As bitcoin surges to all-time highs, the most prominent cryptocurrency exchange is coming to Canada.
San Francisco-based digital currency exchange Coinbase will open a Canadian office in 2021 and has announced it will begin hiring, starting with technical and recruiting roles.
Grant D’Arcy, Coinbase’s VP of People Strategy & Talent made the announcement on Coinbase’s blog last week.
“Canada has long been known as a hub for innovation and its high-quality workforce, and more recently for its crypto talent. We are hiring technical and recruiting roles immediately and will expand to more functions soon,” wrote D’Arcy.
As part of the international expansion announcement, Coinbase further committed to being a remote-first company, which means that new hires in Canada and elsewhere will have the option to work anywhere in their country of hire.
Coinbase anticipates opening a physical office for Canadian employees later in 2021, as COVID-related conditions allow.
Earlier this month Coinbase filed a draft registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, paving the way for the cryptocurrency brokerage to go public.
