Base is planning to bring a million developers and a billion users onchain. We need your help to make that happen.

The mission of the Developer Product Group is to make it incredibly easy to build onchain. Our suite of products includes: Base, WaaS, and Cloud. Our most recent offering, Base, is an Ethereum L2 built to scale the crypto economy, the foundation for continuing the onchain journey. Wallet-as-a-Service (WaaS) is an API-based crypto platform that will enable developers to interact with heterogeneous cryptocurrency networks (such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Cardano) in a simple, secure and scalable way. Coinbase Cloud provides web3 APIs, services, and infrastructure to power the next generation of software builders.

We are looking for a Senior Smart Contract Engineer to join the Base team and support the Smart Contract engineering discipline, enabling and accelerating the success of Base. You’ll be working with us as a Core Dev on the open-source OP Stack, which will power the next generation of onchain activity through the Superchain. In addition to direct protocol and smart contract work, you’ll be part of the team building and running the infrastructure, ensuring the systems that sustain the Base chain are low-cost, secure, and best-in-class.

What you'll do:

  • Architect and build secure smart contract protocols and backend services to connect Coinbase users with the crypto ecosystem
  • Drive standardization in crypto protocols by designing and defining interfaces
  • Work closely with the Base leadership and product team to set our onchain strategy and roadmaps
  • Mentor and train other team members on smart contract engineering best practices

What we look for in you:

  • 2+ year Experience with Solidity and smart contract development
  • 3+ year Experience with backend/client side development
  • Deep understanding of smart contract best practices and current industry patterns
  • Extensive experience with crypto (Ethereum, DeFi etc.)
