We’re excited to announce that Coinbase is establishing operations in Canada for the first time, continuing our international expansion and allowing us to begin hiring from the talented pool of technology and finance professionals in Canada.
Canada has long been known as a hub for innovation and its high-quality workforce, and more recently for its crypto talent. We are hiring technical and recruiting roles immediately and will expand to more functions soon.
As we announced earlier this year, Coinbase is committed to being a remote-first company, which means that new hires in Canada and elsewhere will have the option to work anywhere in their country of hire.
We expect to open a physical office for Canadian employees later in 2021, as COVID-related conditions allow.
Along with active hiring in the US, UK, Ireland, Japan, and the Philippines, establishing a presence in Canada is another important step to building more geographic diversity in our remote-first workforce.
While this news will not impact Coinbase’s product offering in Canada at this time, we look forward to investing in the market and will have more to share in 2021!
