Coinbase Community Analyst Program

Coinbase is pleased to announce the launch of the Community Analyst Program, also known as the CAP Program. This is an exciting new way for students, professionals, and community members who share our core beliefs to contribute to Coinbase’s mission to increase economic freedom.

If you are a crypto-asset holder, passionate about cryptocurrency or insatiably curious, this is an opportunity to get involved in the fast-paced crypto industry, where you will gain a foundation of experiences and meaningful relationships to build upon!

So let’s cover the basics: why, who, what, where and when?

Why become a community analyst?

With the rapid development of the cryptocurrency industry, Coinbase’s goal to help bridge the cryptocurrency and popularize it will become even more important. As such, we are launching the Community Analyst Program to provide a platform for crypto-enthusiastic individuals to start their crypto career, either on Coinbase or elsewhere in the space. At Coinbase, we believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards of the space, which means developing the next generation of leaders and elite talent to drive growth for the broader industry. This will help accelerate the growth of the industry on a larger scale.

As a community analyst, you will be on the front lines collecting information and signals from community hotspots, in-person events and/or conferences as well as public online resources (including the blockchain). Some of the program’s advantages include:

  • Hourly wages and equipment for Coinbase!
  • Opportunity to influence Coinbase initiatives
  • More career development opportunities
  • Build relationships within your group and in the crypto community
  • Opportunities to meet and get to know the Coinbase team

Who is eligible for the program?

Any undergraduate, graduate students, full-time professionals, or members of the crypto community are encouraged to apply. Community Analysts will be part-time contractors. Depending on the company’s needs and the candidate’s suitability, Coinbase may extend summer internships or full-time offerings.

What is required of a community analyst? Where is the program held?

You must be a crypto native or passionate about digital currencies and relentlessly curious. The program is completely remote. Assignments will include both virtual and real components, such as:

  • Inclusion in crypto, sharing, and relationship building communities in community hotspots across Discord, Telegram, Twitter and other outlets.
  • Issuing periodic reports or research analysis on emerging trends, community ethos, and grassroots activities.
  • Attend personal meetups or crypto industry conferences as needed.
  • Average commitment 10-15 hours per week.

You’ll update the Coinbase team during the biweekly screening calls and keep us posted on your progress via group chats. We expect community analysts to be self-motivated and dedicated to achieving measurable results.

When does the program start?

The inaugural program group will be launched from January 2022 until May 2022, and will be called the “Spring Package”. The fall cohort is scheduled to run in September 2022 to December 2022. The spring and fall cohorts are expected to occur each year that the program is active.

How do I join?

To join, you must first fill out the application form here. Those interested should have a basic knowledge of the cryptocurrency industry and the blockchain space. If you are selected, you will place a call with our partners to ensure that our goals and expectations are aligned. If you go through the phone check process, the setup process will begin – more details will be shared at that time.

Being a community analyst leads to opportunities to expand your role, such as potential summer internship offers, full-time offers or even development opportunities within the communities you participate in. More information about opportunities to join a Coinbase summer internship or a full-time offer will be given upon successful completion of the programme. Note: Community Analysts will be contracted through a third party and will not be hired as full-time employees of the company.

Note: Make sure you are interacting with legitimate Coinbase employees
All communications from the Coinbase team will be sent from a coinbase.com email address. We will never ask you to send money to a third party, provide your private keys or seed phrase, or use a Bitcoin ATM as part of your analysis. While we may need to verify your identity as part of the contracting process, do not provide your personal information or government-issued identification to anyone except the third-party provider, Estridge. If you have any questions about the authenticity of the connection, please forward it to security@coinbase.com for review.
