Crypto exchange Coinbase's (COIN) chief product officer, Surojit Chatterjee, stepped down as the company restructures its product, engineering and design teams.
The move is part of a restructuring of several of Coinbase's groups. "In connection with Mr. Chatterjee’s resignation, Coinbase’s product, engineering and design teams are being reorganized within a product group structure under which the leaders of such groups will assume responsibility for Coinbase’s product offerings," Coinbase said in the filing.
