Head of HR M&A

Coinbase has built the world's leading compliant cryptocurrency platform serving over 30 million accounts in more than 100 countries. With multiple successful products, and our vocal advocacy for blockchain technology, we have played a major part in mainstream awareness and adoption of cryptocurrency. We are proud to offer an entire suite of products that are helping build the cryptoeconomy and increase economic freedom around the world.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, disrupt ourselves, and expect sustained high performance because we play as a championship team. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people with the desire and capacity to build and share expertise in the frontier technologies of crypto and blockchain, in whatever way is most relevant to their role.

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

  • Build and lead a team and a function that owns end-to-end HR deal and integration strategy and execution for transactions of all types and sizes - in partnership with our Corporate Development, People, and Leadership teams

  • Cultivate relationships with senior executives across Coinbase and across the M&A ecosystem 
  • Train and mentor other members of the Rewards, People, and Corporate Development teams and invest in attracting and developing new team members 

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

  • 8+ years experience at a top-tier company with direct M&A deal & integration experience. Examples include: HR mergers & acquisitions, HRBP, compensation, corporate development, or management consulting
  • Experience managing deal and integration-related teams

  • Track record of creating and leading internal people programs designed for scale in a high growth environment
  • Outstanding business and global acumen with the ability to lead and partner both cross-functionally and internationally
  • Ability to drive business outcomes autonomously and effectively in a fast-paced environment, and to effectively balance multiple high priority initiatives at once
