Coinbase (COIN), the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, will hire up to 2,000 people this year as it seeks to take advantage of opportunities in the development of Web 3 and other areas, Chief People Officer L.J. Brock said in a blog post Tuesday.
- The company plans to expand its product, engineering and design teams.
- "We believe our industry is in its infancy and that building onramps for individuals to participate is critical to driving the next-generation use case of crypto," Brock wrote.
- Coinbase will also add products to expand its offerings in hosting general content such as non-fungible tokens (NFT) and the Coinbase Wallet.
- Coinbase job candidates should prioritize clear communication, efficient execution and continuous learning, among other qualities, according to the post. They should also take a "mission-focused" approach to their work.
