This job is no longer accepting applications.

We’re Coinbase. We’re the world’s most trusted way to join the crypto revolution, serving more than 73 million accounts in more than 100 countries. 

Our mission is to increase economic freedom around the world, and we couldn’t do this without hiring the best people. We’re a group of hard-working overachievers who are deeply focused on building the future of finance and Web 3.0 for our users across the globe, whether they’re trading, storing, staking or using crypto. Know those people who always lead the group project? That’s us.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for candidates who will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, and disrupt ourselves. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people who are excited to learn about and live crypto, because those are the folks who enjoy the intense moments in our sprint and recharge work culture.

Ready to #LiveCrypto? Who you are:

  • You’ve got good vibes. You’re optimistic about the future and determined to get there. 
  • You’re never tired of learning. You want to be a pro in bleeding edge tech like DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, and Web 3.0. 
  • You appreciate direct communication. You’re both an active communicator and an eager listener - because let’s face it, you can’t have one without the other. You’re cool with candid feedback and see every setback as an opportunity to grow.
  • You can pivot on the fly. Crypto is constantly evolving, so our priorities do, too. What you worked on last month may not be what you work on today, and that excites you. You’re not looking for a boring job.
  • You have a “can do” attitude. Our teams create high-quality work on quick timelines. Owning a problem doesn’t scare you, but rather empowers you to take 100% responsibility for achieving our mission.
  • You want to be part of a winning team. We’re stronger together, and you’re a person who embraces being pushed out of your comfort zone. 

Our growing legal team is building out its litigation and regulatory investigation and enforcement practice. You will be working in a cutting edge and fast paced environment, where disruptive technologies and unconventional thinking are the norm. We are seeking an experienced litigation paralegal who can support our growing third party civil requests team, as well as our other litigation teams as needed. This position will report to a Senior Counsel who is based in the US.

What you’ll be doing (ie. job duties):

  • With guidance from attorneys and other members of the litigation team, log, calendar, track, and respond to incoming domestic and international subpoenas, levies, liens, garnishments, letters from counsel and other civil third-party requests.
  • Communicate with opposing counsel and various government agencies regarding outstanding requests with the assistance of attorneys and other members of the litigation team.
  • Provide operational support to maintain, evaluate, and, where needed, improve, Coinbase internal processes to respond to third party civil requests.
  • Assist with the processing and handling of executor and beneficiary requests in connection with Coinbase’s Death of Account Holder process. 
  • Provide support to attorneys responding to incoming attorney demand letters and regulatory complaints. 
  • Draft routine correspondence.
  • Support teams with other projects or tasks on an as-needed basis.

What we look for in you (ie. job requirements):

  • Bachelor’s Degree with 2-4 + years of relevant experience as a litigation paralegal, either at a leading national firm, or comparable in-house practice, ideally with exposure to high growth companies.
  • Experience sending and/or receiving a high volume of civil subpoenas, summons, levies, liens, garnishments, and other third-party requests on a daily basis.  
  • Exceptional professional judgment.
  • Excellent organizational and communication skills.
  • Ability to execute under pressure and within tight timelines while juggling multiple projects.
  • Highest level of accuracy, superb attention to detail, and excellent proofreading skills.
  • Ability to process highly confidential data and maintain discretion.
  • A self-starter with enthusiasm, who can work independently with minimal oversight on certain projects but who is also a team player and can support on projects when needed.
  • Willingness to roll up sleeves (no job too big, no job too small).

Nice to haves:

  • Proficiency with Google Suite (Google Drive, Gmail, Google Calendar), Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Powerpoint, Excel), Docusign, and Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
  • Familiarity with Advologix, Jira, Asana, and Slack or other related software systems, as well as e-discovery platforms like Logikcull and Relativity.
  • Experience with technology companies (ideally Fintech) whether as clients while at a law firm or as an employer.
  • Experience with SQL.
