Managing Director, US
New York, NY

Our vision is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity by helping create an open financial system for the world. We are focused on making digital currency accessible to everyone and are guided by two key principles: be the most trusted company in our industry and create products that are easy to use.

GDAX plays a critical role in achieving that vision. As public blockchains create an open financial system for the world, sophisticated traders will need a place to discover, access, and exchange digital assets. We are focused on building the most trusted and secure digital asset exchange for institutions and professional traders. These traders will bring important liquidity to the industry, providing improved price stability and enabling more people to participate in an open financial system.

This is where you come in — we are looking for someone to lead the day-to-day operations of GDAX. You will build and lead a cross-functional team and represent GDAX to internal and external partners. You will design, implement, and manage processes that allow the business to smoothly scale, creating the most trusted digital asset exchange for institutions and professional traders. If you’re excited about bringing a new asset class to the financial world, we want you to help lead our team.

A little about us: we are a cross-functional, product-driven team dedicated to building the premier digital asset exchange in the world. We value positive energy, continuous learning, and clear communication and are committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment for people from all backgrounds.


  • Build a cross functional team that manages payment operations, risk management, block trading, institutional sales, and customer support for GDAX.
  • Establish, measure, and manage an institutional exchange that operates 24/7/365.
  • Stand up an office and establish a team culture that maintains the Coinbase Mission and Core Values.


  • 8+ years at a U.S. exchange or brokerage, preferably in a general management, prime brokerage, sales and trading, or risk management function.
  • Experience recruiting, hiring, and developing a team, preferably through a period of rapid growth.
  • Strong managerial, organizational, and interpersonal communication skills
  • Experience working cross functionally, preferably with a remote or distributed team.
  • Comfortable working in an innovative and entrepreneurial environment.
  • Familiar with technologies such at Bitcoin and Ethereum


We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
