country-specific. Meaning, Coinbase still hires people from the countries they operate in, but the positions themselves are remote.

Coinbase is growing rapidly, and at any given time, Coinbase has hundreds of open jobs. Check out the jobs below if you're looking to work for Coinbase.

Job Description

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 have an extraordinary opportunity to be on the leading edge of policy development on digital assets, and will play an important role in advancing Coinbase’s policy strategy with prudential regulators in the United States and abroad. You will work closely with government officials and regulators to help bridge the gap between the regulatory frameworks designed for traditional financial systems and those needed for the next generation financial markets centered on blockchain technologies. You will work with internal business leaders, product development teams, and other support functions like Legal, Compliance, and Communications, to ensure global alignment of our messaging across all U.S. policy functions. This position is fully remote, and can be located anywhere within the United States.

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

  • Helping to develop a best-in-class regulatory affairs program within the global policy organization.
  • Shaping the policy narrative around digital assets and cryptocurrencies in the banking system
  • Becoming a trusted, thoughtful, and transparent resource for prudential policymakers 
  • Engaging prudential regulators in ways that promote continued digital asset innovations and growth.
  • Develop and advocate for efficient and effective regulation of the crypto asset ecosystem through interactions with prudential regulators and global standard setting organizations.
  • Directly engage with officials at relevant federal agencies to explain market practices, industry trends, and product developments to ensure that regulatory discussions are well informed and preserve continued and healthy digital asset innovation and growth.
  • Advise Coinbase leadership on emerging prudential regulatory developments as they relate to the digital asset ecosystem
  • Work with internal Coinbase experts, outside counsels, and economic consulting firms to develop effective responses to public consultations issued by prudential regulators and standard setting organizations on proposed regulatory actions.
  • Collaborate with cross functional Coinbase teams — and through memberships with industry organizations and trade associations — to generate internal analyses that inform policy positions
  • Develop white papers, policy analyses, Coinbase positions, and talking points for public presentations and government briefings

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

  • Bachelor’s + law degree, public policy masters, or equivalent professional degree preferred.
  • 10+ years experience
  • A broad understanding of traditional finance
  • Deep subject matter expertise in one or more of the following areas: implementation or development of U.S. bank regulation, Basel Committee frameworks, Fundamental Review of Trading Book, G-SIB methodology, capital charges, and supplementary leverage ratios.  
  • Strong interest in block chain technology and digital asset policy as it relates to bank and broker-dealer treatment of cryptoassets
  • Significant experience with bank regulation and the balance sheet and trading book treatment of financial assets and corresponding economic exposures; activities within broker-dealer subsidiaries; and have strong skills in organizing and presenting succinct analyses of complicated prudential regulatory matters to executive level audiences and senior government officials.

Nice to haves:

  • Rulemaking, market supervision, or policy advising experience at a U.S. bank regulator or reserve bank, or significant experience interacting with staff at a U.S bank regulator on compliance or policy issues. 
  • Regulatory engagement on Basel standards issued by the Basel Committee on Bank Supervision.

Pay Transparency Notice:  Depending on your work location, the target annual salary for this position can range from $245,225 to $288,500 + target bonus + target equity + benefits (including medical, dental, vision and 401(k)).
