How Coinbase is Building our Global Engineering Team

TLDR: Coinbase is now hiring in Brazil and Singapore, building upon remote-first and timezone based regions of work.

By Manish Gupta, EVP of Engineering

Coinbase continues to rapidly grow our Engineering team around the world. As a global company, we need deep technical and market-specific expertise across the key regions we serve. Earlier this year, we established our first tech hub in India, and we continue to aggressively hire in the region across product, engineering, design as well as other roles.

Today we’re announcing that we’re opening up tech hubs and actively building out our Engineering teams in two more countries: Brazil and Singapore. Like India, each has an incredible talent pool of engineers, and we look forward to connecting with world-class talent that can help us achieve our mission. We have already hired senior engineering leaders in both Brazil and Singapore who will act as engineering site leads in these countries, and we are now opening up engineering hiring in both these countries.

Driving Efficiencies Through our New Regions Framework

As a remote-first company, our ambition is to be able to hire anywhere in the world where talent resides. Yet, we also recognize the challenges facing distributed teams, and we work hard at maximizing efficiencies across communications, collaboration, and execution.

That’s why we recently established three distinct regions of work for our Product and Engineering teams — Americas, EMEA and APAC. This regional framework allows us to think about allocating work and creating communities within similar time zones. Our goal is to have team members all work within a single region, meaning one product team may have members in Brazil, the US and Canada. This model provides managers with increased autonomy, and ensures all team members are working in relatively close time zones.

Brazil will align to the Americas region, and Singapore to the APAC region. We plan to continue building hubs in various countries across each region, of various sizes, to help us attract top talent from around the world.
