Remote Senior Software Engineer, Backend (Portal & Services)

Coinbase Remote

Coinbase Developer Platform (CDP) is building the developer tools to bring the world onchain.

Today, onchain development is slow, risky, and painful, even for the most experienced onchain developers. Our goal is to bring a million developers onchain by creating an easy to use and trusted developer experience. We build API and SDK products for developers like wallets, paymaster, staking, stablecoins, onchain data, and more.

We are a small team that moves like a startup at Coinbase, with a fast pace, strong ownership culture, and a relentless commitment to making developers happy.

Coinbase Developer Platform and the Dev Portal is the destination for building and integrating web3 solutions, services, and products. We partner with other Coinbase products such as Base, Wallets-as-a-service, Staking, CB Pay, Advanced Trading, Commerce, Exchange so web3 developers can start building their onchain apps in minutes.

The Portal & Services team owns the portal frontend and backend services that make the platform functional, including user onboarding and IAM as well as other non-product specific services such as customer billing or general API key management. 

What you’ll be doing:

  • Design, develop, and maintain scalable, secure, and high-performing systems in the CDP Portal primarily using Golang, but sometimes also in TypeScript and React
  • Lead the implementation of new features, improvements, and integrations to drive the growth and success of the CDP Portal
  • Design and develop secure, reliable, and well-documented backend service APIs for internal and external consumption
  • Troubleshoot and debug complex issues, ensuring platform stability, reliability, and security
  • Champion and advocate for excellent developer tooling standards in the portal, within the team, and across the organization
  • Contribute to the frontend codebase, maintaining reusable, modular, and well documented frontend components
  • Participate in code reviews, on-call rotation, and foster a team-wide environment that welcomes constructive feedback to maintain high code quality standards 

What we look for in you:

  • Expertise in languages such as Golang (preferred), C, Rust or Python with familiarity in JavaScript or TypeScript
  • Experience with databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB), caching systems (Redis, Memcached), and message queues (Kafka, RabbitMQ)
  • Solid understanding of distributed systems, microservices architecture, and event-driven architectures
  • Comprehensive knowledge of RESTful API design principles and experience with API development, integration and authentication protocols like OAuth and JWT
  • Familiarity with AWS and containerization using Kubernetes
  • Familiarity with React and state management libraries like Redux
  • Understanding of web security best practices and experience with implementing secure coding practices for financial systems
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to work closely with designers and product managers
  • Passion for great developer tooling and opinions on what makes developer platforms excellent
  • Passion for Onchain/Web3 and understanding of blockchain technologies, particularly Ethereum and EVM-compatible chains
  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or equivalent experience
