Coinbase Sets Up Shop in India, Invites People to Apply for Different Roles
Earlier this year, Coinbase made its plans about entering the Indian market known to the public. Brian Armstrong, Coinbase’ CEO revealed that the firm would be opening an office in the country.
In the announcement that he made through a tweet, Armstrong invited the residents to apply for different positions to work for the cryptocurrency exchange.
Pankaj Gupta, who is acting as the firm’s VP Engineering and Site Lead in India, noted that India hasn’t ventured much in the tech industry.
However, he remarked that a lot of people had expressed their interest to work in various roles. He said that the company was ready to start recruiting hundreds of individuals to work as engineers.
Coinbase hired Pankaj Gupta to lead the company’s operations in India, a role that he took up in April.
Gupta explained that the organization intends to have teams across several sectors, such as infrastructure, platform, cloud, payments, blockchains, crypto, machine learning, data engineering, among others.
One of the best things about working for the newly-created Indian branch is that workers will have the freedom to work from any location as the firm will allow remote working.
Nonetheless, this will be complemented by opening physical offices in major cities. This way, the company will create a hybrid and flexible work environment.
A look at the firm’s website reveals that nearly all of the available positions are remote jobs. There’s just one exception where the individual recruited will have to work from Hyderabad, India.
